So....the girls and I have been traveling again.
Ohio was interesting as we passed through--an extra
1 1/2-2 hour detour, while interesting, wasn't exactly
a welcome diversion.
We were still in West Virginia at 8:00 P.M. when we
were expected at our friends' house.
One of the under mountain tunnels we passed through
In the end, we arrived and got to watch our friend
fulfill an order from her business Fastenation Studio.
Here she is working with the tiny pieces of a caterpillar.
It takes some special tools to pick up the clay
without ruining the shape she has just made.
Leaf buttons done...three caterpillars to go :)
After a nice visit, we were off early in the morning
While Emily was getting some additional flute
teacher training, Kristin and I headed to
We enjoyed Fort Watauga...
...and the Sycamore Shoals
...on the Watauga River.
It was a one mile trail walk. Though thunderstorms
had been predicted, we were blessed with
temperatures in the 80's and sun:)
