Hi Everyone! I am behind on posting some of the adventures Scott and I have gone on over the last few weeks. A few weeks ago we went back down to Swan Lake in Sumter, SC. It is about 40 minutes from my house. We had a wonderful time and the swans were building nests and one black swan was sitting on a nest!

|This is a black necked swan. I had never seen one like this. So pretty!|
Two weeks ago and then last week we went up to Scott's property. He has 89 acres up near the NC/VA border. We both love it up there, it is just so pretty. The area is so beautiful and you can see Pilot Mountain on the way up-it is so impressive. Next time I will have to see if I can take a picture while Scott is driving.
|A brook runs through the property. It sounds wonderful!|
|These daffodils are blooming near an old cabin foundation on the property.|
|We took a walk down to another brook on the property. There was a spring fed little pond. We didn't realize it was heart shaped until we looked at the photos later!|
|The locals said this is an Indian mound. We aren't sure of this. There are 4 of them on the property.|
|Old cabin foundation.|
|This is a path that has been cut on the property (one of many). It was such a gorgeous day!|
|Lots of rocks, lichen and moss.|
|Scott found this turtle shell by the brook. So cool!|
|This part of the woods up there has alot of ground pine. It looks like a green blanket.|
On another note, the weather here had been warm (in the high 70's). It got alot of the flowers waking up around here.

Well that is probably enough for today. I have to get back to packing. Next Sunday, the 26th is my move date into the apartment. Everyone have a lovely weekend!
