Traveling The Natchez Trace Parkway - Cypress Swamp



At mile marker 122.0, you will find the Cypress Swamp. This is definitely a must see stop.


Here at the Cypress Swamp you can walk on a half a mile trail through a water tupelo/cypress swamp.


As you start this trail, you go walking along a board walk over the swamp.


We all enjoyed looking at the cypress trees and marveling about them.


Be sure and stop here to get a close up view of the swamp.

Weekly Goals for the week of July 21, 2014


Last week I had big plans to get a lot done but I really have no clue what happened. As you can see from my list from last week, I really didn't get anything done from my list. I am hoping this week goes better than last week.

  1. Continue working on the house. Cleaning, dejunking and organizing. I am wanting to get rid of at least 50 items this week.
  2. Work on my eBook.
  3. Write 2 posts for 2 websites that I write for. - I only got one done this week.
  4. Read 1 book this week.
  5. Do something fun as a family this week.

Since last week was such a flop, I am going to keep my list the same and see if I can accomplish something this week to cross off the list.
  1. Continue working on the house. Cleaning, dejunking and organizing. I am wanting to get rid of at least 50 items this week.
  2. Work on my eBook.
  3. Write 1 posts for a website that I write for.
  4. Read 1 book this week.
  5. Do something fun as a family this week.
Here's to a new week. I hope it is better than last week.

Traveling The Natchez Trace Parkway - Reservoir Overlook


When you come to mile marker 105.6 along the Natchez Trace Parkway, you have to stop here and get out of your vehicle to look at this lake and the view.

I think a lot of the locals come here for the day, because at this stop we saw more people than what we saw at any other stops and hardly anyone was traveling the parkway.



The scenery here is just amazing.




We got a kick out of these two people resting in their hammocks.

When you leave here and get back on the Parkway, the parkway will go around part of the reservoir so you will get to look at more of this water as you travel.

Weekly Goals for the week of July 14, 2014


This past week was busy yet relaxing at the same time. We attended the Coast Bible Conference this past weekend and had a good time. This conference has been going on for 71 years and I have been going for the last 20 years. It is always a good time, yet busy.

This week I had planned to get more done than what I did but that is OK. Here is what I wanted to get done:
  1. Read at least 2 books to the kids this week.
  2. Continue working on the house. Cleaning, dejunking and organizing. I am wanting to get rid of at least 50 items this week.
  3. Work on my eBook.
  4. Attend the Coast Bible Conference this weekend.
  5. Relax a little to get back up and running
 This past week was just what I needed to get back into the groove of things after being sick. So after my little bit of a break, I am ready to get back into the swing of things. So here is what I want to accomplish this week.
  1. Continue working on the house. Cleaning, dejunking and organizing. I am wanting to get rid of at least 50 items this week.
  2. Work on my eBook.
  3. Write 2 posts for 2 websites that I write for.
  4. Read 1 book this week.
  5. Do something fun as a family this week.
This is what I am hoping to accomplish this week. How about you, what is on your to do list for this week?
