Eagle Cove Resort

Once again it was time for the annual fall/winter meet up with the Cooper family at Eagle Cove Resort on Dale Hollow Lake near Cookeville, TN.  This year the event took place during the first weekend of November.  We certainly enjoyed the family, food and lovely fall weather.

In addition, we enjoyed two days with my brother, Hew, at his place on Nolin Lake in central Kentucky.  We appreciate his hospitality and had a great time visiting with him and Peanut.  Finally, we spent one night in Louisville with Nancy and had lunch with her, Alyson and Corey.  Our thanks for putting us up for the night before our return to Nashville for our return flight.

Finally, our thanks to Ralph and Carlie for allowing us to park our motorhome on their property.  This has been a great convenience for us and has allowed us to visit with them and their family as well.

We need/want to make a 3 week trip back to Los Angeles in order to take care of some health and dental checkups and to visit with family and friends.  This requires that we stash the motorhome somewhere while we make the trip.  The plan we developed was to park it at a storage lot near my sister’s house in Tullahoma, TN, spend a few days with her, my nieces and great nephews before flying out of Nashville.

Family Reunion 2014

Once again it was time for our Cooper family reunion at the Eagles Cove Resort on Dale Hollow Lake.  We have this each year on the weekend following the Thanksgiving weekend.  Valerie and I flew into Nashville where we were met by my sister and then spent the night with her before heading to Dale Hollow Lake.

Our cabins on the lake

Along with my three siblings, we arrive at the lake on Wednesday, spend Wednesday and Thursday together before the rest of the family arrives on Friday.  In all we total 25, I think.  I suppose you could call it habit or repetition, but we follow a similar menu format each year which simplifies the planning somewhat.  It’s a lot of fun, a lot of laughs, food and love.

Breakfast anyone?
