For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving. 1st Timothy 4:4
We truly did have a wonderful time in the mountains. I can see why Florida residents like to live in the mountains at least half of the year!
I can assure you that we ate and we ate well! Our first stop is to Kroger's to buy groceries and our menus are well thought out and planned ahead of time! We usually go out to eat a few times while there but for the most part we eat a big breakfast and supper. Of course you gotta have snacks along the way....right?
Snacks from the Bass Pro Shop...more on that later!
First night is always-------STEAK! We cook out a lot at home but nothing any better than grilling on a porch over looking the mountains!
Medium rare Sirloin steaks, baked potatoes with sour cream and butter, roasted peppers and snap peas!
I was flipping through this little book in the cabin and read about Metcalf Bottoms which so just happened to be about 1/2 mile from the cabin. Beautiful little river with lots of picnic tables, restrooms, fishing and more. And FREE!
I loved this picture. I do believe I will put a scripture on this and enlarge it for my home! Loved the serene look of the river.
If it had of been summer my grands would have had a ball in this river!
There was people along the river fly fishing and they were all women! Not that it shocked to me to see women fishing but found it funny that every single person we saw fishing was a woman! Well, somebody has to bring home the supper right? I snapped this picture as we crossed the bridge to go hike! YES I said HIKE!
This trail doesn't look like there is much to it but trust me! It was steep. It just kept going UP and UP and UP!
It was cold....but my man shed his jacket quick like!
I decided after a
little lot of huffing and puffing that there was no sense in us both gasping for breath so I decided to let him go on ahead and I just ZOOMED him in with my camera as he made it to the finish line! It takes WORK to snap those pictures!!!
hike walk I had I was ready to go back to the river and play!
On every single picnic table there was this sign....glad the bears was asleep!
The area that we actually stayed in was well known for it's bears. So much so that prior guests had pictures of two bears that had run through the cabin we stayed in! YIKES!
Now after all that exercising how about a cup of coffee?
May we all be mindful of our gratefulness to our Lord for the things that we take for granite daily. If not for Christ where would we be?
Tune in later when I might invite you to breakfast.........LOL!
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
