After about 45 minutes, we decided to go around to the boat launch and try our luck there but once we got there, it was too busy...lots of kids around playing on the dock and beach...so we sat for a bit enjoying the view before walking back to our campsite.
We spent the afternoon resting and reading outside in our lounge chairs. Shortly after 3:30 Steve decided to chop some firewood and get a campfire going. The wood was wet so he had a hellava time getting it started but by adding extra paper and getting the fan out, he finally got it going.
While he had been trying to get the campfire going, we had noticed that it had gotten quite dark out...yup, there were some heavy clouds coming in. Steve joked that it will probably start raining as soon as he gets the fire going. Well, he was right on...but it wasn’t just a little rain!
It started with thunder and lightning, then wind...slight at first and then it got stronger and stronger...not a good thing when you are in the midst of lots of tall old trees! We felt safer outside until the wind subsided a bit in case a tree or large branch came down. We had just managed to get our chairs put away under the awning when all of a sudden the clouds gave way to a down pour of hail and heavy rain. It was quite the storm...
After taking a few pictures, we scrambled inside...at least we had the trailer to go into to get out of the storm...I felt sorry for all of the tenters in the campground. We noticed that some of our neighbours had retreated inside their vehicles.
In a matter of minutes, the ground was saturated...
After dinner we watched another movie..."Horrible Bosses"...too funny!
