Rainy Day at Beavers Bend cabins
Take a nap.Read a book. Write a book. Write a letter to your grandmother. They like that better than e-mail. Bring your favorite board game, Monopoly, Candy Land or Scrabble. Can you spell r-a-i-n? Put together a scrapbook of your favorite pictures. Better yet, ask your parents or grandparents for their old pictures to look through. On winter rainy days, settle in next to the fireplace (open Oct 15 - Mar 15). On summer rainy days, go for a walk in the woods, and look for the waterfalls. They are always better with a rain. 580-584-6339 - Body Harmony Spa in Hochatown. Soothing music, melted shea butter and Dead Sea salt, hot towels. Ahhh.
