The heat today at Anderson Road was almost unbearable. You could see the leaves on the trees wilting. Bees stayed low to the ground. Birds songs were shorter not as vibrant. Despite the heat however we had plenty of people in the campground. Most everyone was in the lake or sitting next to it. Lawn chairs with feet resting in the cool water, reading a book and drinking some sweet southern iced tea, everyone was happy. While the day seemed to be one of those that have more hours in them than necessary, after we finished dinner we were making our rounds of the campground and happened on a beautiful sunset.
Capturing the setting sun and the rising moon from site 16, the cicadas singing their nightly song for the campers, framed the picture just perfectly. On this Sunday evening when the campground is at about half occupancy we can take our time as we travel the campground to listen and enjoy the sights and sounds. We’ve always “camped” — from smaller tents as kids, to monstrosity tents with multiple rooms with the kids and now in the luxury of our motorhome, it’s tough to classify what we do as “camping” but it sure feels good to say so!
