Saturday, March 10, 2018 - Moundville Archaeological Park, Moundsville, AL, Day 2 - 0 Miles, 6,223.8 Towing Miles For the Trip

Not too bad a night as far as trains. There were a few, including a couple in the "wee" hours, but they didn't seem to be as loud. I don't know if I slept through some of them, but probably not.

After breakfast, coffee, and reading my usual blogs & forums, I headed over to the museum. They have an amazing number of pots & vessels & other artifacts on display. I particularly liked the duck vessel carved from stone. The entire display area of the museum is very dark - I had to push the ISO on the camera & still had some overly dark images. Still, here are a few to give you an idea of what is here.


On the way out I bought a couple of postcards for the grandkids, and a present for an upcoming birthday.

I've seen Indian Tacos on menus at a couple of roadside stands, and since they were selling them here, I went for one for lunch. A piece of fried bread topped with the usual taco items. Not bad, although far more than I'm used to eating for lunch. probably won't need much in the way of dinner!

The 60% prediction for rain hasn't happened yet, although there are bouts of sun & heavy clouds. I decided it was warm enough to take a campground shower, so, the usual report:  The good - lots of water from a low volume, but regular pressure showerhead, a bench in the drying room and a shower curtain at the entrance.  The bad, only lukewarm water, only one hook, no shelves in the shower area, and no shower curtain between the shower & drying area, resulting in a very wet floor (but not the 1" of water back at Roosevelt State Park). 

As expected, dinner was just some cheese & crackers. Still filled from lunch.

Until tomorrow -
