Unicoi State Park, Helen Georgia
Camping and Fireside Dinners
Camping turned out to be a great way for all
of us to gather together. The park is beautifull and the peace and quiet
away from the distractions of electromics gave families the chance to connect
with others and reconnect with each other.
Four of us had primitive tent campsites in the same
area. Others were scattered around the park in upgraded sites, campers
and cottages. Each evening all gathered around the campfire and we cooked
communal dinners, toasted marshmallows, and simply got to know one another.
It is amazing that most of us had never met in person before yet we knew
each others hearts from communicating through GrandsPlace.
