Karen joined a local camera club and went with a few of the camera club members to take photos at Andrew Jackson State Park.

Andrew Jackson State Park is a 360-acre South Carolina state park established in 1952 to honor the only South Carolina born president, Andrew Jackson, who was born nearby in 1767. The park is on U.S. Highway 521 about nine miles north of Lancaster, South Carolina. The park offers hiking, boating, camping, fishing and picnicking. There are 25 camping spaces with paved road access. Nearby is a 20 acre lake with an island in the middle and hiking paths all the way around it. There is said to be abundant wildlife, but none were seen on this date by the camera club members.

Karen always likes to photograph informational signs about the area.

A notable park feature is a large bronze statue called Andrew Jackson, A Boy of The Waxhaws, sculpted by Anna Hyatt Huntington, that depicts a young Jackson astride a farm horse. There is a marker recognizing Jackson's birthplace that was donated by the Daughters of the American Revolution. The park also includes a replica of a late 18th-century one-room schoolhouse and an amphitheater.

The camera club wanted Karen to take close-up photos showing texture, design, color, nature, and anything that everyday hikers probably would not photograph. The day started out a bit gloomy, with light sprinkles, but the weather got nicer as the morning turned into afternoon.

Karen wanted to get both flags flying straight out, but there just was not enough wind.
