|Looking Glass Falls. Isn't it majestic? I especially love the massive rock overhanging it. God is such a masterful artist!|

That's when we stopped by the Ranger's Station, where we picked up some things in the gift stop to give to our friend Shilo whose wedding we'd be going to the next day (and who is an intense nature lover and vegan, so this was an appropriate place to shop for her). Then we went back to the campsite and had dinner.
I wanted to head to the swimming hole again. She resisted, because water doesn't have the same draw for her as it does for me. But we'd brought a bandmintion/volleyball set we'd never set up and we packed it in the car, trying to start cleaning up, we decided to take the rackets and birdie to the water. I got in and she stood on the bank and we played. Neither of us are good, but it was funny and a few kids grabbed rackets and joined us. Then I took my racket to shore and swam some more. Lydia went tubing again, then went got and her guitar and perched on the bank and serenaded the swimmers. The draw water has for me, music has for her, so we were both quite happy. We stayed until the sun went down.
