With the relentless heat we've been experiencing in NC this month, we decided that an appropriate way to celebrate the 4th of July would be wet. While I'm sure that the local pools will be nice and cool...and crowded, we decided to make an adventure of our quest for water. Because splashing through waterfalls sounds far superior to bumping into people at the public pool.
Aside from a some grumping from the littles about why it's not safe to rock climb soaking wet, we had a lovely 4th splashing about, floating sticks down the falls, discovering unique rocks, watching the wildlife and playing in the waterfalls of an amazing country. Happy 4th of July to my fellow Americans and happy Monday to everyone else!
