The Ending Summer

My how time has flown, here we are celebrating the traditional end of summer-Labor Day Weekend. This is the last weekend that Blanton Creek Park will be open and the end of our workamper time here. Judy and I will be staying here in "chill" capacity after we shut the gate at 9PM Labor Day until Sun. Sept. 8th. We will use the week to get all of our travel preps done.

The park is at near capacity with 49 of the 51 sites rented. We were busy checking campers in most of Friday afternoon with the last straggler showing up at 9:45 PM. Many of our regulars are here this weekend. Judy and I will be sharing the news with many of them that we won't be returning next year. Like any job it is sad to say good-bye. We thought about not mentioning  we would not be back next year but decided that would not be the right thing to do. Many campers have certainly made us feel welcome here.

We were surprised when Andy (Outdoor Univ.) called and told us he would be bringing us dinner and visiting with us awhile at the office. Andy has been a great friend throughout our time here.
Andy stopped by with dinner for us from "Hunters Pub" (including 3 different desserts)!

Time to head home.

That is all for now. Thanks for stopping by and your comments and feedback.
