The 4th of July weekend

One word can be used to describe the 4th of July weekend here at Blanton Creek Park - WET.  The weekend began on July 3rd and so did the rainy weather. The local fireworks display at the dam took place as scheduled on Wed. night even though the rain was steadily falling. The only way to get to the fireworks display is by boat so we expected a lot of boaters to use our boat ramp, but that did not happen. Judy and I kept the gate open an extra hour and a half until 10:30 PM just in case there were some stragglers leaving the park late after the fireworks display.

All of the sites were reserved for the holiday weekend  and all of the campers showed up! Judy and I expected mass cancellations. The weather did keep the campers a little subdued.  I did notice that the rain didn't keep the campers from socializing with their fellow campers in the evening hours under the protective cover of the awnings.

Here is a pic of a fire ring I took this morning on my first round. Some campers just don't get the fact that metal and glass don't burn or they are just too damn sorry to put trash in the proper receptacle!!

Some campers try to sneak two tents onto a site, but only pay for one. This is after they have already been informed that only one tent per site is allowed unless an additional fee is charged!

That is all for now.  Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I think wet describes a lot of our holiday weekend:(

  2. I'm sorry to say that the rain has actually stayed away from least where we are :) We're amazed at how people treat campgrounds. Ignorant!
