Hiking with oldest daughter – on the trail with Debby!

The grand daughters were in school – Maddy had to go to work –

So Sherry and I went with Debby to run some errands

and then to go on a hike!

A new trail had opened over Thanksgiving –

in Winchester Va. !

Debby Sherry Papa

Sherry and I did 2.20 miles with Debby –

and then she ran back the way we had just walked

we continued on and met here in the parking lot!

She runs every day!

She does start her day off with one cup of black coffee!

Debby is a QNMD with the Juice Plus Company

following in her mother’s footsteps

health and nutrition are a big part of her families lives!

The trail has many features such as this sundial which is not finished yet!
There are many sculptures along the way.

The trail itself is made of crushed limestone and very easy to walk on.

There are gradual hills and trees – shrubs – and open fields.

Many nature groups who are volunteers –

clear out under brush and fallen trees!

winding trail so as not to walk straight up the hill!
Sundial not completed yet!

We are going to bring the rest of the family back for a hike!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Another trail branches off – to be explored another time!

Papa,s World – Brook Green – Night of 1000 candles – near Pawley’s Island-S.C.

The night before we came back home to N.VA. – we drove 45 minutes South

Near Pawley’s Island S.C

to “BROOK GREEN”!

( and we will go back in warmer weather – to see it again in daylight!)

Huge Oak trees – with hanging lights – almost from the top!
Reflections in the water of lights!

The whole place – hundreds of acres – is dressed up in colored themes –

and over 1000 candles lit by hand!

Bronze statues are everywhere!

Some of the 1000 candles lit by hand!
Candles and lights – everywhere we went – a different theme – and colorful lights!
There were food trucks and a tent set up with drinks – hot chocolate – coffee and tea as well as water – soft drinks and beer!
So many different areas lit up – hard to capture them all!
You had to stay on the paths – and after dark – you could easily get lost in the maze of light!
Hanging moss lit up!
Paper lanterns lit in red and white colors!
Like fire flies in the sunset!
Sculptures with light reflecting on the water!

There must be a lot of volunteers to do all of this!

And – we only saw part of the park –

there also is a zoo here but was closed!
