We Hate To See It End

I can’t even begin to tell you how much we have enjoyed our time at Defeated Creek. The weather has been a 10 (except for one night) the scenery also a 10 and definatley the campground a 10. But the main factor is the friends we have spent our time with.   Some we have known and others that we got to meet for the first time. Everyone blended well…. It has been a nice relaxing time spent chatting, laughing, playing cards, eating, and campfires.  We had a  few field trips, one an all girls day out, one for a scenic tour and lunch at a chinese restaurant, and one to the Cracker Barrel in Lebanon, where the first one opened.

When Kevin & I left Ma in 2000, we knew that fall in New England would be hard to give up.  That is our favorite time of year. Well we got a glimpse of what we have been missing while in Tn.

We can’t thank Lisa and Tony enough for all they did to make this all come together. We sure hope this will be an annual event.

And as always a beautiful end to another perfect day..

I miss the colors of autumn this year. Glad you got a reminder of what they are like.

What a great post!!! We had such a good time and it was very hard to leave this morning, but we look forward to seeing everyone again somewhere someday. Have a great time in FL, and hopefully we will see you guys this winter.
