The day the changed my life and my marriage, Part 1

In July 2007, TechieDadster, SuperKid, DramaMama and LilDiva and I took a vacation to visit TechieDadster's family in West Virginia. They live in a valley near a small creek, and we were all having a nice relaxing vacation, catching up with family and friends. LilDiva and SuperKid were running around like little heathens with our nieces and nephews, and having a great time. TechieDadster, DramaMama and I were going on daytrips to different parks and attractions.

On July 3, we decided we were going to start the day at Grandview Park, part of the New River Gorge National River. We went to the various overlooks, which all have a great view of the New River Gorge; it truly is a Grand View. We were at the Turkey Spur Overlook, which is at the top of a 60 foot rock. TechieDadster, DramaMama and LilDiva climbed the stairs to the top of the rock to see the view from the overlook. I decided not to go; there were 150 steps to the top of the overlook, and I did not want to overdo it with my knees. While they were at the overlook, I took some pictures of some magnolia flowers that were in bloom. I fancy myself a photographer, so I was trying to get some nice clear closeup photos of these flowers. I did not recall seeing these flowers in bloom in previous trip to WV, so I wanted to take a few pictures, in hopes of getting one good picture.

While I was waiting for the rest of my group to return, I heard a lot of rustling in the trees and brush behind where I was sitting...

To Be Continued...
