Before the storm fun!

Even with the storm, we had a nice time at camp. Our spot was huge, and we had a nice view of the lake.

Bill is setting up camp, so much easier with a trailer.

Bean loved it too, lots of room for him to have his own space.

Of course the water was Bean's favorite, he could swim all day if you let him. We spent half the time in the water and the other half, taking pee breaks. I think he swallowed half the pond.

I got a little sit on kayak, to play around in. I actually got Bean in it and he was pretty good, but he wanted to stand on the edge and there is not enough room for that, so we had to give up.

While Bill and Bean played in the water, I paddled around the coves. The water is shallow and with the little boat, I could get close up to the shorelines and as you can see, the water is shallow, even further out. That is Bill and Bean playing on the shoreline, to the left of my bow.

After dinner we went for long walks around the campground, lots of side roads to explore and then we would come back to the beach to watch the sunset.

And to end the night, we had a campfire. Bean liked that too, he loved that he could stay outside all day and night. Now he wants to stay on our porch, and I don't blame him, it is a lot cooler outside.

I didn't get time to do any stitching or relax, so hopefully I can on the next trip. I did finish my stitchery when I got home. I think I might try tea staining this one. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Even with the storm, you had a lot of fun. Nikko is terrified of any kind of fire from someone smoking to a barbecue, to a campfire. I wonder how she would do in the water. She hates wet feet.
