ROCK AND GEM HOUND
Our enthusiastic Granddaughter has rekindled an old hobby of ours--rock and gem hunting. In earlier years we spent some wonderful weekends in and about Franklin, NC, searching for rubies, sapphires, garnet and other precious and semi-precious stones, as our two sons were growing up. So, this past Summer, when our Granddaughter spent some vacation time with us, we returned to North Carolina for some more rock hunting.
We did not find any outstanding gems; but the weather was good, the scenery outstanding, and we all had a great time. We will do this again soon.
