Camping out at Walton State Park was fun for T and a trio of friends who gathered for an overnighter. I stayed at home with the Girls, thinking of femminismo and her frequent campouts with Mister. If it's good enough for Oregon, it's good enough for Georgia!
Yes, I thought this is indeed the bridge supposedly filmed in the Streep-Eastwood movie and mentioned in the book, "The Bridges of Madison County". Below is a second shot of the same bridge. I can't believe I did not get a shot of how it looked inside. Talk about Shadow Shot Sunday -- Sarah would have had a field day! (Note: No, THAT bridge was in Madison County, Illinois -- not Madison County, Georgia.)
Fantastic log cabins. Tammy brought a quilt, draping it over the bannister to give Cabin 2 a homey look and feel.
Even the privy was a real building, complete with an old-fashioned tin roof and real amenities inside, including a working shower.
What was here, once upon a time? Or was someone's dream interrupted before its realization? I saw this on the way back to Athens yesterday, after dropping off T and enough food to feed an army. Alone in a field -- beautiful in the light,with what looked like a cairn! So, of course, I had to have a photo of it.
There were horse trails for local equestriennes as well as hiking and biking trails at Walton State Park; wildlife observation decks; fishing and general goofball fun. Goofball fun? Yeah, that's when grownups slide on their bums down the slick rocks to splash into the pools of water in the river.
Packing up in this last photo to get out of there. The quilt has already been carefully folded and stashed in a trunk for its journey home.
I myself will be staying in Cabin 3 hopefully soon -- or next January. THAT should be fun! Cold, though. Maybe I can borrow that quilt. And since it's only 15 miles from Athens -- perfect!
