Our Memorial Day weekend didn't quite start out as we had planned... on Thursday we headed out to the Davidson River Campground to get a camping site, and to spend our weekend relaxing on the river. Well, when we arrived, it was full. All 164 "first come- first serve" sites had been taken, which NEVER happens on Thursday, always early on fridays... We didn't let this phase us though, and drove over to North Mills River Campground, but it was the same, no vacancy. We decided to try Lake Powhatan, but again, they were full!
We spent 4.5 hours in the car looking for a site, to no avail.
But we didn't let that phase us. The kids pitched tents in the back yard, we lit up the fire pit, and we had "campfire stew" (foil packets filled with veggies and meat, cooked over the coals of the fire). Since then, we have filled the weekend with friends, fun, and festivities!
Yesterday we went to the Cradle of Forestry, and hung out with friends. Here is a sequence of shots of Rory jumping from a 12-15ft rock on the Davidson River, he did it once, but refused the second and third times he climbed up, apparently it scared him a little! LOL!
And here is a random of Evie from the shore while we watched big brother.
