We finally made it back to Stacks to continue our Friday ritual. Of course I wasn’t spontaneous and I ordered the same exact thing as I usually do.
After breakfast, we headed to the Andrew Jackson State Park for a trail hike.
Before we headed to the the trails, we did some strength workouts on the ampetheatuer stage. I used to go there all the time to workout. It’s a gorgeous, secluded and tranquil place. It’s surrounded by woods and the perfect yoga spot.
There were funky looking mushrooms all over the trails. I’m not sure you can batter and fry these ones though!
We had the trails all to ourselves. It was kind of creepy to be honest, but I had my safety gadgets 😉
The park has several statues and a museum.
It’s a gorgeous place to go and have a picnic or just to get out for the heck of it.
But, of course…I’m into ghost and history, so I’m pretty sure this ground is surrounded with earthbound spirits from the Revolutionary War. There were several massacres here.
My camera zoomed into the little school that Andrew Jackson attended. I tried to pick up some orbs…
If you make an appointment with the staff at the park, they’ll give you a tour.
I couldn’t imagine how uncomfortable those desk were!
Here is a little more information on the school. If you right click and open the image in a new tab you can read it more clearly.
After our day out in the wild, we headed to a more modern spot…the mall! It’s scary when Emilee and I go to the mall. We spent at least three hours in there.
After the mall, I took Grumples to the vet. He’s been biting at his skin and had a little skin infections, so I had to pick up more meds for him. I swear dogs cost more than kids! Well Grumples does at least.
After the vet, I ran Grumples around the park and then got ready for the night!
Friday night, I went to a rivalry high school football game in Fort Mill. That was a lot of fun and they have an incredible band. Also, they had a girl kicker, Lexi Dressing. She was kick ass and I thought that was pretty inspiring. Last I heard, the Lions were looking for a new kicker…Get on it Caldwell.
After the football game, I met up with Emilee and headed out for the night! We ended up at Nan & Byron’s for the rest of the night. It’s an awesome little restaurant/bar with incredible food in Southend.
