A Bit of Excitement – with a Happy Ending

The weekend has come and gone and we now have our loop mostly to ourselves.  That was not the case over the weekend though; all nineteen sites were occupied in our loop. Since being here all the campers have been very pleasant.  Many of the campers come to swim in the spring. I have pics but I am having so much difficulty getting them up-loaded.

Saturday evening Judy and I tried another of the local eateries, ABC Pizza. I know the name is a little suspect.  We went with the intention of getting a pizza but after looking at the menu we changed our minds.  I had been wanting some spaghetti for awhile so that’s what I settled on. Judy went with lasagna. When the orders reached the table we knew we were in for a treat. Judy and I both enjoyed our food.  We both agreed it was the best spaghetti and lasagna we have ever had. That is saying something because we both have eaten throughout the US and Europe. Who would have thunk it.

We were back at the Cardinal by 7:45. Judy and I got into our evening clothes and settled in with the last Harry Potter episode – The Deathly Hallows PT2. You have to do what you have to do with no TV!  Thirty minutes into the movie Judy noticed a lot of flashing blue lights outside. We paused the movie and I went out to see what was going on. There were half dozen patrol cars, fire truck and an ambulance and a lot of commotion.  I found out those two girls, eight and four were lost. It seems they went into the forest following some deer. The deer are very tame here. They had been missing a couple of hours by this time (9:00 PM). The park personnel were searching all the service roads throughout the park. They did pick up the trail near Usher boat ramp but the tracks then went back into the forest.  Judy and I turned on the park radio to keep up with the progress of the search. At 9:30 we heard that the girls had been found and were being checked over by the EMT personnel. They had quite a few ticks on them but nothing more serious. Judy and I were worried they might walk into the river. By 10:00PM things quieted down and we went back to watching Harry Potter.

That’s all for now, thanks for stopping by.
