Your first visit to Blackwater Falls is never your last. I'm thrilled to say I am the reason Sarah Cooper and her family finally came to Blackwater Falls for the first time in their lives. I'm quite sure they will be back. (Click Here For Short Video)
But I'm more thrilled to finally have been able to meet her, her husband, Jay, and her two beautiful daughters. We had a blast at the falls and then eating dinner at The Purple Fiddle in Thomas, West Virginia. Her husband is someone I'd like to hang out with watching football on a Sunday afternoon. And her two daughters were well mannered, polite, but each their own person and felt free to express themselves. (Tall One declared me "officially cool" for my iPhone!)
You learn a lot about someone from their children and I learned that Sarah is someone who appreciates individuality... and respects it. She and Jay have done an amazing job with their two girls. They should be proud. I know they are.
Here are some photos from the falls.
The hardest part was ducking low enough to put my head next to Sarah's. :)
