My Summer Vacation

Maybe you figured it out from my last entry that camping is something I enjoy very much, but I haven't been able to go for a long time. I finally had the opportunity to go Friday night and ended up at El Dorado lake in the Shady Creek campground. I don't have a boat or jet ski, but that's okay because I have this huge fear of water (gives me another idea for another blog entry) and to me, the best part of camping is just being outside and cooking over a camp fire. The bugs are a huge annoyance, but it's just part of it I guess.

A group of Veterans were getting together this weekend at the lake and they had a great fireworks display and the live band was pretty good too. The loud noise from the fireworks had my dog nervous, but she is used to it since the 4th of July was just a few weeks ago.

One other interesting thing from Friday night. I hardly ever have cash with me and apparently thats all they take at some of the park entrances. We were racing against the setting sun to get the tent set up and I didn't have time to go back into El Dorado for cash. The park ranger did notice that I didn't have a permit, but she was kind enough to let me get cash the next day and pay before leaving the area. In the 1% chance that she reads this blog, thank you very kindly for the leeway and yes, I did pay Saturday morning before leaving. The weather was perfect with a slight breeze and temperatures that weren't too unbearable.

My dog spent some time snorkeling and looking for zebra mussels Saturday morning. All she came home with was a tick and some tired legs. At the risk of posting too many pictures of my dog, I'll do it anyway. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Hey Ross....kudos for braving the Kansas heat and humidity. Not a big fan of summer camping in Kansas. I like camping here locally in the fall once the bugs are gone and in the winter when we get a spell of high 50-60 degree days. Cross Timbers is a nice quiet, less crowded place to go. Speaking of vacations, will be heading to Colorado in a couple weeks and was wondering what the longer term outlook looks like for local weather. Need to set my sprinkler settings. I have been pretty lucky so far this year as I have no well and have to rely on city water to keep my grass green. Are we going to get any extreme temperatures soon (100's)? Keep up the good work.

Ross-
Millie is a doll and I love seeing the pictures, so keep posting them! I also have a Welsh Corgi, Lily, who is exteremly frightened of storms as well as fireworks. She just moved down to Wichita from my parents farm up by Topeka, KS. I think she enjoys being here, however, it has been quite entertaining seeing her reaction to "city" things as compared to chasing the pigs and cows!

Ross- It is great to know that people still enjoy to go camping. And what a better way to enjoy it with a companion. Millie is such a beautiful dog. I bet she keeps you plenty company. Thanks for posting your blogs. Keep up the great work.
