The forecast for the next week looks gorgeous though. Highs of around 24C (75F) and sunny!
We finally got the beach and day use area cleaned up, blown, and raked. What a difference!
It'll be another month or so before the water level is high enough to put the dock in the water.
The lake sure was blue yesterday. So was the sky!
All cleaned up!
The land across the lake is all ranch land. In fact, there's a tourist dude ranch over there, and during the summer we see them doing trail rides and cattle drives. That sort of thing. Well this past weekend one of the campers had seen one of the cattle on the shoreline...and it never moved. We eventually got the binoculars out and saw that it was stuck...in the mud!
The camper called the ranch and told them about it, and they came down and got her unstuck. We think she had been there a couple of days. Well yesterday, Ruth saw a black speck in the distance on the shore, quite a bit further down. I got out the camera, and zoomed in on it...
Yep, a cow...stuck in the mud.
I called the ranch and they said they were on their way down to help her out. Turns out it was the same stupid cow!
And we have to drop off a water sample from the park's drinking water. Have to get the water analyzed twice a year to be within the area's health and safety standards.
Saw a deal yesterday from Phoenix to Sao Paulo, Brazil for only $448 USD return. Dirt cheap. That's normally a $1,200 flight. Had we not already booked our trip to Colombia, I think I would have bought tickets to Brazil yesterday! Our Colombia trip is in November, but I'm still keeping my eyes open for something next March. Maybe Cuba, or one of the Caribbean Islands. We'll see what comes up. Lots of time left for that deal to come about!
A good deal this morning on selfie sticks. Don"t know what a "selfie stick" is? Either did we until we went to Korea last fall. It seemed like everybody in Korea owned a selfie stick. Now you can own one too!
