J. Strom Thurmond Lake
We've recently started working another gatehouse.
Another workamper had some medical issues,
and had to go home for a week,
so we took over their gate last weekend.
Lake Springs is a bigger day use park than Clarks Hill.
It can get very busy,
but nothing we can't handle :-)
Yesterday the volunteers were asked to help
prepare one of the loops, Mallard Point,
to be ready for the 4th of July weekend.
A bunch of us took rakes, brooms, and blowers
to clean picnic tables, and rake out pine needles and leaves
from the picnic areas.
Mallard Point is a beautiful loop in Lake Springs with
a nice shelter, observation tower,
and lots of picnic tables and grills.
We really enjoyed working alongside other volunteers,
and the physical work felt good!
After we finished and came home to shower,
George and I decided to go out for some good Mexican food.
We like to try new places,
so I went on Yelp to find something different.
We ended up at Salsa 3,
and the meals were great!
An update on my parents..
they are home today after their cruise on the Maine coast.
They had a great time, but said they'll be glad to be in their own bed!
My Dad is in a lot of pain,
but the pain meds are keeping that at bay.
He goes to the oncologist today to see what's up,
and what is the next step.
Thank you for your continued prayers!
