A Little Vacation
We started our week by tearing out a bathroom in our upstairs. We plan on putting in a new shower, floor etc...
Then, about mid-week, my mother came and stayed with our kids while we went on a trip to Southern Ohio to see the Hocking Hills area. We satyed in a really neat little cabin in the woods. Grandma got the kids off to school, fed them their meals, and tucked them in bed at night so Mom & Dad could play in the park. :~)
I really like being at the bottom of these huge caves and rock formations.
There are so many picturesque scenes that take your breath away. These photos don't do it justice.
Whenever we start climbing, I don't like it as much. The exercise is great, but ... well, you can't see it in the photo, (actualy, you probably can't even tell how high we are) but I am almost in tears in that picture because I don't like heights. Better put: I am terrified of heights! John doesn't seem to mind them at all.
Here he sits at the top of one of the little waterfalls, while I cower behind my camera. I begged him to stay 5 feet away from the edge of the cliffs (there were so many cliffs!) but he fearlessly trotted along the edge of catastrophe while I stood back, biting my fingernails.
This is the kind of slope I like - nice and gradual, even with steps provided! (Does anybody else have the recurring nightmare of falling off a cliff?)
It was all so very beautiful, and except a few moments of fear, I really did enjoy the park.
It took us three hours to drive there. Some people probably can't drive three hours in their own country without crossing a border.
He hideth my soul.
Don't let the tough look fool you.
Our cabin was within a mile from the main attractions. There were other places to see within a 30 minute drive. We drove to each one. Each evening we returned to the hot tub on the deck of the cabin and enjoyed the scenery. It was such a nice getaway. I have never felt so privileged. We thanked the Lord for our time together. Now - back to reality!
