Outside Photos At The Hotel in Missouri

Monday, November 18

1 (1)It was fun to open our hotel room curtain early each morning, then open the sliding glass door to our small deck overlooking the lake and watch the sunrise.

1 (6)It was about this time that I made coffee (in the pot in our room) and began to blog about the previous day – while Cerwin was out in the field anticipating a day of hunting.

1 (7)Because Monday was the nicest day that we were there, I chose that afternoon to walk around the hotel grounds and boat dock.

1 (15)Our room was on the second floor – somewhere in the middle of this picture. To give you an idea of how steep the hill is on the way to the lake – the main entrance on the other side of the hotel is on the 4th floor.

I can hardly wait to go back to Osage Beach some day.

I told Cerwin a story that one of the women told me about their first trip to Whitetail Trophy Hunt.

When her husband asked her to go along on this hunt several years ago – with another couple she did not know. She declared that she was not going because she didn’t know his friend’s wife or any of the other women.

No matter how many times he pleaded with her to go along, she said no. Finally he said, “I will give you one hundred dollars a day if you will go along.” She finally agreed to go.

He did not have a good hunt on any of the three days, and said that he was not going back the next year. She said, “I’ll give you one hundred dollars a day if you will go back.” 🙂

  1. I think these photos are the best you’ve posted from this trip! I particularly love the 2nd leaf shot, the wheat shot and the one that follows — and all the reflection shots. What a magnificent walk you had! Ir sounds as if you will be back to the whitetail hunt another time!
