Join us aloft for a tranquil night in the canopy as you lay in your "tree-boat," viewing stars glimmering like diamonds in the sky. A treetop bivouac camp will be established in our secluded climbing tree for an overnight experience. Participants should bring dinner, breakfast and a sleeping bag. Register in advance. $125 plus $5 parking.
Richard and I went on a hike on the Rockdale River Trail this week. (I did a post about it before on Feb. 24th.)
There is a magnificent old oak tree that we saw there that had a ring of Port-a-Potties all around it. We thought this was odd, but now we know, it is the tree that they use for the "Zzz's in the Trees" program. (See the description above from the Panola Park website.) http://gastateparks.org/info/panolamt/
You are expected to sleep in a hammock and "wake up with the birds and see the sun rise majestically through the leaves". I'm sorry, isn't that a lot like camping?
With beauty like this, do we really need a gimmick?
I must tell you about a wonderful GIVEAWAY! Meike's Mum has written a guest post and she will have some of her lovely handmade knitted socks as a giveaway! Go to that link above (it will take you straight to her blog, it is the post for April 27th.) and see if you don't agree that Meike's Mum needs to sell her socks on Etsy, they need to be enjoyed by the world! They are so beautiful!
UPDATE: I won these socks!!! Also, if you go to Meike's blog, there should be a link to the Etsy shop where her Mum now offers her handknitted socks for sale. I can tell you that they are beautiful and oh so comfortable!!
