They say the third time is a charm. And I guess it was. After two less than great starts at camping, we tried again this last week.
We arrived late at camp in Round Springs and had a late dinner. Followed by a visit from a skunk.
Daughter was amazing when told to hold real still and not move, or scream, even with the skunk checking out the bottom of her chair, while she was still in it. Her face was a mix of fear and knowing.
But she held it all together and the skunk left.
That night it was, 'Let's go home!'. By morning it was, 'I hope we see more skunks."
The morning showed skunk tracks all over our car. Having gotten up in the night, I know at least four visited us.
It stayed for a very long time.
Not being one who loves bugs, I find it interesting that, now, trying to help daughter get over her fear of bugs, I am becoming quite interested in learning what they are.

Night had been cool and morning wonderful.
The spring state. And also amazing is how many are in southern Missouri.

Next we ventured over to one of wife's favorite places, 'Rocky Falls'
While dining a group of really nice motorcycles and a beautiful old car pulled into the lot.
Guess which is our car.
Great watercrest and swimming, and

wall will do.
It takes a little more effort to get to and is quite remote but it is fantastic.
Hunt around because there are two springs in this spot.
Sampling grape juice at St. James winery on the way home.
Yes, it really was just juice. Yea, I know, she looks to happy for just juice, but it was.
A great couple of days camping.
