So yesterday it was time for an amazon order --- one new Zebco reel to replace the annoying Shakespeare and a collapsable fishing net to snag the big one before he gets away next time!
We both worked on Father's Day. The park was full, but it was strangely quiet. I cleaned condos and cabins after folks checked out and then worked in the store till close. Kevin tried to do some mowing but it kept raining on and off and there were too many people around to do much. Kevin got a nice card from his daughter and missed family time. We'll need to plan lots of that when we are back in Kansas this fall. At least we have guests in the park this week from Missouri so he's a little less homesick.
We did manage to get out and visit Fort Stevenson State Park just down the road last week. It's a nice park with good spots for shore fishing and a very interesting little museum located in the guardhouse.

We also drove out to Garrison Dam on day. Hopefully we will make it back and take a tour before we leave.
(Imagine picture here... it's taking too long to get from my phone to Picassa... lol)
Today I get off work at 4pm and we're expecting company. Phyllis and Leonard are staying at Lake Sakakawea COE park across the lake from us and they are coming over to say hi. We met them in Austin while they were there on a project earlier this year and we once again find ourselves in the same neighborhood. So we might make a run into Garrison for our weekly stop at Ye Olde Malt Shoppe for burgers and ice cream.
We're off Tuesday and Wednesday so hope to see my brothers since they will both be in Velva for a couple of days.
