Day One – The Dry Day

We got to the campground – Lake Hartwell State Recreation Area – last night after dark.  We settled into a campsite near the lake front, but were very pleasantly surprised when we opened the RV door this morning and had this view:


The Herd, of course, really did not care about the view so much as the activity:



Hope your weekend is going great!

    Sounds like it’s going well so far. Hoping that the weather holds up for the rest of your time out there.

    Beautiful place. Glad the Herd got some good hiking. We’ve had continuous rain all day. No hiking here.

    Views are for humans although out mum did think it was very pretty!
    Our scenery is in the sniffing – looked like a great place for great smells and we know you guys would have had a brilliant time!
    We are still ‘enjoying’ the rain!!!
    love and kisses

    Oh, nice view! Beau would like the lake. Me, long walks with sniffing would be better. Hope

    How beautiful. We agree we don’t care about the view as much as the walk..
