I would stay here forever if I could. Even on a hot day the cool greenness of this spot in Balsam, NC is delicious. I’ve been blessed to vacation here with my family for the past 29 years. Today we stopped to collect a few rocks-they are scarce in Florida-but ended up staying a bit longer than planned. The car trouble was pretty minor after all. The delay meant a visit with old friends and the chance to enjoy the sound of the creek on Chad Crawford Road.
When I first saw this place I was awed by its beauty. Today it struck me that it will always be that way. Always. Twenty, thirty, even one hundred years from now, the creek will still make music, the balsam still smell sweet. Praise God!
