Saturday Fun

This past Saturday we decided to go exploring a bit. A co-worker had told David about Dunn's Falls near Enterprise, MS so we went to check it out.Even tho the falls were pretty it really wasn't what we were expecting. But we still had a good time exploring.The mighty Chunky river that the falls dumped into.
It was interesting to read that this grist mill had been moved from GA and rebuilt here. Some of the trees were still showing some color.Love this brilliant red.Wondering if this is a turkey feather? There were a few laying close together.
The next place we went was Roosevelt State Park. This was a park hubbie's family went to when he was a little boy. It was very nice with a small motel and cabins you can rent. The lake was really pretty as was the rest of the area.Well you know as soon as I heard they had a deer pen I had to go check it out. I think deer and horses have the prettiest eyes. I couldn't resist petting them but they didn't really smell too good!

Hope your Saturday was great!

HiSusie,

That looks like an interesting place to explore. That looks like it could be a turkey feather. We were at that state park years ago. GLad you found some colorful foliage. Ours has not been very colorful here. Hope you have a great new week!

We've been to Dunn's Falls, Susie... We found it totally by accident. We were headed south through Mississippi --headed to Texas a couple of years ago.

WELL--we saw that signs saying Dunn's FALLS---so you know that we just HAD to check it out... And we did just that!!! Somewhere I have pictures also.

The colors really are pretty down there. Ours are GONE!!!!

Glad you were able to get out on Saturday.
Hugs,
Betsy

Looks like a lovely day to get out with your husband and enjoy the beauty all around. You did find beautiful scenery and I also find deer have beautiful eyes. "Doe eyes" is a description that does indeed note their beauty.

That sounds like a nice outing Susie...love all of the photos, the fall color is gorgeous to me. That does look like a turkey feather to me...Deer are sweet to look at!

Mildred said...

So happy to hear you two had a chance to explore a little. I know how you love to hike. Looks very serene and a great place to relax. Hope your week is a good one.

Susie, your new header just screams fall--lovely! Looks like there is still lots of fall color around you; the grist mill is so picturesque. And yes, I'd have to pet the deer, too; glad they were in a pen and not out in the wilds now that hunting season has started.

Milah said...

That place is beautiful! Lucky you for getting to see it. ;D

Ginger said...

I've never heard of Dunn's Falls!! Beautiful fall colors there!

Aren't those old mills wonderful subjects for photographers? You don't see very many anymore. I agree, deer have the most beautiful eyes.

A gently walk with nature is always good for the soul. Very interesting mill...it would be fun to do a photo shoot of it in different camera settings and angles!
Perhaps an angel dropped the feather Susie!
Thank you for your continued encouragement as I walk this next leg of my healing journey! hugs xo

Anything that had a waterfall would attract me. It looks very pretty and like it was the perfect day for exploring. I love deers eyes too, just so big and innocent.

Rosey Pollen said...

Super colors on your header! I have a love/hate thing going on with the deer. They are cute as heck but they are somewhat of a nuisance. I can appreciate their beauty a lot more if they are not in my yard. Your waterfall pics very cool. Glad you shared!

Love the pictures. What a beautiful place right here in our own MS.

Love the way my horses smell. Some people probably think they are stinky. But, they are my kids.

Terri said...

As usual, your photos are lovely! :) I always forget that we have scenery like that here, too - if I'd just go out and find it!

George said...

I'm glad you had a chance to visit Dunn's Falls. As Betsy said, we found it by accident while on our way to Texas a couple of years ago. You know we could never pass up the chance to visit a waterfall!

Daisy said...

Susie, what fun for you and your husband to have some time to go out and explore. I enjoyed seeing the sights too! I love the ducks swimming on the water. Very peaceful. :)

Marlene said...

Hi, Susie love, love, love your blog and your part of the country. Just wanted to THANK YOU for becoming my very first follower. YIPPEE! I'm new to blogging.
Looking foward to much learning from you!!

Kanak Hagjer said...

Hi Susie...thanks for the lovely tour! The fall colours are so pretty and I'm glad you included that feather!! As for those eyes, I agree with you. Great way to spend a Saturday!

Becky said...

Hey sissy.....LUV the pics. I see you guys still have leaves on your trees, none here, they are all on the ground....ugh!!!

Jen said...

Hey Susie
Looks like you picked a good day for a day trip. That looks like a turkey feather to me. Maybe he's shedding to avoid anyone recognizing him...it's only a week away you know. ha.

Meadowview Thymes said...

Sounds like a fun Saturday Susie. The colors are beautiful!

Di said...

Susie, love your header photo and the reflection of the water. Old buildings such as your grist mill, old barns, old vacant houses... always captivating for me. Perhaps its the character, the test of time... that makes me want to linger. Have a great weekend.

Johnnny said...

Hi to MS from ND. Pretty pictures. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

TC said...

You need a deer proof nose Ms. Susie! ;~P

A. Joy said...

Very picturesque place! Neat - a deer farm! I saw quite a few of those in Australia as they have no deer in the wild. Kind of wonder how that works. Maybe like a llama farm?

Leedra said...

A deer pen? Never heard of one. I like the fall colors photo with the golden yellow. Just has that look.

Marjorie (Molly) Smith said...

So I just love Roosevelt State park, my son and his family camp there every year. It is so quite and peaceful. I also took my Grandson there to meet the photographer who made his Senior pictures there, a little drive but well worth it. The friend that took pictures lives in Forrest.

come on... you didn't kiss that nose! next time ya gotta smooch the nose!
