After work on Friday I headed to Deep Creek, MD to meet up with a few friends for a girls weekend. We found a deal on a tiny cabin at Blue Moon Rising. It's only a 2 hour drive from Pittsburgh, so it's the perfect distance for a quick weekend away.
We stayed in the Bella Donna cabin which featured a queen sized bed & a lofted sleeping area for two more beds. We loved the big kitchen island since it was perfect for eating dinner or playing a game. Though we didn't get to enjoy the firepit, it had the perfect overlook of Deep Creek Lake.
Saturday had a lazy start as we made bacon & egg sandwiches, coffee and mimosas while we talked over our options for the day. We decided to head to Swallow Falls State Park.
We hiked a quick loop taking us past Muddy Creek Falls, Swallow Falls and Tolliver Falls before we made it back to the car.
Then we headed to Mountain State Brewing to enjoy a beer before we headed back to our tiny home. I'm slowly trying out beer and finding out what I like and what I don't, so I signed myself up for a flight of 4 beers, all made by Mountain State Brewing.
After our post-hike beers it was time for a late lunch & eventually a late dinner as we tried some of the different wines we each brought, and played a board game, Ticket to Ride. Ticket to Ride was fun, and even more fun since I won. :) After that, we dove into the depths of the YouTube watching music videos, and making our own tribute, which hopefully will never make its way to the Internet.
We were "early" to bed since we had lots to do Sunday morning before checkout.
Sunday was filled with grocery shopping, meal prep, lots of laundry, and general cleaning around the house.
Now it's Monday again & I don't quite feel ready for another work week, but I'm sure I'll make it through.
How was your weekend?
Anyone ever been to Deep Creek, MD?
What signifies "the weekend" to you?
For me, it's drinking lots of coffee, and a Saturday morning long run.
