Outdoor fun...

Monday, April 27, 2015

For our Anniversary a couple of weeks ago, we decided to stay home & do some sightseeing close to home rather than taking a vacation that required driving several hours to a getaway destination.

One of our trips was to Raven Rock State Park, just outside of Lillington, NC. It was a nice 2 hour drive to this beautiful park perfect for picnics & family walks. There were a couple of walking trails that following the creek & also went down to the river, very beautiful landscape, but we were hoping to see some wildlife, more that what we did. It was nice however seeing other couples & families out walking the trails together. Here are some pictures.....

Then on another day, we spent much of the day down at Kure Beach, NC & Ft Fisher, NC. There was a photography scavenger hunt contest going on for NC State Parks, so we decided to participate, we didn't win the contest but had so much fun & got in lots of walking. Here are some pictures from our fun at the beach.

I have to say this was one of my favorite staycations, no hurries or stress to get from place to place & having beautiful weather to enjoy nature. emoticon
