This morning my adrenaline junkie friends went zip lining and took an off road driving course. I have come to the conclusion that acting like I am 18 while I am 40 makes me feel like I am 80, so I decided to get a pedicure. I think I have lovely summer feet now. Bring on the sandals!
After checking out from the resort we headed to Falling Waters. I am feeling kind of uncultured since I did not know what that was. In case you are in my shoes, it was the house that Frank Lloyd Wright designed for the Kaufmann family of the department store fame. They had commissioned him to design their weekend home and wanted it next to a beautiful waterfall. Instead, Frank designed it over the waterfall. It was stunning! The location was breathtaking and the design was architectural genius, as they pointed out to us again and again on the tour. I am so glad that Kellie suggested we stop there on our way home. Here is the view that they were trying to preserve, and that you can see from almost anywhere in the house.
I really wish my phone took better pictures, but if you wait for me to get the photos off my actual camera it will never happen. If Kellie downloads hers I will upload them here. It was an amazing weekend with amazing friends. I have not laughed so hard, often or long in a really long time. When I fully recover I will tell you about our drive home that took twice as long as our trip out. There were times like when we almost crossed the West Virginia border and I was not sure we were ever getting back. I have not been so excited to see our house since last weekend when I got home from Relay For Life, and that is saying a lot!
