Return to Crossville

After spending a quick overnight in Paducah, we have spent the last two nights in Crossville enjoying this charming spot in one of our favorite campgrounds.

We're planning a return visit to Paducah in about a month, so we'll share more about that town then. The most noteworthy sights during our drive from Monett across southern Missouri were a couple of bridges. First up was this skinny little thing that crosses the Mississippi River. Two lanes and no shoulders made it an extra challenging crossing.

Minutes later we made a right turn and faced another bridge! This one crosses the Ohio River. We breathed a sigh of relief at the sight of that itty bitty bit of shoulder which, compared to the previous bridge, seemed huge! Thankfully there was very little traffic on both, and we didn't meet a single semi on the way. Paul did an awesome job!

Just off the bridges, tucked away in the bushes, was this sign welcoming us to Kentucky. It's almost as if, after the two scary crossings it took to get here, the state didn't want us to know where we were!

After resting up in Paducah, we didn't have to cross any bridges to get into Tennessee. Although our friends who live here joked that we might have to check our shoes at the state line. (Of course, we didn't!) Our days here have been as wonderful and restful as they were when we were here last year.

Tomorrow we're heading on to South Carolina. But, it won't be long and we'll be back here in Tennessee!

Let us know if you return to Crossville. We hope to be in TN early next week and will be spending the month in Jamestown, TN. We'll be visiting Crossville and Cookeville on a regular basis.
