Happy Memorial Day

We hope everyone has enjoyed this Memorial Day weekend. Our campground was completely full, and so we were kept pretty busy. We sold a record amount of firewood. The weather was beautiful on Friday and Saturday, but Sunday it rained all day and night. It is still rainy this morning, so I’m sure the dump station parade will begin soon.

Overall, everyone was well behaved. We had one person make a big mess in the men’s bathroom. It seems there is always one idiot in the bunch. I am looking forward to the peace and quiet we have during the week.

Our friends Jim and Wendy camped at the site next to us for the weekend. We enjoyed visiting, happy hours, meals, campfires and playing games.

We continue to enjoy watching the hawks in the nest here in the park. Here is one of the adults on a beautiful clear day.


We’ve been able to see one baby. The nest is at least 40 or 50 feet up in a huge tree, so its hard to get a good look. Here’s the baby we have been able to see. It is on the right and is all white. Kevin said it looks like a poodle.


The birdfeeders have also had quite a few visitors. I put some grape jelly and oranges on top of a crate on the ground, and the orioles have been visiting.


Don’t wish upon a star – Reach for one!


  1. Yep, there is always that one idiot for sure! I remember the mess I had to clean up last year, definitely not the highlight of this job.

    Isn't it fun watching these big beautiful birds when they nest and have babies. Every day I am out looking out our owlets. One has taken flight so I always have to search in all the trees to find it and the other one has now come out onto the branch beside it's nest so I would think that it will just be a matter of a few days before it is trying out it's wings.

    Enjoy your peaceful week after today is over.

  2. I love it when the Orioles pass thru. Got to see one at a friend's house. Hope this rain heads out of here.


We'd love to hear from you!
