After going to the Visitor Center, walking to Upper and Lower McKinney Falls, and going grocery shopping, we were in mellow vacation mode.

At the Visitor Center, we saw man-made chimney swift towers. Chimney swifts historical natural nests used to be hollow old-growth trees. However, since most old-growth trees were logged years ago, the swifts adapted to man-made structures. The towers are for birds to roost and nest in.

|We can't wait to go swimming!|
|Interesting potholes in the rock.|
Bob finished reading "The Madoff Chronicles," by Brian Ross which he enjoyed. (Thank you Mona Liza of The Lowe's Travel Adventures!) I've been catching up on blogs because I'm way behind reading them.
After Bob finished the book, we started a campfire so we could make s'mores. It has been a very long time since we've had a campfire. The s'mores were yummy. When we finished those, I also had a turkey hot dog because I really wanted a campfire-cooked hot dog. So tasty.

|Just a gooey, melted marshmallow.|
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Safe travels from Travel Bug and Bob. Over and out.
