After leaving Pigeon Forge, we moved about 4 hours west to Barton Springs Campground in Normandy, Tn.. This was a Federal run campground so we were able to use our Senior card which gave us 50% off. Water and 50 amp service for $11.00, I love these places.
|The water is very low and normally is up to the area where the lawn turns green.|
We took off in the Jeep to check out the distilleries, one of which was only about three miles from us. On our way we passed through the center of Normandy.
|That's the center of town ahead.|
|From the center of town it was only about a mile to the #2 of two distillers in the state.|
As you can see, not too many people know of this place so we had the personal tour and it was really interesting.
|Inside the welcome building there were displays telling the history of Dickel Distillery|
|Joyce really like the open area of the Welcome Center.|
|She'd like our next home to be like this.......man, we just sold our home and she's looking.|
|It is really nice.|
|Across the street you will find the distillery. There's no picture taking inside.|
|One of the employees who is a big guy, comes to work on this everyday.|
Heading back to camp brought us by this sleeping dozer. I had to back up to get this picture because it reminded me of something my buddy probably would have broken during operation.
