I just love rain hitting the roof of the trailer, it is so comforting and just makes you relax. I feel bad though for those that are trying to camp for they usually have a miserable time especially if they are in a tent. After gate duty we came back and ate some lunch and then we tuned in the TV and found the Colts playing! Ya...we don't always get stations back in here but today we did get FOX which is where they were playing. They won today with a winning field goal. My son-n-law, Tom will be so happy about that. I only watched part of the game though as I was so sleepy. Two early mornings in a row and I was ready for a nap. I don't hardly ever take naps but today I was in the mood for one. I ended up sleeping for almost 3 hours. And guess what I missed? A turtle! Yep, Art got a call from Dee to go check on a camp fire that was left burning, (not smart..good way to start a forest fire) so Art doused it with lots of water as he said it was hanging over the fire pit and was burning really big. So on his way back to the camper he and Cooper came across a turtle crossing the road. Oh well I know they are in here, now I just have to come across one. After I got up from my nap we went and started to clean our sites. We had 10 campers on our loop this weekend, so we needed to check fire pits and pick up trash. Oh ya, you can always count on trash. Most people are really good but there are a few that mmmmm just don't get what dumpsters are for. Someone had peeled about 6 eggs and left the egg shells all over the ground. You know how hard it is to pick up egg shells without them breaking into smaller pieces? It looked like it had snowed in one area of their site, but I was able to get most of them picked up. Then they had dumped a whole box of cereal on the ground, guess they thought they were feeding the mice. Not a good idea, mice draw in snakes and that is something I am not fond of.
Cooper and Effie just love it when we clean sites. They love any opportunity to get on that golf cart. We then came back to our site and Art started a fire.....
