The cabin had no tv so we did lots of hiking, playing in streams and exploring in the area. On our hikes it was so beautiful seeing the mountain laurel in bloom. I can still remember the woodsy smells of nature.
We also enjoyed a big trip into Asheville to enjoy the Craft Fair at the civic center. It was always the highlight of the trip to watch furniture makers, blacksmiths, fiddle players, quilters, potters, etc., showcase their wares and put on demonstrations.
Then at night we would sit outside and listen to nature's summer symphony and watch the light show as the fireflies circled around us. It was perfect.
Life is a bit more stressful now and two week vacations don't come often, but I delight in being able to spend the evening on my front porch, watching the fireflies.
I hope that wherever you live, you have fireflies too.
P.S. Just noticed that someone from Wewahitcka was visiting my blog page. My mom's from Port St. Joe! I love blogging! It's like going places without ever leaving your chair!!!
