Good day from Site 60
and the start of our 2 week July FCP vacation with our crew from London Ont. We came in 2 days early and managed to snag walkup Site 60
. We have to move again for a night this morning and then tomorrow again... Ugh.
Yes Site 60
was a great site for the night! Especially since it was a prime viewing spot for the near full moon
last night which came up about 10:45pm on the eastern horizon. A nice orange behind a layer of hot summer cloud.
We were entertained by a beaver who
would cruise by every so often, then come up on the site, rattling the bushes in the dark, then head back into water to much on a bunch of leaves that he had pulled of the shrubbery. Even managed a few shots of him feeding away in the dark, not bothered by our flashlights. We could hear another beaver nearby as well.
We had two campers performing taps at quiet hour down further in the bay on First Pond.
Water, bathrooms and showers
should all be restored again today now that the well pump has been repaired. A big thanks goes out to staff would worked tirelessly to resolve this problem all week.
Yesterday a young gal from the DEC had a fishing kiosk setup at the boat launch
with info and about 30 fishing rods for kids (probably adults too) to try their hand at fishing. She will be there every Friday so be sure to head over if you are their on a Friday!
As I mentioned elsewhere, a camper had chairs on their Penninsula beach and kids water toys stolen, then later straps for their canoe
were stolen from the back of their truck. Time to get more diligent about locking stuff up! Sad.
Roy had more wood
stolen from his wood lot so he is no longer going
to be selling wood to campers. He has removed his wood racks.
A bit of on and off drizzle this morning as we await the morning coffee, buns and papers gal
More later along with several great photos!
Cheers from CampADK
