Fairy Stone State Park.......

Happy Friday!!!  If you've not been camping this week (like us) then we hope you are on your way to a campground right now!  We started  our Thursday at Fairy Stone State Park by fixing a great sausage, egg, and bagel breakfast.  Then we just relaxed enjoying the morning.  About 11:00 am, we headed out to sight-see, get gasoline, a few supplies, and of course to hunt for fairy stones.  

I'll be sure to make a post telling you all about fairy stones some time in the future.  We spent a long, hot, sweaty, hour looking for fairy stones.  We found a few, and once we got back to the State Park we stopped by the display at the park and discovered what it was we were actually looking for.

Just as we got back to the campground, the bottom fell out of the sky and we had quite a storm.  After this was over, we all ate lunch and enjoying the cooler temperatures the rain had brought. 

Later in the afternoon, Trisha and Jackson went inside the pod for a nap.  Sharon and Rob went back to hunt for fairy stones once more.  They made quite a haul.  Now they have another project cleaning and polishing the stones.

Here are a few pictures from around the campground......

This last picture is from the Blue Ridge Parkway at The Saddle overlook......

Thanks for checking by today.  I'll be taking a few days off as the "Left" coast part of the family have flown over to the "Right" coast for a few days.  We are excited to see them, and we'll be back here next week.  Until then, stay safe out there....-R,T,&J
