I don't know about you, but when I spend time at a Virginia State Park cabin I feel like part of the family!
I was considering the whole Virginia State Park cabin idea when I came up with the thought "After all, we do sleep in your beds" as a somewhat humorous saying about the closeness of staying in a state park cabin, like staying with family. Through the many photographs that are shared with us on the Facebook page and in contests from state park goers having fun, I have a real inclination that we are a big family.
What do you think?
Perhaps it is seeing us with our first morning cup, in track pants or fleecy pajama bottoms sitting out on the deck early in the a.m.'s before the family rises? This could make us feel like family.
Is it the brisk walks around the cabin loop with the pooch on her leash, saying hello to each person we meet, asking how they are, how they are enjoying their vacation or getaway that makes me think this? This could make us feel like family.
Maybe that casual kick-back time we have around the fire ring, making s'mores, telling ghost stories, hearing deer leap through the brush to escape our notice? This could make us feel like family.
Could it be the homeyness of the cabin furnishings, the woodwork, the tile, the vaulted ceilings, and the bunk beds? This could make us feel like family.
Maybe it is playing board games late into the night, with no TV or interruptions other than the laughing 'til our sides hurt? This is a family and friends thing I have determined, letting our guards down and laughing. We are tense and stressed at work and school, so when we go to a Virginia State Park we can let our hair down and relax, like a family. This could make us feel like family.
Might it be the simple act of being together, everyone at the park being together? Everyone there is with friends and family, making memories? This could make us feel like family.
Is it the smell of bacon and eggs cooking, or the wilderness outside our window? This could make us feel like family.
Comfort, relaxation and spending time together at a cabin
Could it be bacon cooking brings us familial fondness and memories at a cabin
I guess what I am asking is, do you think it is the sights, sounds, smells and feel of staying in a Virginia State Park cabin that makes us feel like home? One thing I know for sure is that no one wants to leave at the end of the stay, when the fun has just begun!
