The next part of our vacation took us to Branson, Missouri. There we spent 4 nights, just us and our little Casita. However this park had lots of RV's, some even looked pretty permanent. Rates were $18 a night, including cable, if we had only taken a TV.
We arrived on Monday about mid-day. After getting all settled in, we went for a little dinner. It was then to the Presley's music show. It was a grand show, but my pictures weren't. :(
On Tuesday we checked out a bunch of antique shops, and the Branson Landing. I also stopped by the Quilts & Quilts shop for a couple pieces of fabric.
Wednesday morning we were up before the crack of dawn! It would be our first trip to Silver Dollar City in over 30 years.
We even dressed the part. You see the blacksmith was lucky enough to hang out with another blacksmith, Pat McCarty, for the day.
I spent the biggest part of the day watching my friend, Mary Jo McCarty, weave baskets. Of course in the end I had to buy one.
See the scare crow? He's a real person! He stood at attention at the entrance, that is until he found a likely candidate. I laughed so hard. It was hilarious seeing grown men scream!
It was the Craftsman's Festival. Here we watched the wood carver/master painter.
A wooden rolling pin was being turned here.
Skillet dinners were everywhere, and each one was different. Now this is one large skillet of fried potatoes.
This group told stories and sang too.
So this is where we went.
This is what I had! The best chicken and dumplings!
More vacation stories with lots of music, next time!
