Secret Vistas –
By Glynn Wilson

We pulled into Tannehill State Park on a cloudy, drizzly Friday the week before Christmas and stumbled onto perhaps the best deal on a campsite we’ve seen after three months of camping all over Maryland, Virginia and the Gulf Coast. There’s a winter weekly special of $120 a week.

This may be the first site we’ve stayed in for more than three days in a row in more than three months.

President Barack Obama held his annual Christmas press conference and announced he was headed to Hawaii for a 17 day vacation. We may as well take seven off here near Birmingham, where Christmas is right around the corner. We may even do a little Christmas shopping in the country store.

Before the sunset on Friday, I noticed these ducks fishing in the creek by the campsite and grabbed the Nikon and the big lens just in time before the light was gone behind the ridge. We will be working this site in better light for the next few days, so stayed tuned for most photos in this space.

Merry Christmas, and cheers to my friends : )
