This the third day in a row with no afternoon thunderstorms in this area. For most of the day there were very few clouds in the sky. The sun, humidity and comfortable wind kept the temperature in the low to mid nineties.
On my walk around the RV resort this afternoon I finally stopped and explored the new recreation area. There is a Tennis Court, Two Pickle Ball courts, a basketball hoop, two horseshoe pits, a boccie ball court, a large area of artificial turf and a fire ring. Most of the time when I walk by the area is empty. I’ve only seen a few people using the basketball area. It is probably the heat.
On my visit to this park in June of 2021, work on the recreation area had just started. The land was cleared and leveled with some paving completed. It wasn’t clear what the construction was going to create. In November of last year they were actively working on the area. A restroom building was under construction. Fences around the various courts were getting installed and lights on tall concrete poles were getting installed. When I departed at the end of November it looked like the construction was in the final stages.
As I’ve mentioned in other blog entries, I don’t understand campground occupancy. This park emptied out on Monday and Tuesday after the holiday weekend as expected. What surprised me was the number of new RVs that arrived today. They also seem to be a travelers rather than longer term residents. Many are families in smaller RVs.
