The past few days have been absolutely beautiful, warm with sunny days and cool, starlit nights. We spent seven nights at Blackwater River State Park, this visit, which we enjoyed very much. I think this is our fourth visit to this scenic state park.

In the morning we head out to our next destination and I hope the great weather comes along!

During these past seven days we found new places to hike, a few birds to photograph, some beautiful, swampy, river areas to admire, and I can’t forget our sighting of the Fox Squirrel.

If you enjoy staying in state parks that are quiet and peaceful; filled with the aroma of pine with a gorgeous scenic river for kayaking and nature trails for hiking, then this state park is worth a look.

They have been working on a few¬†renovations here at the park,¬†specifically the¬†pavilion on the river, which will be completed very soon. We can’t wait to see the improvements and to once again hike the trail along the¬†riverbank.¬†
