J. Strom Thurmond Lake
Friday we arrived at our new home for the summer..
working for the Corps of Engineers
at J. Strom Thurmond Lake.
We were thrilled to pull in and be directed to our site
who have been here since September.
They will be working here also until the end of May.
Our site, #6, couldn't be more perfect..
..with views like this!
Mike and Terri were nice enough to invite us over for dinner on Friday night.
It's great to have a site to call our own, and it feels more homey
with our bird feeders out.
Even Mr. Gnome is quite happy to have something to look at!
Today we found out our duties.
We will work the weekends and 3 summer holidays
manning the gatehouse at Clarks Hill Park.
The park is a nice day use area,
with picnic and swimming areas and a boat ramp.
The Corps set up this village for 12 workampers
in October 2011.
Everyone has a nice view of the lake,
as well as full hookups, a grill, picnic table,
fire ring, and lantern pole.
There is also a common area with laundry facilities,
work out equipment, fireplace, and TV.
There is also a kitchen for potlucks, etc.
With these accommodations,
I think the summer is going to fly by too fast!
