Claytor Lake Camping & Catching Up

I feel like I am always playing catch-up. I am loving the warm fall days and cool evenings. Friday and Saturday were near 80º here so I got lots of yard and garden work done. All that’s left to eat from the garden is beets. We had beet and potato soup yesterday. If you haven’t tried it yet, do so, you’ll love it! I just never got around to planting a fall garden so I am missing out on all the greens that I grew last fall.

Quentin was on vacation week before last. We got lots of home repairs done, lots of hunting in, and a little camping. We have had a ton of crazy water problems. First from the hot water heater then from a leaky roof. This is my first year hunting. I am enjoying my time in the woods and with Quentin. It provides a good workout that’s for sure. I have shot at(and missed) one turkey. We really enjoyed the last wild turkey we had and hoping to have another. Our camping trip was to Claytor Lake. It is my favorite place to camp, and we always enjoy ourselves.

Wow, that’s a lot of pictures. I think I am caught up on everything I wanted to share, and I am going to try to do better now.
