Mini-Vacation Update: Watson Mill Bridge State Park

After my morning meeting yesterday, we headed over to Watson Mill Bridge State Park. It's only a few miles from Ryan's house and was quite the treat. The leaves are just barely starting to change here, so we didn't see quite the color we wanted to (another post tomorrow with more color). Ryan loaded his dogs up in the truck and we piled in and off we went.

It's the longest covered bridge in Georgia and it's a very scenic spot. It was cold yesterday - only got to about 50 because of the clouds - but everyone had a great time. This is the bridge. It's 200-something feet long. We drove and walked across it.

The view from the bridge was pretty amazing. It used be an old mill and has been dammed up. It's got these cool rock formations that are sort of underwater, but not really.

We walked way out on the formations. John and Kaity are waving at me here. For most of this weekend, she has hitched a ride on either Daddy's or Mr. Ryan's shoulders. What a mooch.

Mr. Ryan was in charge of Will while walking in the river. My balance isn't great and Will really wanted to explore. Dally, Ryan's dog, sticks pretty close to him.

I managed not to really have to help anyone climb.

John, Ryan, Will and Kaity - they were pretty chilly here.

I made a bunch of these hats last year for Christmas. Kaity's was the only one that actually fit. She's worn it most of the weekend. I think I'm going to have to try making myself one. It was very warm, soft, and comfy.

This is a great picture of Will. Normally, he smiles funny, makes faces, or looks away. I actually got a really nice one this time.

And, finally a family photo. We've really enjoyed our stay here. We miss seeing Ryan regularly and he lives in a beautiful spot. I'd like to visit more often in different seasons.

THAT's what the hat is supposed to look like. I like it. i'm rather sad mine was made to fit a gorilla's head.

Will looks a lot like John in that picture.

Hope you are having fun, I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures!

Thanks. Maybe you just look like you have a gorilla head. That's why I made it so big. I'll start on a new one and see if I can't get it right this time.

Ah, sisters. :)

That's a great photo of Will!
