Summertime Fun

July 8th update:
We went with the neighbors to Table Rock, not too far from home. As you can see below, the scenery was spectacular. We had a picnic on the rock, stayed for sunset, and hiked back to the truck by flashlight. It was too much fun!

The rhododendron are starting to bloom. This one was on the trail to Table Rock.

July 15th update:
July 9th was Mel's birthday, so John treated her to a round of golf at Canaan Valley Resort. It's a wonderful golf course! One that you would enjoy playing if you came to visit.

We were all smiles at the end of the round. Mel shot her age, which we are not telling.

August 5th update:
We have taken up bicycling in order to combat the effects of enjoying good food and drink. Recently we took our first off-road ride + hike to a place of incredible beauty. Here are a few photos of the lower end of Canaan Valley.
