Falls Lake

On our last night of vacation, we camped at Falls Lake. It was perfect. When we were driving around, looking at the campsites, we saw a few other people, but once we were on our campsite, we didn't see or even hear anybody else. Plus we were right on the lake. I guess that's one of the perks of camping on a Monday night in September. :)
After setting up camp, I took Miah, Larkin, and Zahana on a walk around the lake just to see what we could see.

We saw wild muscadines and persimmons, pretty fall leaves, and tracks from a great blue heron, deer, and a raccoon.

Back at camp, Rohan was taking a little stroll himself, just enjoying the breeze.


Part of his hotdog bun fell off.



Miah and Larkin boiled some tiny freshwater mussels and tried them. "Not bad!" they said. Their faces tell a different story.

After supper, we had a dip in the lake.

Then another in the morning before heading home.


  1. Beautiful pictures..Hvae a great weekend.

  2. I recognize some of Rohan's expressions...they must be characteristic of children under 3. Michael makes those same faces! Glad you're back and glad you guys had a blast!

  3. Ha! I love the picture of Rohan taking a stroll! The NASA museum was really fun and took right at 4 hours to get there...closer than we thought and it was a fun day (just trying to "pitch" it to you for Larkin!)

  4. That's not a bad drive. I'll have to remember that.

  5. What a perfectly inspiring blog. I just love going through all of your posts. Looks like they had a wonderful camping trip.

    Have a lovely weekend.
