Last night we stayed at Wal-Mart and tonight we are at Love's. I was lucky to get an end spot, so at least I won't have a giant generator on both sides. So far, so good.
I don't think I posted a photo of the campsite I was in for the last two weeks. This was a nice spot - big, very level and no close neighbors. It is a drive through site on a one-way road, and there wasn't much traffic on the road.
Across the street is Bluewater Creek, way down in the canyon. I couldn't see the canyon or the creek from my side of the street, we had to walk across to the edge and look down. It's very green and pretty down in the canyon, and I was told there are beavers down there, constantly building dams. I'd love to see and photograph them. I haven't taken that hike yet, but hope to in the future.
We had such a storm yesterday! Hard rain, hail, loud thunder and crackling lightening. The rain was so hard it actually flooded the ground and all the little depressions in the landscape were filled with water.
|Hail in the campground.|
These are photos taken out the window before the rain and as it was pouring down. I could hardly see out the window, and the wind blew the hummingbird feeder right off the tree. Later that day it was down on the ground under the tree.
Soon afterward, the water had been absorbed, but the ditches that were dug alongside the roadways were full, which, of course, is why they were dug. All this rain has really increased and greened up the ground cover all over the park.
The ditch alongside the road to the lake was completely full. Hopefully the Wal-Mart and Love's parking lots are on high ground. I'd hate to float away. :)
Katie had her annual vet check-up this afternoon. Hazel had been to a local veterinarian here in the Village of Milan outside of Grants that she liked, so I made an appointment for Katie to have her annual shot, check-up and also have her nails clipped while we were there. I've been lucky so far that she has been very healthy. All went well, and she's done for the year.
She was super insulted at having her temp taken, she HATES anyone to touch her butt, and having her temp taken, well... I wish I had my camera with me. LOL. She did fine with the shot, but really didn't like the nail clipping. The nurse had to hold her tight while the vet did the clipping. Poor thing. The only surprise was that she weighs 14.5 pounds. I thought she was around 12 pounds which is where she should be. We're going to be cutting down on the treats again.
She couldn't stop smiling when we got back to The Palms.
She is sleepy tonight, in fact, she's already been in bed for an hour.
She usually starts out on the blue blanket, then later during the night she'll snuggle in her bed, but tonight, she started out in the bed. The Vet's nurse said she would probably be extra tired for about 36 hours with this shot, and I guess that's what's happening. Sweet dreams, Katie.
And from me and Katie, sweet dreams to all of our readers, too. :)
