Over the Roads, Through the Woods & the Streams To Papa's Cabin We Go...


 Ah, the cabin...nothing fancy but away from it all... a little spot of heaven even with 4 adults and 2 children. We girls spent a few days up in Fair Play, SC with Papa (Frank) and did a little swimming, hiking and yep roaming the country side.














The Porch of the cabin and flowers there;
please wipe your feet!



Dorie saw her first waterfall (she was not impressed), we drove 3 hours round trip to see a country store and ended up in the mountains with a thunder storm rolling in... we quickly turned around and headed back down! Eating boiled peanuts and laughing over some of the things we saw.



Dorie & Althea cooling their feet in a cold mountain stream...



The upper falls.


Becki footing it back up the trail.

Oh course we grilled out and yes, oh yes there were S'mores... I remember my first S'more and Girl
Scout trips so long ago... and no matter how much time flies or how many I eat... there is nothing like that first bite of warm marshmallow and melted chocolate bar with crisp graham crackers....
