Today we headed to Stone Mountain, where Mar had decided she wanted to spend her birthday. We got there earlier than planned. The campground was so beautiful. Our campsite was perfect. We were parked on the lake where you could see the mountain through the trees. We decided to put on our walking shoes and go to the park. We took the water taxi to get to the park. While waiting for the water taxi, we fed the ducks and skipped rocks on the water.
When we got to the park, we went directly to the sky ride. Which was a little scary, ok more than a little scary. But we made it to the top of the mountain alive. Walking on the mountain was pretty amazing and the view was breathtaking. Then we took the sky ride back down and went on the train ride. This was very fun for Bernie because her dad worked on the railroad in Indiana. The train took us around the mountain telling us the story of the railroad and Stone Mountain.
When it was time to head back to the campground we went to catch the water taxi. As we approached we saw the water taxi had just left . So we had about 20-30 minutes to wait. There were some fellas there trying to fish. They offered to teach Bernie how to fish and let her take a fishing pole and try to catch something. No luck today. But she had fun.
