Camping by Lake Jocassee

What could be better in the middle of a lovely fall season than a camping trip?

A few weekends ago, that is just what we did, along with several friends of ours. This tradition started nearly 26 years ago, with the dear couples pictured above plus one more, and since then the group has grown by leaps and bounds… life has changed… but we still try to get together for this annual trip.

The choice for this year’s event was Lake Jocassee in South Carolina. What a perfect place to enjoy the wonders of our Creator!

Though she certainly doesn't win awards for photogenticity (YET, I might add -- we're working on it :)), our lovely German Princess was a delight to have along for the trip.IMG_1851

Our handsome leader...What ever would we do without his humor and light-heartedness?!

Whether hiking, running, fishing, or fellowshipping around the campfire until midnight, the Lord gave us a safe and tremendously enjoyable weekend. Looking forward to next year!

From the orginal five couples, there are twenty-six children, sixteen of which are pictured here (plus an extra) in age order.

    What a fun post! I love all the pictures – you got some great ones. I’m very curious, though – did you find out what kind of a plant had those beautiful berries on it?

    Glad y’all had a fun time together! The nature pictures are beautiful! The younger ones have really grown since we last saw y’all. Side note to the picture of Mr. Neely, tell him that I miss his teasing. 😉
