Saying goodbye. Our friends James and Elizabeth begin their 1 year trip around the US – follow them at https://flightofthecrowswing.com/
Sad day, my yard guests left… at least I will see them again in 5 days!
Deb ran over several pieces of metal… I finally gave up and got a new tire.
Happy Father’s Day. I started early with a bike ride, fixed a lawn mower, then James, Elizabeth and I headed to Morrow Mountain State Park for a hike and picnic before kayaking.
The summit road was closed, so we hiked from the bottom.
Along the way we met a couple walking their cat on a leash.
I can’t take James and Elizabeth somewhere that doesn’t have a waterfall…. Moccasin Creek Falls on Falls Reservoir
For those who know the paddle, the dam was releasing water and the spillway was sending water over the rock island… the water was faster than I have ever seen it. I really thought there was no way we were going to make it to the caves today, but Beth was determined. We tried the right side, Clay attacked the middle and finally Beth said we had to go up the left bank, portage over the rocks and then all we had to do was cross the river – sounds easy enough. I was sure I was going to be swimming again like the last time I tried to make it during a release, so no pictures, I put everything away.
After long effort over the rocks we made it!
Nobody was flipped and Beth got to paddle into the cave.
Speaking of helping friends. I come home from work to find the moochdockers living in my front yard had fixed the footer for my porch
Then we dropped 4 dead trees around the driveway – thanks James and Elizabeth!
Up early and back to the river

Way too busy today to take pictures, swim, nap, eat, repeat. But at least I have a picture as James and Elizabeth wake up!
House guests! Gotta love house guests that come and sleep in the yard!
Kodak, Sam and Alex at Checkers in Florence, SC.
This is how I sleep, Deb is short and has space between her feet and the end of the bed, the dog instead chooses to sleep at my feet, so I have no space!
