Memorial Day Weekend


Super busy weekend here at the park on Lake Hartwell. People turned out in droves to launch their boats, create parking havoc and have a blast celebrating the Memorial Day Weekend.

I am plumb tuckered out from walking and working the park doing my volunteer duties as Park Host.

But some fun was thrown in too. I met some sailors who threw a barbecue party on my patio that included lamb, ribs and shrimp. It was great fun all around. Harley has been busy as a Bark Ranger. He was thrilled to try lamb for the first time, deciding he found it rather tasty and the bone gnawing a bit of fun. Someone went to pet him while he was chewing his bone and he growled "Don't touch the bone!" Sheesh...

Mid week I had some friends from Florida stop by, we hadn't seen each other in awhile so it was fun to catch up. They did a bit of fishing down my secret trail.

Harley was having great fun showing off his new Frisbee act. Tomorrow is another holiday so another day of chaos.

I am trying hard to keep up! But I am exhausted. A sudden brief thunderstorm emptied out most of the picnic and swim area but only a small handful of boats came back to claim their truck and trailer.

  1. i used to think boaters were jerks. still do, but i think the reason they park like that is most lots are designed by people that drive cars. they make the spots for cars. you can't get in or out with a boat if you stay in lanes.

    don't get me going about rvers.

  2. aaaahhhhh ass boaters not sailors. sail boaters are a better breed. sorry about that mermaid.

    i used to live on a small lake. i swim, well i did then. no lake, no swim. it was about 1/3 mile across and 1/4 mile wide. i used to swim the perimeter. one time there were 2 ass boaters 3/4 the way around. i adjusted my course to miss them 1 ass keep floating around to block me. i don't suffer fools well. so i just went my original direction.

    this ass hollers at me that he's fishing there. i tell him i can see him and he has been moving in front of me. i also tell him that he keeps doing it that we will both be in his boat and he wont like that.

    this is just how it runs here. ass boaters.
