Ohio

 If you get bored easily, or you don't feel like looking at a lot of random/ in no particular order/ misc. vacation pictures...  

Leave now.  

Our Cabin in the woods of Amish Country.
We saw a lot of these.
It rained for 2 days...  heavily.
And all kinds of unusual things were found growing in the woods. 
On our way home, we stopped at Coopers Rock.  

This is the view outside of our bedroom window.

We saw a lot of these little critters.
So pretty.  Do they sting?  I wasn't about to find out.


I had no idea that this was a snack of choice.  Ewwww.
I love chocolate just as much as the next guy...  but hold the bugs please.

What?!  Who would pay over 2 bucks for bbq larvets?  

"Are you looking at me?"
Coopers Rock - Breathtaking!

"You were gone for 3 days and all I got was a food and water holder?"
"Whatever"
Good to get away.
Gary, relaxing on the deck.

My favorite scenery.
Outside of our bedroom window we were able to capture a few birds feeding in the bird feeder.
"Are you looking at me?"
Continental breakfast was served free, every morning at the lodge.  We were served fruit, then hot oatmeal, coffee, orange juice, and (the best chocolate chip cupcake I'd ever eaten!) 

It rained for 2 of the days and nights...  a lot.  The wood burning fireplace helped somewhat with the dampness... But I ended up purchasing a heating pad and finally got a good nights sleep.  (Oh my aching bones!)  haha!!

Shopping in town was wonderful.  I love the craft and antique shops and they are plentiful in Berlin, Ohio.  We had a blast!!

I ate way too much good food.   I went off of my WW plan, and am feeling guilty now.  Bad Bobbi!

On the way back home we turned off at Coopers Rock, which is close to Morgantown, WV.  We'd always wondered what is Coopers Rock?  There is a beautiful overlook, plenty of woods and picturesque settings, picnic tables, a Concession store, and much more.  So glad we stopped.

Gracie was taken care of by Lindsey, Rissi, and Robby...  though she spent nights alone after  they would go home in the evening.  Upon returning home, we found that she had drug one of each of our bedroom slippers into the middle of the living room floor.   She was happy to see us return!  

I was unloading the car when I noticed hundreds of dragon flies swooping down into our yard at me, around me, and toward me.  I ran for cover and watched them from inside.  I thought the world was ending! LOL.  I found out later on facebook that I wasn't the only one who was terrorized by these dragonflies.  Eeek.  Same time and everything...   

Gary said they were probably migrating.

Ok.  I've bored you enough with my nothingness.  

Goodnight.
