Thanksgiving is a timely reminder to pause and give thanks for the many beautiful things in our lives.
Happy Thanksgiving 2022
Oct. 2022 Beautiful Fall Weather Weekend
We are back again,
celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary.
Our first time here was 2002 at the Francena Cottage
to celebrate our 15th anniversary.
We fell in love with this place
and have been coming back ever since,
and are looking forward to our next visit.
Nature Has Saved It's Best Colors For The Grand Finale
This young fisherman was very proud of his catch.
And I was very happy that this beautiful drawing was left behind at the Cottage for me to share with you.
July 20-22 Log Entry From Our Guests
"We spent a weekend here with family 6 years ago.
Had so many good memories that we finally had to convinced ourselves that no place could be as special as our memories suggested.
(But) It Was
And Is !
I usually long for home when we go away.
Not here-I will be sad when Friday comes!
We love everything about this place, and hope for another trip soon."
My Aunt started me on a journey of re-reading
Green Valley guests book entries from years gone by.
Time goes by too quickly, as I was reminded when I came across Francena Cottage's Very First Guests' Log Book.
May 30th 2022 marked the 22nd anniversary of
Francena Cottage welcoming guests to Green Valley.
This is the very first guest's entry in Francena's log book.
Hundreds more entries would follow and are in journals which line bookcase shelves.
Now it's your turn to experience the beauty of Green Valley.
The log book is waiting to record your experience at this very, special place.
We're celebrating the sights and sounds of
Spring at Green Valley
After a Long Winter's Nap
The blossoms are breaking forth
The valley is green once again.
The ice is gone
the creeks and steams are flowing freely
Geese and ducks have make a visit to the lake.
And even the Easter Bunny came hoping our way.
Springtime at Green Valley sure does well good !
