We so value playtime in the great outdoors that we have formed a group of friends called Forever Wild FRIENDS. Our Forever Wild FRIENDS look forward to playing together and eating a meal together each month at our special events in beautiful places. Here is just a sampling of our recent adventures:
Eating a gourmet sunrise breakfast at Musgrove Mill golf course overlooking the Enoree River and then jumping into thirty-five golf carts for a guided ornithology ID hunt on an unbelievably beautiful course along the river.
Planning a scrumptious pick, cook, and eat adventure at our CSA garden and Irish bed and breakfast, the Farmhouse at Bush River. Fifteen of us gardening buddies worked with three chefs and prepared twelve different dishes. What a fun and delicious meal!
Touring the hidden waterfalls around Lake Joccassee by boat and watching the bald eagles soar.
We can hardly wait for the next adventure. The greatest reward for our time invested together in nature is the new friendships we form each month.
“We do not quit playing because we grow old; we grow old because we quit playing.” Oliver Wendell Holmes
