Mom, dad and I went on vacation for nine whole days to one of my favorite places. It is a special cabin at one of our parks that the public doesn't rent because there is no real road and mom says the cabin is too rustic for the public. So staff can rent it. It is right on the river. It is called the Brown Cabin (it's not named after someone named brown, it's just painted brown) and it's at Shenandoah River State Park. I know my pal @ShawneeShep and her mom know about the cabin because they found it when they were hiking in the park.
It is a really good vacation for mom because there is

the rain was very relaxing. When you want to spend your vacation reading
and relaxing the rain is not a bad thing.
Oh the big news was that we also
took Alexis and she got herself a mouse! Mom said - another reason we
don't rent that to the public (no pix). She had lots of fun stalking all kinds of
If you like a good place for a vacation, I highly recommend Shenandoah River State Park. The park has "for the public" cabins that
are only a year old and two great campgrounds.
