A Day to Play

We had worked hard for weeks, so on David’s day off we went to Dill Falls. It’s on the other side of the mountain from our favorite falls, and David’s car was high enough that it didn’t scrape on rocks on the gravel mountain road. I was happy we could drive near and needed to walk only a part of a mile. We accepted when a young couple offered to take our photograph.

I thought I had hidden the cane.

I liked Lise’s selfie of us.

We are the ones who like lightning and thunder, so it was appropriate that there was thunder as we looked at the rushing water. A lovely roll happened as I took a video, but the camera could not capture the sound.

If the day had been hot, I would have loved to wade in the cold stream.

Without our knowing, Lise took a shot of David and me as we walked the trail back to the car. It’s not flattering, but it’s the way we navigate among roots and rocks. David is always very attentive, giving me a hand on rough patches. I don’t normally walk with a cane, but it did provide welcome support that day.

We went to one of our favorite restaurants โ€“ The Square Root in Brevard. While eating, David and I shared a Maclin Pat over something silly. I can’t think of a day that we didn’t laugh. Although I have been accused of stalking people with a camera, Lise took far more photos than I did. I will miss that.

Shells of boiled peanuts were left on my plate.

    1. A few months ago John commented on our posing for pictures. He said we were so conditioned to smile at the camera that all of us smiled as we stood on Utah Beach with his dad. Dr. Mehrling landed there in WWII and saw many soldiers dying. We were amused at his observation, because he was spot on.

  1. The falls and the sound and site of the running water is beautiful, and so enticing! I doubt I would have noticed the cane if you had not mentioned it–it looked a lot like a limb. ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. Maclin is my maiden name. My brother and I used to pat each other’s arms, cock our heads and grin when we were teasing each other. It was like making fun of ourselves when pretending to be sympathetic.


  2. All picture are so pretty. Nice photo shoot. You have so sweet smile. Very nice you walk with David’s support. The fall and the sound of the running water. Amazing place of mountain. I like. Always face n smiling family. ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. Waterfall, so lovely, and the sound of it, too! Great pics!
    Thunder and lightning – um, you heard about the deaths of the people in Washington DC who sheltered under a tree? ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Do be careful!


  4. I’m glad you finally got to the waterfall outing Anne – you all deserved it after all that organizing and items attended to the last few months. The waterfall pictures are as beautiful as usual, even nicer are the poses with family.
