Sept.12….a lovely camping weekend

To go on a long weekend of camping was what our special needs girl wanted to do for her 19th birthday. We were all delighted to do just that for her. 

So off to George Smith state park in Twin City which is only 35 minutes from where we live.

It was a laid back,fun weekend with lots of food done over the fire outside, hot dogs,steaks,and eggs with sides of potato salad,watermelon,baked beans,even grapes ,fresh plums ,donuts and bananas for breakfast sides.

Some highlights…. 

Walking Snuggles withLeona.. 


 Leona Canoeing with Dad and big brother Russell

Even I tried my hand at canoeing,Russ working his kayak paddle way better then I was. He was good at moving though all the trees …. Me? I just kept to the more open spaces. I only had to push myself away from a tree one time!πŸ˜³πŸ˜‚

Daughter LouAnn and Dad having a good time together 

And special quiet moments of nature..

It was really hard trying to catch the sun on all the spider webs in the swamp where it was a perfect skeeter breeding area.the spiders were well fed!!

Lovely trails


Homes for birds

A home for the squirrels 

Cypress knees

And just beauty that soaks into the soul..

And the next blog will be on the museum that was on the grounds…

    Wow thats real camping, looks like you all had a great time, not sure about the spiders though and the canoeing……well lets just say I think you were very brave πŸ™‚ Lovely photos and some of those trees are a really interesting shape, especially the trees growing out of the water. So different from here, lovely visit πŸ™‚

      Well, not so brave .. The spiders were all too fat to move..πŸ˜„ and I love the water,and the alligators were no where to be seen. I also love those trees in the water.
