I had such a wonderful time with my sister & some friends this weekend. The retreat was awesome, as always.
Poplar Lodge (the lodge we stayed in):
We had the lodge all to ourselves -- there were 14 of us. I didn't know some of the ladies until this weekend, but I have some new friends for life.
The back door of my room opened out onto a porch with a great view:
A view of the length of the porch:
My sister & I would sit on the porch in the mornings & read our Bibles, pray, do some journal writing, talk & drink coffee:
My sister, Jessie:
Some views from the dining hall:
Porch of the dining hall:
Jessie (sorry this pulled in incorrectly, I've tried to fix it & it's not cooperating):
We walked A LOT!! Most of the time we walked back & forth to & from the dining hall, which was probably close to a mile each way. My step count for Friday:
Yesterday was a beautiful day:
If you ever get an opportunity to go to Graves' Mountain Lodge in Syria, Virginia, I highly recommend it. The food is amazing & the view is even better!!
Blessings to you!!
