Rose Hill {one hundred eighty five}

by Sopranosflight July. 04, 2011 1447 views

For the Fourth of July, we did not really do anything patriotic.

Heidi and I eventually woke up, and we drank coffee and looked at pictures on the internet for a while. Then we ate blueberry pancakes that her mother had made us and went to Rose Hill, a plantation nearby that was built in 1812. We thought it would be busy, since it's a patriotic holiday, but we were the only people who had been there all day, and the park ranger wrangled us into talking to him for 45 minutes and regaled us with stories of Frank the 9 foot snake who chases lawnmowers.

And then the park ranger left, and Heidi and I had the plantation to ourselves, and we took these pictures of her in a hoop skirt and pretended that we lived there.

We got in the car to come home, and almost immediately a horrible rain storm started, but we made it back to her house to find the power out. Luckily, her parents had already planned on cooking out.

The lights came on, and we took a walk and took pictures and got bitten by bugs, and now we are chilling and going to bed.

And I have not seen one firework.
