Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

Today the girls arrive from Atlanta.  It's going to be a warm day, the steam is rising off the lake.

The sky is clear and the sun is rising.  I'm here to clean up the boathouse in preparation for their arrival this afternoon.

Linda, Vicky, Marilyn and Jordan arrived in time for margaritas and a swim.

First brave soul to jump into that cold water was Vicky.  Marilyn next?

Yep! There she goes!!

Vicky showing off her toned arms from rock climbing and caving.  Geez!

After a wild afternoon at the boathouse, we decided to treat ourselves to a nice dinner at the Tea House conveniently located just minutes from the boathouse.

The Tea House has been on the lake for over 60 years and is a large historic log cabin with several fireplaces inside, which unfortunately were not lit since it is still warm and people are dining on the terrace.

Me, Vicky and Linda at dinner minus Marilyn who wanted to take a nap after her swim!

We sat and talked for hours that night, and the next morning "the cook" was up and ready getting breakfast made for the girls, oh, and Jordan.  No dog can resist maple bacon even if it is wrapped around asparagus!

Cheese omelets to go with the bacon, oj, coffee, fruit completed our breakfast.

I suggested a hike, and to my surprise, everyone was ready to go.  Took them to the Palmetto Trail.  Leaves are now starting to change.

Sweet Jordan watching a hiker on the trail.  Asked the hiker if he saw any bear.  No, just lots of turkey, he replied and off he went.

Thank you to my friends who would make the drive all the way from Atlanta, sleep in a boathouse with a broken toilet, swim in freezing water, and make that drive all the way back again.  In the spring there will be another weekend, longer, and we will all go shopping in Asheville, and hopefully this time Carrie will be able to make it from Ohio.  Until then . . .
