- Wedding: April 2009
We are not doing the typical honeymoon .We want more of an outdoorsy type minimoon . I dont want to be to far from the kids or gone for too long . What we have come up with is a camping trip in the foothills of the NC mountains .We will be staying 3 to 4 days in a tent at a campground that offers a good sized swimming pool (although I’m not sure it will be warm enough in mid April in the foothills of the NC mountains to swim but hey its there if we need it ),hiking trails , fishing,volley ball courts,horseshoe pits, and berry picking .While there we are going gem hunting at a local gem mine where we can go creekin’, sluicin’ and diggin’ for quartz,sapphires, emeralds, and rubies! We will also check out an authentic western town, complete with dirt roads, saddle shops, a trading post, and rodeo arena. There are no cars allowed, so you must ride a horse (rentals available) or walk. We will probably check out the local historical mansion and cultural arts center as well as take in some motor cross racing.All in all I think it will be a funfilled few days all to ourselves.
