Deep Creek Get - A - Way

So last week, the family and I got away. A family in our congregation owns a cabin and wanted us to use it sometime. They been wanting us to use it the past 2yrs - so we took them up on the offer - and went last week.

We left Monday and returned Friday. We had lots of fun. Here is insight to what we did:

Monday Arrived.

Tuesday - We went to Sunnyside Wools

to see llama, sheep, goats. We had even went to visit Bear Creek Restaurant.

Wednesday - We went to the Discovery Station
and exploring the Deep Creek area including the Popcorn Factory, and some small stores in the area. As well as visited a Farmers' Market with Candyland (Over 700 types of Candy in the store which my kids loved)

That evening we went to the local Deep Creek Lake State Park for a Big Bonfire and Storytelling - with people dressed up as a cros, buffalo, deer and bear and telling stories.  We also hiked some. To an old mine.

Thursday was the Big day. We went to Swallow Falls


and later swam at Herrington Mano State park


On Friday we cleaned up and went to drive home. We did stop on the way home to visit Sideling Hill


all in all a good time to get away and enjoy Western Maryland. We didn't tell hardly anyone we went, we had a good time. Vacations and getaways are very rare nowadays. Make it simple - and just take time for you and your family.
