Just up the road from us is Seven Lakes State Park, we’ve been looking at it for a while and finally booked it up last Tuesday as the weekend weather forecast changed from rain to sun.  And by “just up the road” I mean only 44 miles, so just over an hour after leaving home on Friday afternoon we were sitting in our camp spot all set up drinking hot tea, knitting (well, I was knitting!) and watching two beautiful and colourful balloons ascend into the cool of the early evening.
