Day 6: Fishing at Tumbling Waters Campground & Trout Pond. $4/lb. (we caught 2 trout and paid $6). All bait and fishing gear provided. Was supposed to rent a pontoon boat from Almond Boat Dock($150/4 hours) but rained all day.
It was raining when we woke up - but we weren't going to let it stop us! We did rearrange our plans to go either tubing in Deep Creek or rafting on ...
... and the swim very pleasant.
Thao was terrified of the rope swing but finally ended up jumping off it. Mika and Matt both also mustered up the courage to jump. What a hoot!
Our lazy day ended up to be pretty exciting!
Then, we finished up with the bonfire to end all bonfires! We thought the first night's fire was big. Then the 2nd night, the fire was ...

The owner assured Matt he would ensure he had a great time and gave him a small, gentle horse (Bailey) who behaved perfectly the whole ride. My horse, Dennis, was similarly well behaved. Will was on Patchy who often stopped to eat. Ashley's horse, Pearl, ...
... We ended up paying for Will and myself and the kids helped. So we had 4 buckets between us. Had to dig our own dirt from a little "tunnel". Apparently, this was all native dirt, meaning no gems had been planted here to allow for instant gratification.
Took us about an hour to go through a bucket each, which was plenty of time for me. Only Matt wanted to do more - the rest of us were pretty tired - ...
... switched to hiking shoes and hiked the waterfall trail that started right from the same parking lot. We did cut it short after an hour or so as we figured the boys would be done.
We returned to find the two men snoozing while Matt and Esen ran around them in circles. They had also found some awesome glittery iron pyrites, one in the shape of a heart, in the creek.
We would definitely go back!
