J. Strom Thurmond Lake
This was our first full weekend at the Clarks Hill gatehouse.
Saturday was children's day at all 3 day use areas on the lake.
We really expected to be busy, as everyone's fee was waived.
For some reason, it was a slow day!
We're not sure that the Corp advertises these events very well.
Most people were pleasantly surprised when we told them there was no fee!
Today we woke up to cool rain showers,
we even had our fireplace going this morning!
The rain kept the people from visiting the lake.
George finally got the key to the board...
it displays the shelters that are reservable,
and we post the names of the parties when they do.
Finally about 11 am we got a call on the radio that
we could shut down the gatehouse and come home.
Next weekend is Memorial Day,
so I'm sure we'll be very busy.
There have been a few visitors to our site..
This cute little guy is making George a bit nervous.
He (the field mouse, not George) is eating bird seed off the ground now,
There are two different goose families that come off the lake
to graze in the grass..
This afternoon we enjoyed lunch out with Mike & Terri at Cici's.
The sunsets are different every night, but the clearing rain clouds
made tonight's especially nice..
We have a busy day tomorrow - grocery shopping and the like.
Looks like the week is shaping up to be a nice one!
