Salt Fork mini vacation...

Hi, there!

I am back from our mini vacation  from Salt Fork State Lodge in Ohio.  We haven't been to the lodge since 2006.  It's been way too long to visit this peaceful lovely area of Ohio.  The big highlight is seeing the deer that come right up to the lodge.  People do feed them, so they are used to coming up to the lodge. The above photo was taken while we were out hiking.  

As soon as we got to our rooms in the evening last Wednesday we saw the deer.  

You can see the happy smile on my face being back at Salt Fork!

This one looks like she is pregnant.

This one had a great time looking for food in the thick of the brush area.

I should have taken more photos.  They had a very nice pool area.  We enjoyed hiking,
kayaking, and swimming.  They cleaned the pool area every two hours and gave fresh 
towels.  Everyone wore masks and did the proper precautions.  The lodge wasn't very busy at all.  
We checked out the camping area in case we decide to get back into camping, which is a nice area, too. 
They had delicious food and excellent service!  We hope to visit the lodge again 
since we always have such a great time!

Needless to say, we had a busy week.  We visited our son, Jeremy on Saturday before coming home.
The next day, two of my sisters celebrated their birthday, so we had a get-together at my sister's house.
Below is a photo of the tropical theme party with Christina and Cecilia...

We laughed and ate and had a wonderful time together!

Well, that's all for now.  I hope all is well your way and that you have a 
wonderful week!  Sending warm hugs your way!  Take care!
