Tuesday afternoon this Phaeton pulled into the site across from where we are parked. When we saw who it was we were so excited for it was Joyce and Ken. They were part of our Blue Heron camping group from Florida. We had a good visit with an evening of dinner and cards. Unfortunately they only had reservations here till Friday and since it was Labor Day weekend the campground is full so they were unable to extend.
This is a very family friendly and active park. Saturday night there was a good country band and we did some dancing. Sunday evening they had a DJ outside, the kids were enjoying it.
Then at 8:30 there was the launching of Chinese lanterns. They sold them at the office for $2.00
When you opened it up there were strings on the bottom with a little piece of cardboard soaked with wax so it would burn.
Larry lit the cardboard and waited for the air inside the lantern to heat up.
Ready for the lantern to take flight.
Up, up and away.
The sky was filled with a 100 of floating lanterns. It was quite a sight.
