Life on the Paint Rock

outside1_t.jpg (13784 bytes) Welcome to a pictorial tour of what used to be my back yard.  My name is Bill Anderson, and until recently I made my home in the Paint Rock River Valley near New Hope, Alabama.  swimmin1_t.jpg (9369 bytes)I wouldn't claim that life was perfect here, but I will say that it leaned a little in that direction.  My house sat on about three acres of land, with boatin4_t.jpg (12289 bytes)180' of riverfront access.  It was almost like living in a state park; the road was a cul-de-sac and other than my neighbors, about the only traffic I saw was people driving slowly and enjoying the scenery.  I wish you deck2_t.jpg (13069 bytes)could visit the valley, but if you can't drive by yourself, maybe you'll enjoy these pictures.  Just click on any of them to see related, larger photos I took during the 19 years I lived there.  party1_t.jpg (11473 bytes)I've grouped the pictures by subject: the house, swimmin', boatin' & fishin', sunnin' on the deck, partyin', and floodin'.  (Yes, almost every spring, the Paint Rock would remind us who was boss around there, and we got treated to a much better view of the water than we'dflood4_t.jpg (13922 bytes) have preferred.)   So there you are -- if you can't go to North Alabama in person, at least you can get a feel for the beauty of the place by visiting this website.  Enjoy!
