Fay and god daughter Amanda. I can’t believe it’s been a couple weeks since the Nelson family came to visit. What can you do in SC in less than a week?
Amanda and her sister April flew in just before noon on Tuesday. We got them settled in at our house and then drove them up to Caeasars Head Park and Pretty Place. The elevation is 3200 ft. It was 95 when we left our house and 65 when we got to Pretty Place. We hit a storm at Caesars Head and saw some pretty incredible clouds come and go. The girls slept on the way back to the house and we had a picnic dinner and long visit that night. It is so great to have them here.
Wednesday we went to Hollywild Park/Zoo. It was really hot but we had a fantastic time. You can get really close to the animals. We saw the lion that was the inspiration for the lion in Lion King and tossed chicken to the lion, bengal tigers and white tigers. The safari ride in the open bus was the hit of the trip.Had lunch at a great little sushie restaurant and made it home just in time for Amanda’s brother Jeremy and his wife Megan to arrive from Orlando and her aunt Debby and cousins Abby and Carly to drive in from MN. Everyone is staying here. Had a picnic dinner and talked until late on the screened porch and watched a beautiful full moon.
