Joy to the world

Let Earth receive her king!

Christmas year around … I’m for it! Meanwhile, we’re heading to Hunters … a great place to camp. The nightly sum of $2.50, and it looks like another private campground. Just up the road is the community of Cedonia … Wikipedia states: “Cedonia comprises the Ye Olde Country Store, a veterinary clinic, and seven homes. There are a few farms surrounding it, and The Cedonia Community Church lies just outside the city limits. The church tends to be seen as the focal point of the community, hosting many community events as well as events from neighboring communities. The church is also the source of the name Cedonia. When it was built in 1897, the settlers searched for a name for their community. They settled on the name Cedonia, a shortened version of Macedonia from the plea to the apostle Paul in Acts Ch. 16 vs. 9 that says, “Come over here to Macedonia and help us.”

Ahhh ... everything rests in the winter ...

Private campsites again!

A great rest. Lots of hot chocolate, good food, late night card games. At night it was completely dark … overcast so that there was NO light. A good time for candlelight dinners!

Pretty in any season.

Hunters has a couple of little cafes … good food, good coffee, good company. Y’all could live here and live very well!

    1. It’s a beautiful drive along Lake Roosevelt … Hunters to Cedonia, then up to Gifford. There’s a free ferry there that goes across the lake to native land. Or, continue north along the lake to Kettle Falls. Lots of places to stop and reflect … certainly to stir ones’ soul!
