Come yesterday evening though, the place feels like a ghost town.
And we're okay with that!
It's been steadily busy here since about June 30. That's around seven and a half weeks that we've been going pretty much non stop so we're due for a break! We were getting really tired because we weren't going to bed until close to midnight, and getting up usually before 7:00am. I would try and grab a nap in the afternoon most days, but Ruth just kept going. Not sure how she did it, but she's a trooper.
So as of this morning, we have a total of 7 sites occupied. A few more still have campers on them but the people have gone home and will return this coming weekend. We might yet have a couple of busy weekends ahead of us, but Monday through Friday should be quiet for the rest of the season.
Our empty parking lot yesterday evening.
The picture above shows our restaurant building off to the far left. Then the little green shack beside the restaurant is one of three utility sheds. Then you can see our camp pickup truck and the other side of the trees beyond it is our cabin. In the center of the pic is the main restroom and shower building. Oh, and the entire campground is built on the side of a hill and everything is sloped like that. Amazing that some of the campsites are as level as they are!
One of our lakefront campsites.
Empty sites in the pine grove.
I went for a walk around at 10:45pm last night and couldn't believe how quiet it was! Only the sound of my footsteps in the gravel. No wind at all and no camper noise either. Usually there would still be bratty little kids running around! Ha...can you tell we were ready for a break??
Almost a full moon lighting up the lake at night.
And of course Happy Birthday to our favorite daughter Lindsey! 27 years ago today was a pretty exciting day for us!
