Mountains in July

Last weekend it was back to our mountain place, this time with son Bryson and our two grands. The weather was beautiful and sunny all weekend after a rainy trip up on Thursday night.

On Friday morning, we went to visit an acquaintance who has a summer home on a bend of the New River. There is an old mill on the property that has not been a working mill since 1977. I love the weathered planks that are set at a 45 degree angle.

We ate lunch with my father and two brothers Chris and John in Boone after that. They have a great Applebee's, and we all enjoyed our lunch and visit. The kids arrived that night, and we had a world of fun fishing, riding the Gator to the top of the mountain, floating in the creek, and playing on the Slip and Slide.
Old Dog Maggy made the trip to the top of the mountain again several times.

We had a lovely mountain sunset and a great time. Life is good!
