T Stands for Tuesday & Hub's River Trip

Hi everyone,
   Happy T Stands for Tuesday where we share a drink related post. You are most welcome to visit and/or join us-our hostess is Bleubeard and Elizabeth. Find the link to the party in my right hand column

   I have a bit of time before I need to gather ingredients for supper tonight-this is the last night of deer camp and our guests will leave for home early tomorrow morning So I thought I would share a few photos. I won't be around to visit everyone or possibly link up til tomorrow morning after everyone heads home.

   Hubs and his friend went on a long river trip with his new boat and they totally enjoyed themselves-I have not seen my husband soooo happy in a long time. His friend is so good too with helping him in and out of the boat. He broke a bone in his knee area about a month ago that has really added to his pain and now difficult to walk now too--nothing stops my husband though if he can manage it.

  I did not go along but they both took some gorgeous photos that I thought I would share.

These photos should enlarge further just click on them.
They started the trip very early in the morning and got out of the water just before dark so was a long day-but the weather was perfect too. This area of the river had not yet been cleared of large trees that had fallen in. So his friend needed to get out of the boat and guide it over the logs-fun  at least they said so haha

For the drink I am sharing today-this was the "hit" of the party-after supper we would sit around and talk and those that were drinking a little bit loved this the best. I should have grabbed two bottles-one can really taste the apple and then the cinnamon This is very very smooth and is low in alcohol only around 35%

Happy T Day everyone

what beautiful scenery. It is heaven to be on the water, and am so glad your hubby enjoyed it so and the weather cooperated. Don't know how well I'd handle that cider- lo alc. content you say but I'm used to like 12-13% - an amateur:) Happy T day!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I am SO sorry Kathy. I didn't see your request for me to link you until right now. To be honest, I forgot all about TSFT because I've been so busy all day. Had I not seen your request, I wouldn't have even thought about T. Again, my apologies.

The river trip brings back lots of memories along rivers like that in southern MO. and northern AR. What fabulous photos and really beautiful, sunny weather. The cliff especially reminded me of canoe or rafting trips I've taken.

Sounds like the alcoholic drink was a hit, but I will stick with coffee, thanks. At least it sounds good.

Thanks for sharing your husband's canoe trip and your Kentucky Cider with us for T this nearly Tuesday.

Thanks for sharing the photos, that looks like a place where I would love to be. Glad you had fun with your guests. That cider looks good, perhaps a bit strong. I used to drink cider in England, but I haven't seen it much over here. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

The river trip photos are beautiful. It looks so peaceful and calm on the river. Your husband must have had a lovely day out.
It does sound a perfect drink to sip while talking at the end of the day.
Happy T day wishes.

I would love to paddle down that river too. It is beautiful. I would have wanted to go along also. Hope Der Camp has been fun this year. You were writing about it for quite some time and it is almost over. :) Happy T day. Hugs-Erika

Wow, I can see why your hubby is enjoying his fishing trips on his new boat, the scenery is breathtaking! It must be so peaceful and relaxing to be surrounded by such beauty while your fishing 😁. That Kentucky Cider sounds delicious and is definitely a taste of autumn with the cinnamon and apples - yum! Wishing you a Happy T Day! J 😊

Beautiful place to get out into nature. I've never tried that particular blend. We tend to buy a bottle of Revel Stoke Pecan Whiskey about this time of year. Super yummy and warms the tummy. :)
Happy T day!

Great photos. The river looks so peaceful and beautiful at each turn. I've never had Kentucky Cider. Would make a delicious additon to Thanksgiving dinner. Will have to see if I can find it up here. Happy T Day

What gorgeous river pictures. I do love the water. Never had Kentucky Cider but it sounds like the perfect thing to warm up with after a day out in nature.

Beautiful photos, it looks so peaceful! The Kentucky cider would be tempting, although I am guessing a high sugar content! Happy T Day! Chrisx

You have some beautiful country around you, Kathy. I wouldn't mind taking a day trip along that river myself. But I wouldn't be the one hauling the boat over fallen trees!

Deer camp sounds like it has been fun. But I don't understand the "deer" part? Do you hunt or look for deer?

Anyway, happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen
