Stone Ledge + Anchor Park

At the beginning of the summer we traveled to Spartanburg, SC, to see what we could get into. Greenville is a very short drive from the town of Spartanburg, but we never go. I promise that’s going to change. We loved everything about it.

IMG_4547Preston was with us and he’s forever begging to play at a park, so today I’m sharing two pretty cool parks we found. Stone Ledge was the first.

IMG_4559On the way home, we drove the back roads to Anchor Park on Lake Bowen. This one ranks high on my list for several reasons. Number one, there’s lots of shade. Number two, the view is spectacular.

IMG_4568It ended up raining while we were there. Thankfully, we had our rain coats with us, so we continued to play. It’s not like we’d melt!

IMG_4566Perfect picnic spot, right?

Both Anchor Park and Stone Ledge are worth the drive. Sometimes it’s nice to just have a change of scenery.

I apologize for the late post. To be honest, I’m not doing too well at being an adult today. I’ve not slept well the past few days so I’ve felt like a zombie. I rolled out of bed this morning around nine-thirty. And that’s like noon when you’re a mom!

With it being 4th of July week, we have a busy few days ahead of us filled with food, family and GREAT friends!
