 Some more metal flowers outside the entrance to the Center.
 A little metal man stands among the flowers. Wherever you look you find something interesting. 
Hurricane Bridge on Highway 56. The draped area on the left of the bridge is where they are currently working and only one lane is open on the bridge. Our cabin is off Highway 56 on the left side of the photo and the right side of the photo is where the Center is located. Please enlarge the photo. On the left side is where the main channel is located and it is around 160 feet deep and on the right side is the shallow (if you can call it shallow but compared to the other side it is shallow) end. We were told that the bridge was built in the same time frame and style as the one that collapsed a few years ago up north. Glad they are fixing it.  Now for a little unpleasant history. A few years back a fellow was killed and his body was tossed off the shallow end of the bridge. If they had thrown him off on the other side he might not have been found as he was weighted down. The kitty justice is the murderers were not familiar with the depth of the lake from the bridge.

Looks like an awesome area, Di... Hope you have a good WEEK at the Center.. We went to Edgar Evins State Park once --and then drove around the Center Hill Lake area. We also went to a Country Music/Bluegrass Festival once in Smithville. It is pretty there!!!!

If you can down the interstate and got on Hwy 56, you went across the bridge when you went to Smithville. Peace

Hi Dianne ~~ I love the metal flowers and your photos are very good
as always. It is nice that you and Prince do so much traveling and sight seeing, and then share it all with us. Thank you very much. You show us places and things we will never see, except for here.
I am so glad that you enjoyed the jokes I posted. Take care dear friend, I wish you enough. Peace and Love, Merle.
