Rainy day post......

Our Location: Big Buck Resort, Hornsby, Tennessee
(205 Sparks Road)

(Yesterday's post)

(All pictures were taken Tuesday, March 27 in Bolivar)

I woke this morning a few times to the pitter patter of rain on the roof. As I kind of lazed around hoping  it would stop it in fact picked up and instead of pitter patter it was a more constant  drum, drum, drum. Oh well, we knew it was coming and we can do a few things inside anyway. 

A busy little hardware store, Bolivar Hardware, and the plants for spring planting can't be wrong, spring must be here......

It was 8 am when I finally got up, nothing to hurry up for as there is no where to go, and nothing we can do outside either. I don't like to drive in the rain so we'll be staying home today.

Do you see the dark patch on the road, we turn just at the end of it.

It's warm outside, the temperature says 62F/16F and it's only 8:30 am. A warm overnight as well, it feels as if I can put the fleece jammies away for a week or two at least. I hope Ontario is also getting the warm temperatures. 
You don't get a warning sign and the the Big Buck Sign is tucked behind the Sparks Road sign...

The day was a lazy day with nothing exciting happening except the return of Axel the Husky. The rain continued all day and when it wasn't raining it was so misty that it might as well have been rain drops. It's nice to be young and two of the three young men from across the driveway were out riding an ATV around and around the park. At one point I ask them if they would mind taking our garbage to the dumpster and they were more than happy to help me out. 

It's not far from the road....

The range of thunderstorms in the area made an appearance about the time I was going to finish this post and since the lightning was crashing around I decided that it would wait until later when there was little chance of any issues with electronics. So that's the reason for the delay in posting until this morning. 

The clubhouse doesn't seem to be used much when we're here..... You can rent paddle boats as well. I see a stand for canoes but haven't seen any there.

So a lazy day with nothing but rain all day. A good day for reading which I did a lot, almost finished my book. David Baldacci 's First Family. A good read. 

You can see the length of the park, we're parked on the other side of the cabins, not far from that first white camper you see.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you stayed dry!!! Feel free to leave a comment. 

Until next time..... take care, be safe, 



  1. Sounds very much like the weather we are having here, but always something to do.
    Love David Baldacci books have read quite a few of them.
    Lets hope we can get some nicer weather by the time we get back home.

    1. I don't mind the rain, although it makes for dull blog reading. Hahaha.....
      I like Baldacci as well. Always a step a head of the others I think.
      I"m hoping for nice weather when we reach Southern Ontario as we'll be there for a bit before heading further north to our summer location. Don't want to get there before early May, too cold and wet.

      Take care, stay dry.

  2. Quite a bit of rain all through the south. Hope the tornadoes stay away. Same weather here at home too.

    1. The rain I can handle, the winds haven't been much, the storms haven't been severe either. A bit of a zapper last night but nothing crazy, just a regular old thunder boomer.

      Take care, be safe,
