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….

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!😳😂

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
