Ah, to only experience the Life of Riley! I would love to find a nice, relaxing waterfall. Then find a big rock, sit down and just relax and enjoy. It is funny, when we start to get older we appreciate the smaller/simpler things in life.
My parents loved to travel. It seemed like we were on the road constantly. My father was a Riverboat Captain for a towing company. He would work thirty days on, thirty days off. Momma would give him about a week to relax when he got come and then we were on the road. I thought of those many road trips when I saw this picture. Unfortunately around here, we have no waterfalls liked pictured. But my mother had always wanted to see Cumberland Falls. So on one of our road trips, we went to the Falls. We had a big camping trailer and I remember the spot we found to camp at. Daddy had to back the trailer in. Momma got out to tell him when to stop. I didn’t think anything about it, I stayed in the truck. When we finally stopped, I got out and looked around. I went running for the back-end of the trailer, Momma screamed, “Stop! There is a sheer drop off!” Well being a kid, I didn’t really believe her (you know how kids are, lol!) So I creeped up to the back and sure enough there was a very sheer drop off. After seeing that I wasn’t really sure I wanted to sleep in the camper that night. Anyway the next day, we went over to the Falls. And you talking about breath-taking, they were beautiful. What a wonderful treasure of Mother Earth they were. I had never seen anything like it and to this day I still haven’t. What memories! Only to be a child again, lol!
Anyway on to the magickal part of the day……..
