Camden, Tennessee

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 75 miles from Savannah to Camden, Tennessee.

Along the way we traveled on some narrow back roads…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…


Our first stop was at a rather unusual place…the Birdsong Marina, Campground and Pearl Farm/Museum. The next photo is of an aerial photo of the 58 acre complex…


And a photo of one of their advertisements…


Owners Bob and Judy Keast have two very complete websites. Here’s the link for the marina/campground…

Bob told us that this is the only freshwater pearl farm in North America. Here’s the link for the Pearl Farm/Museum…

Here are some of the photos that I took there…

Then on into Camden where we parked the motorhome at the back of Elks Club #2156…


and my usual dinette window photo…


I then unhooked the Bronco to drive the Bronco the about five miles to the Patsy Cline Crash Site Memorial location. Patsy Cline was a very famous country-western music singer who was only 30 years old when she died. You can read about her and the crash by clicking this Wikipedia link…

Once you reach the parking area you have to walk down an incline for about 300 yards. Mary wasn’t up to the return climb so she waited for me at the top…








Once you know where to look you can barely see the rock through the trees…


In 2007 I passed through Patsy’s hometown of Winchester, Virginia and visited her two homes, the drugstore where she once worked and her grave site. You can see those photos by clicking this Picasa Web Album link…

Upon return to the Elks club we went inside and met a bunch of very friendly people. So much so that when we exited two hours later we declared Elks club #2156 in Camden, Tennessee…The Friendliest Elks Club In The United States!

We will move along further down the road later this morning.

Enjoying interesting places and museums is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

The red dot on the below map shows our approximate location near Memphis in the State of Tennessee. You may double left-click the map to make it larger…


Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!

Click this link to start the video. Make sure you have your speakers turned on and go to full screen asap.
