We got up pretty early this morning so we could drive up the road into Lake Catherine State Park. The property we are staying on backs up to the park, which makes it really pretty and tranquil out here. We had selected an easy 2 mile hiking trail that led to a waterfall.
The trail was beautiful and the kids had a lot of fun exploring the woods around the trail. It was fairly easy terrain most of the way, although there were a few higher sections that had Nick on edge. His anxiety when doing outdoor things with small children is high enough that I don't have to worry as much since he's doing it for both of us. It's good to be cautious though.
Nick walked across the street from our house to the Diamondhead Golf Clubhouse and rented some clubs and set off to play his first round of golf in about 3 years. Dad was tired so he took a nap, and I changed clothes and headed into Hot Springs for a while. I went to the old downtown area where the bathhouses are located and walked around, playing Pokemon Go and wandering into shops. I bought some handmade soap and bath salts for myself, and after a couple of hours headed back to the house.
