Up at 06:00AM, Adam was up at 08:00AM. It was cloudy with a forecast for rain. We made a run to the house to get a couple things, and on the way back it started a light rain. Nothing like a rainy day at the Lake, Adam was a little disappointed until I pointed out in over two weeks of camping this summer this was the first rainy day. Also the temperature stayed about 75 degrees. which was great for a break.

We pretty much stayed around the campground but did go down to to beach for a little while. Here is what a rainy  day at the Lake looks like.




the water was 15 degrees warmer than the air temp.

Here is an example of Home Owners Boards run amok.clubhousesigns08-05-11a

Signs at the Clubhouse at the beach. Looks like they only have room for one more. Is this really necessary. Also my favorite is there, No Pets, even though there is a leash law and pick up after your dog rule. Entirely to many layers of rules for my taste. But it is a private community with a very low or non existent crime rate, I think the Board is just spoiled because they are used to getting their way on everything.

Anyway that’s my rant for today, I know I shouldn’t complain  and run for the Board and try to make a difference. But I have no interest in politics after being around them all my working life.

Supposed to be sunny and hot tomorrow so it will be back to normal here. Some more campers are setting up so Adam will have more friends tonight. That’s about it for today, Everyone be safe out there. Sam & Donna……


  1. We are with you one all the rules. Way to many of them, it is one of our pet peeves. You'll have to come to Mexico, dogs are allowed on the beaches there.
