Independence Day is something we have never celebrated before and now it ia national holiday that we get to be involved in! Adam got Friday off work so we had a great 3 day weekend 🙂
We knew that we weren’t going to be heading out to watch any fireworks as we couldn’t leave Maisy alone so we ended up going for a nice walk & an explore Saturday morning. We headed to Blakeley State Park, which is around a 10 minute drive from us. It was $3 per adult to enter and we got a map, a self-guided tour and a bit of historical literature. We parked up and decided to have a wander on our own rather than use the guide. It was so hot and we knew that we wouldn’t get it all done in a couple of hours.
The history of the park is quite interesting and is Blakeley is now known as a ghost town, only there aren’t any buildings left as nature has taken over the site over the years. It was a very picturesque woodland and a perfect place to photograph 3 new dresses for blog posts. We explored the walkways and just had a couple of hours taking in nature. The park is right on the Tensaw River Delta so I was on the lookout for alligators. Unfortunately, we didn’t see any! We did see a range of bugs. Thank fully though, all bugs kept their distance and even posed for a few photos. 🙂
