Southern River

Submitted by Christi

My friend Libby owns a resort on the White River called Copper John’s Resort.  The resort is about 20 minutes away from my house. Libby has a lot of great opportunities, being right on the river, to get some great outdoor shots. Here are some of Libby’s pics for today’s Outdoor Wednesday.

Copper John’s Deck (I’m seeing a future tablescape here!):


This one is good enough for a postcard:


On top of Bull Shoals Dam overlooking the river and golf course:


What a beautiful place to live!

He cutteth out rivers among the rocks;
and his eye seeth every precious thing.
Job 28:10

Join Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday and check out the lagniappe. It is an addition to Debbie’s Crockpot Wednesday at Dining with Debbie.
