More Time With The “GRANDS” !!! – Wed, May 21 to Wed, May 28, 2014
OK, time to get back to BLOG catching up;o))
On Wed, May 21th, we headed to Falls Lake State Park just outside of Raleigh, NC.
With the Memorial Day Weekend heading our way, it was time to run away from the beach!!
Truth be known, I just waited too long to make reservations;o((
Getting sites at the South Carolina Beach State Parks means you need to plan 11 months out!!
When I checked sites at Falls Lake, our favorite sites, 17 & 18, were available.
I contacted Julie and she agreed to meet us there for 5 of our 7 day stay!!!
We arrived Wednesday afternoon, and found we had the campground to ourselves!!
We set up on Site 18.
Directly behind our site and down a short trail is...
THE ROCK, our favorite swimming hole!!
Thursday afternoon, Julie and the Grandkids pulled into Site 17 next door to us!!
Our quiet solitude would be short lived…
Yep, it went from “NOBODY HERE” to “NO EMPTY SITES” in the entire park:o((
Regardless, we managed to have a great time…
They even managed to do a little “Catching!!”
The weather was spectacular and swimming at “THE ROCK” was a blast!!
Emily and Samantha really enjoyed the PLAYGROUND!!
We cooked our dinners over an OPEN FIRE!!!
it was time to beat Grandpop at LADDERBALL:o))
The Grand Finale each day…
Julie and the children had to leave on Tuesday to head back to home;o((
But lucky us…
we had other kids hanging out in the area;o))
YEP, Our Pelicans, are visiting family in North Carolina and met us for a bike ride!!!
We met Dan & Tricia and Gin & Syl at the Upper Neuse River Greenway.
It is a beautiful trail that actually runs right behind Julie’s neighborhood.
However, this is our first time on the trail, but it won’t be our last!!
Thanks for a great ride…
always fun to spend time with Our Pelicans!!!
