April 21 is a special day for Betsy and me. On April 21, 2001, we had our first ‘big’ date. On that day we went to Fall Creek Falls State Park here in Tennessee.
Our first date was a dinner date on March 29. We had a couple of other dates after that, but on April 21 we spent the entire date at Fall Creek Falls. We did a lot of talking and some hiking.
Fall Creek Falls State Park has five major waterfalls — those were the first waterfalls we saw together. As you might expect, this was the beginning of our waterfall ‘collection’.
The collage above has some pictures from that first date. The picture on the upper left is a picture I took of Betsy fairly early in the day along the lake near the park lodge. On the upper right is a picture of the two of us taken at the base of Cane Creek Cascade. The bottom row had Fall Creek Falls and Coon Creek falls on the left, and Piney Creek Falls on the right. In the picture of Betsy showing some leg was taken on the trail to the base of Fall Creek Falls.
Betsy and I have gotten back to Fall Creek Falls almost every April 21, and yesterday was no exception. As I said, April 21 is a very special day for us. What was the best part of the day? I got my first kiss that day.
