Carters Lake

Carters Lake is a 3,200 acre man made body of water, built and managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It is used for hydropower, flood control, and recreation.

Dan delivered Joan, me, and two kayaks near this swimming area so Joan could give me my very first kayak experience. It was successful...and fun! Even with all the wind, we stayed afloat.

We definitely need to come back to this great campground for a family retreat. The kiddos would love it.

I know, I know. We live on a lake, so why would we leave it? Because Georgia has lots more treasures to check out and enjoy, that's why!

So the new tow dolly worked well except for one teensy error. MM put the emergency brake on during the strapping down process and didn't even THINK about releasing it. The emergency brake controls the rear tires, so he managed to "flat out" a tire by dragging it for several yards on our gravel road. Bless his heart. He won't get fired! And he will replace the tire. Thump, thump goes the tire.

Our weather is fabulous--wake up to 55, warm up to 75-80. Love it. And so far, no bears.

Life is good in the woods, y'all!

How fun. I love getting away to someplace new. Not in a tent though.

Have a fabulous day and enjoy that weather. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to the babies. ♥♥♥

I like the views of the lake, beach, river... I don't necessarily need to get wet. :)

So MM just got an A- on his project right?

Have a marvelous day! xoxo

Looks like fun! And better to find out the small glitch on a short, no pressure trip, right? Glad you're having fun.

I would love to live on a lake. I'm near a river but that's not the same as living on a beautiful lake.
I see your husband's idea works. Good job. He can fix the tire, that's no problem I hope?
Have a watery Thursday Sandy. See ya.
