Stonewall Resort

Don and I just returned from a three-day getaway at Stonewall Resort in West Virginia. It was beautiful. The resort is an unusual combination of a lakeside state park and campground, a golf course, and a luxurious hotel. I never heard of it but booked a vacation when given a good deal through Amazon Local. Included with the package was a full buffet breakfast every morning plus tokens that were good for free use of some of the resort's equipment. We used tokens for an hour's rental of a tandem bike, which we used to ride a lakeside trail. We could have used kayaks for free as well. We used another token for $5.00 off of a rental of an "Aqua Cycle," a type of tricycle that can be ridden across the surface of Stonewall Jackson Lake. The conveyance was like riding a hybrid of an inefficient paddle boat and a fisherman's bobber, but we had fun and could say we did it.

We also hiked around the lake and saw wildlife, including a fawn and a huge owl. The area is historical as the birthplace of Stonewall Jackson. Unfortunately we didn't find time to make any of the historical exhibits, but we did stop at the Stonewall Jackson Lake Dam.

Don and I took pictures of each other taking pictures of each other. Why not?
