Mississippi

He he he: I'm on vacation again. It's a rabbit's life.
Here I am with Dad looking at the map of Missouri. They're pretty clever in this state, the way they hide the middle part of the map behind the doors. Keep some mystery for us.
But we're not here to see Missouri anyway. Our mission today is Mississippi. First stop: lunch in a park. They promise a lake down the road.
Then on to Wall Doxie State Park, near Holly Springs. I like it - the trees sit in the lake with their knees up.
Here's Dad and me looking at the map.In the morning we found a bigger lake, one with mist on it and guys out fishing but it doesn't have a fun swampy area where the trees sit with their knees out.
Hiking around this lake we heard lots of different kinds of birds, and made a rare sighting of the elusive Straight Bristled Toothbrush, in it's Blue Phase.
After that we drove through a lot of small towns on the Delta, and crossed into Arkansas. Rosie's Kitchen was closed. There isn't much open on Sundays in some places. But we found nourishment at a mexican restaurant in West Helena, and eventually made it to Mountain Home.
Catch ya'll later!

Hi Amanda,
Dad's doing pretty well, thanks. Huffs and puffs up the hills, but he's alright.
Ciao,
