Oscar Scherer State Park
This morning before breakfast, Carrie and I walk up to the Nature Center to see if anything has changed. This requires that we cross the bridge over South Creek. That’s the one thing we did not manage to do while she was here, kayak South Creek. The park rents kayaks so it would have been very easy but we were just so busy.
After breakfast we are off again up Route 75 for the 3rd time this week. We cross the Skyline Bridge and I get some pictures of it in the daylight. I think if we have to have bridges, they should be pretty and this one is.
As we come down off the bridge we see what could be Carrie’s plane coming in for a landing to pick her up and whisk her back to Baltimore.
Because we’ve stayed until the last minute at Winnona, Carrie is just an hour early and we drop her off at the departing doors so she can get quickly to the security line. Her Dad helps with her suitcase. She carries everything on. All the better to avoid lost bags.
And there she goes………………..
We won’t see her again until the festivities for her wedding to Matthew in May of 2015.
When she was a very little girl, just about two, we have a video of her one morning and when David asked her what she wanted to tell her Mama she said in her sweet little toddler voice,
”I miss you when you go.”
So now, whenever we part we say,
We miss you when you go Carrie!
