Last night saw a brief, but powerful, storm roll through—no damage, just some wind and a little rain.
Following breakfast, Kay and I went to the pool, one of the largest “private” pools in the Branson area. The water was okay, just a tad on the cool side, but the sun felt really good. We drove to the Keeter Center for lunch. The Keeter Center is located on the campus of College of the Ozarks in Branson. College of the Ozarks is a very conservative liberal arts college, and all students are required to work 15 hours per week on campus as payment of their expenses—a great concept. The Keeter Center combines a restaurant and lodge, and students comprise the staff involved in all aspects of the hotel. After lunch, we drove to the US Army Corps of Engineers Indian Point campground, as it is close to Silver Dollar City and Table Rock Lake. We were a little disappointed inasmuch as the campground has a lot of development around it, and is a little too busy for our tastes.
The remainder of the afternoon was spent napping (Kay). Our dinner menu for the evening included baked ham, potato salad, baked beans, and rolls, with lots of great desserts. Unfortunately for me, the doctor last week gave me a very stern warning about the potential for diabetes and much needed weight loss—really getting my attention—so dessert is off the table, literally. We immensely enjoyed the after-dinner conversation and visit in our “circled-up” chairs near the pavilion.
