Relaxing at Defeated with Friends

We have had such a relaxing time here at Defeated Creek with our friends. This place just makes you want to sit back and do nothing…and we have done a lot of that the last few days.

Other than Happy Hours and a couple of Grill-outs we have done a lot of nothing.

Friday, we just hung out because we had planned to cook Hamburgers for dinner since John & Sandy were due to arrive. We were anxious to meet them in person. We had a great dinner with friends, old and new.

The sunsets here at Defeated are amazing overlooking the lake.

Saturday, Tony came over and asked us if we would like to take a drive with them…he wouldn’t tell us where, just that I needed to take my camera…LOL. Like I would go anywhere here without it!

We took several back roads and ended up at The Amish Store! Even in Kentucky there are Amish Stores….and yes I mean Kentucky…we crossed the state line back a ways…Mac took photos of Rick while Lisa and I did a little shopping. We bought Apples, Peach Bread, Blackberry Butter…not sure what all Lisa bought, but it looked like a lot of things.

After we left the Amish Store we headed back toward Defeated and stopped at Harper’s Restaurant.

Tony & Lisa had a Catfish Dinner and Mac & I had the Shrimp Dinner. It was very good and the place was packed.It’s amazing how you can find these out of the way places and the food is so good!

We passed many barns filled with hanging Tobacco and hills with trees just beginning to change colors.

We also passed a T-Pee complete with horses, a couple of cabins, a covered bridge, and Halloween decorations…

An amazing day with friends! We made it back to the campground just in time for Happy Hour!! We had a great visit with friends and then sat around the campfire and made s’mores  before finally calling it a night.

Today, Chuck & Kathy, Nolan & Donna and Don & Jenny will arrive. We have planned to just grill Hot Dogs, Brats and Sausages for dinner so they won’t have to worry about dinner.

Things will be picking up around here now! We only have one more couple to arrive…Ken & Cindy will be here on Wednesday.

Monday we have a Happy Hour planned with all the friends here and Darrel & Judy coming from Lebanon and Larry & Melissa coming from over by Nashville to join us.

Stay tuned for more adventures!!
