Sunday November 3, 2013-Inks Lake State Park

We had a very nice Sunday, watching all the weekend campers leaving. We miss our old site that was beside the dump station because it was our entertainment to watch. I couldn't believe the amount of jockeying around and trying to cut people off, just to get up there and empty their waste water tanks.

John came by in the afternoon to pick me up to go for a ride around the deer blinds. We should start work on them this week when the deer corn comes in. John has done a lot of work with the mower, carving out roads and trails but there is still plenty of work to be done. I'm looking forward to it.

We had a campfire last night but we didn't spend too long at it because the wood wouldn't burn, it just smoldered and smoked. It was still smoldering this morning, so I added a couple of small pieces of firewood and some kindling that I had and coaxed it back up to a full fire. It was nice to sit outside with a small fire burning. The breeze was cool but sitting in the sun was very pleasant. I managed to keep the fire going all day, so we had another campfire after dark. Our friend Mike came by to look at our lights and our neighbors Chip and Bunkie came over to chat for awhile. We barely made it back inside before the rains came! We knew that rain was forecast, but we hadn't been inside ten minutes when it started. Lucky...

So long.
