Travel: Wilkes T. Thraser Bridge over Chickamauga Lake



2015-07-29 - Chattanooga, TN - Photo by Pen. When you just don't have time to sit and take in the scenery on I-75 northbound, Highway 153 provides a beautiful shortcut out of Chattanooga to get to the much more efficient Hwy 127. The route is not only quite a few miles shorter to Columbia, but seems to be allowing a much higher average speed lately, despite the scenic twists and turns around Static, KY.

Carol Perkins: The Annual Perkins Beach Party

The meet up in Panama City, FL was an equal drive from Edmonton, the capital of Metcalfe County, and their Texas kin. But an 80 mile 'shortcut' by Carol & Guy, through Foley, AL. to experience the two-hand catch of cathead sized throwed rolls, started a string of circumstances which were fodder for travel experiences that can only happen to Carol Sullivan Perkins.

By Carol Perkins

Each year our family gathers at a beach house on the Gulf. For two years we have gone to Rosemary Beach near Panama City Beach, Florida. Five of us coming from the North turned a nine hour drive into a two day event. Jon's family, coming from Texas, drove straight through.

Even though we left a day earlier, we arrived only one hour ahead of them on Saturday. The reason for that was that on Saturday instead of heading for the house, which was only a three hour drive, we detoured through Foley, Alabama for the famous home of the "throwed rolls" at Lambert's Cafe. (one of three locations, if you're confused. The other two are the original in Sikeston and Ozark MO - CM)
