I'm in a quandary. It's a well-known fact that Pam is not in Florida anymore, yet my blog address says otherwise.
This is the Ocoee River, site of the 1996 Summer Olympics Whitewater Sports. The TVA did not have the water running on this day which is why you can see all the rocks. (I have rafted this river about 4 times, though not since we arrived here... still too cold!).
I can be overly analytical and the fact that you arrived here by clicking on, or typing in, Paminflorida.blogspot. com disturbs me a bit; it just doesn't sit well.
An errant leaf left over from Autumn floats gently down the Ocoee River.
When we began making plans to move to the mountains, I created a new site. It's found at Pamthemountaineer.blogspot.com
Much more fitting, wouldn't you say?
This is Ocoee Lake in Polk County, TN. The river feeds into it. It's just a few miles down the road from us; it's shore, and that of the river, make a beautiful scenic drive.
Having originated in the Northeast and moving to Florida before relocating here, we are classified by the locals as Halfbacks. Half way back from Florida to the Northeast; and there are a lot of us here!!
Another view of the Ocoee Lake, this one taken from the dam.
Therefore, the new blog is aptly titled...
Reflections of a Halfback.
This is the Apalachia Reservoir located just below the Hiwassee Dam. Again, located just a few miles from our house, but in the opposite direction.
But there's a part of me (the emotional part) that doesn't want to abandon the 10,000+ visits and 200+ posts located here on Rest Awhile.
So, what's a girl to do?
Remain faithful here at Rest Awhile where Paminflorida is a misnomer;
Or, move on over to Reflections of a Halfback where Pamthemountaineer is fitting?
Tell me... should I stay or should I go?
This was taken at my bank the same day I took the closeup of the tulips you've seen here previously. Cheerful, aren't they?
All of the scenic water shots were taken about a month ago. You should see how green everything is now... I'll show you eventually!
