A Restful Day and Grenada Lake and Campground

I woke up with a headache and feeling like I was trying to move around inside a room of cotton batten. I managed to go outside for my walk but was only out about 20 minutes. The roads in the campground have large rocks, not good for running and the road outside the campground was too busy. It was about 60F (16C), cloudy and dreary.

Most of the morning was spent napping, reading and watching the satellite weather. We were under a tornado watch. I watched the rain come in on the internet on satellite and it arrived around 12:20 p.m. but it didn't rain that much and it was on and off.

We decided to go ahead and go to Grenada Lake. It's a Corps of Engineers area and the State Park is within it. The campground is beautiful and very scenic. We drove around a bit and went to the Visitor Center. Corps of Engineers parks are half price for those with the America the Beautiful pass. We're thinking about moving over there and staying a few days.......

We also did a tour of the downtown area. It has a nice square but the downtown looks kind of run down and lots of shops were vacant.

According to the satellite there's another storm heading for us with a strong wind advisory and severe thunderstorm watch but the tornado watch has been lifted.

Our high today only reached about 63F (17C) but it was nice when the sun came out!
