Farmhouse Restaurant, Candy Store & Haunted Hayride.

Today was one of those days when we were on the go pretty much all day.  Mike, Leslie, John and I rode into downtown Branson to check the mail at the post office one more time before we leave on November 1st.  While downtown John remembered that on one of our previous visits we had eaten at the Farmhouse Restaurant so we all agreed to eat lunch there.  Everyone had the soup and salad bar except me.  I ordered the chicken tender lunch with mashed potatoes and green beans.  The restaurant was very busy but our wait wasn’t too long. 

After lunch we walked down the sidewalk looking in the stores and stopped in a the Old Fashioned Candy Store.  I saw candy in there that I had not seen since I was child.  Of course we all bought some.  It was too good to pass up.

This store was crammed full of every kind of candy you could possibly imagine.  With our candy purchases completed we  headed over to the West Branson area. 

We notice a scenic lookout so Mike pulled off for us to get pictures.


This is the view point of Lake Taney Como from the scenic lookout.











The City of Branson.


The City of Branson, again.


Flat Clayton came along for the ride today.  If you look just beyond Flat Clayton you can see the Table Rock Dam.


John snapped this picture while we were at the scenic lookout.   I thought it was a cool looking butterfly.

Tonight at the campground we attended the hamburger dinner then later went on the haunted hayride.  It wasn’t very scary but we had a good time.

We ended the night with a round of 10 Penny.  Tonight was my lucky night.  I won with a score of 195. 

Laugh everyday.  Happy trails.  Stay safe.

  1. My dad taught me to fish in Lake Taneycomo (Brrrrr) and how to water ski on Table Rock Lake! I remember the "strip" in Branson when it was just the Baldknobbers and the Presley's! Wow has it changed. Glad you had a good time there. Blessings, Kathy
