Camping~~~Part Two~ The Hike

Part Two~The Hike

As soon as we saw the cottage a sense of relief and calm came over us. It's not very big at all. in fact alot of the RVs that had spots nearby were bigger than the cottage. There is only one small bedroom...in it, it houses two sets of bunk beds with a tiny space just wide enough for one person to stand between them. ..But it was home for a week.





A few days later our awesome friends drove down in their camper to spend part of the week with us. A day later we took a beautiful hike...

Here are the three guys..Hubby's Army buddy and dearest friend M,  The Hubster and my son D







The water in this lake was so crystal clear, it made you want to drink it. Clouds kept threatening to pour but they gave us a break







Here I am wearing my Husband's sweat jacket...believe it or not it was COLD that day!








Our Friend picked a few posies for my daughter...honestly isn't this the sweetest picture?







We picked a few more flowers and found we disturbed a ladybug's siesta...
sorry L.B...ssshhh go back to sleep~







And what's camping without the annual sighting of snakes...UGH!








But no fear our awesome friends brought along their attack dog Kibbles









~This picture just made me think of a poem...

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures...Have a beautiful Tuesday!!!
                                                 Blessings, Joanne

    1. Yes! I liked this hike so much better than last year's..last year We hiked deep in the woods and climbed over fallen trees and I was a bit spooked when I saw damage that had been done by a bear's claws!

  5. Looks like a wonderful retreat. When I saw that last picture, before reading your comment under it, I thought of the same poem. Thanks for the lovely little getaway. I feel replenished.

    1. Hi Jo-Anne, It was cute, but how I wish it had just one more room! It gets a bit crowded.
