Oct 13 th, Elijah Clark State Park… part two

As I was walking around his home place, I wondered what he looked like,also what kind of man he really was. According to the encyclopedia,he had a very strong,driven personality. He was a poor,illiterate frontiersman who married Hannah Herrington. It seems from reading that he had a real fondness for fighting, one of the wars that he fought in was the Revolutionary war.

Here are pictures of  the old home place…


  
  
I love the stone chimney and the shutters…look how they dovetailed the logs !

  
Here were some signs that were interesting.. the museum is open to public during a set time,which I missed.




And that, my friends ,is a short insight of Elijah Clark. The park is a lovely place to visit!


Have a great day! Deb

Oct. 9th… Elijah Clark State Park.. part 1

Lovely weather has come to Ga. ..well that is if you don’t think about Hurricane Matthew that just blew though for a few days. We as a family decided once again to go camping before winter came . 

Elijah Clark State Park is not far for us to go,it is just north of us about 1 1/2 hrs drive. It is a beautiful place  with Lake Strom Thurmond flowing though it. 


We enjoyed watching the boat go up and down the lake,hubby and girls enjoyed getting in the lake,I enjoyed feeding the Canadian geese.

 Leona getting some sun on those legs.:)



How does one fry a egg over a fire ,when there’s no frying pan..


.. use a long handle ladle spoon with some bacon grease in. Works great!!

One morning Leona and l went for a long walk,there was nice little trails to go on.


We saw lots of squirrels,even a walking stick bug who was crossing the road.


Neat tree roots formations 


Just nature

  

Canadian geese were so beautiful swimming ,


Goose with an attitude..


A curious goose …






Look closely and you can see fall coming to Ga.

We also had a coon visit us during the night, the coon must of been Goldilocks for it was trying out our chairs! It also eat all the Carmel dip that we had along with apples that evening while sitting around the fire. We forgot to take it in.


Part two …next post… that will be on Mr Clark.
