Watery Wednesday # 32

Fall Creek Falls, Tennessee.  April 21, 2009.

Fall Creek Falls, Tennessee. April 21, 2009.

This is my post for Watery Wednesday, a weekly meme created and hosted by 2sweetnsaxy of Eyes Mind Heart.  To see more of our beautiful watery world, or to join and post your pictures to share, click HERE.

As I mentioned in my last post, Betsy and I went to Texas over the weekend to see our granddaughters play softball.  We didn’t see any softball games but we did see plenty of rain.  So we had a very watery weekend.

The picture above was taken yesterday (Tuesday) on our way home from Texas.  This is one of our very favorite spots — Fall Creek Falls here in Tennessee.

Since Tuesday was April 21, we just had to stop by to see these falls.  Betsy and I went to Fall Creek Falls State Park on April 21, 2001.  It was our fourth date, but the first on which we spent the whole day together.  We went to see waterfalls (there are five in the park).

Although that day was the beginning of our waterfall collection, the waterfalls were definitely only the second best thing about the day.  The best thing about that day eight years ago was that I got to kiss Betsy for the first time.

Now that is something to remember!

    Ahhh what a special place.
    You sure did have a watery vacation to TX-I saw lots of rain there on the news.

    This is a very romantic post! And amazing, too. The amazing is that you remember so many details about your dates after all these years. It’s strange for a man. I know only a few men that remember details from their romantic past. And waterfall is the best place for a date.
