Picnic on the Shore of Gihon Springs Creek

Picnic by the creek.

Hi Readers! I promised that I’d dig up some pictures of the creek, and here they are.

The pictures of Dad, baby Ben, and me. Mom is the photographer. We’re on the sun-speckled shore of Gihon Springs Creek, having a picnic. Ben is about 6 months old, and I’m about two and a half.

I’m ready to take on the water, as seen in the picture. I still wear my long hair in a pony-tail 99.9% of the time. And I’m still always ready for a swim.


As I’ve mentioned before, the beautiful creek ran through our pasture and then emptied into the Tom Bigbee River, about seven miles away near old lock number two.

Still does, actually.

I just traced it on Google maps. In satellite view, I can even find white sandy beaches along the shore.
