The Camera Couple is back out on the road for a little weekend warrior trip! We were headed to Hamilton Lake in South Carolina for a couple days to enjoy some good lake time. The only problem was, we picked one of the hottest weekends of the year...
We were in site 76, which ended up being awesome because you had a little private beach to yourself and could launch the paddle boards right from the site! After the ride down, we enjoyed dipping our feet in with a cold beverage in hand for a little bit.
The next morning we got up with full intentions to enjoy some coffee and our books by the lake. It wasn't long before I was interrupted by a slight work debacle that ended up taking up a good chunk of our morning peace and quiet. By the time it was sorted out, it was already scorching out so we packed up the cooler and headed out on the lake for the rest of the afternoon!
The paddle boards have been such a great investment, especially in the summer months were we can paddle, float, and then hop right in the water easily to cool off! We spent the afternoon enjoying the water with some music and cold ones, while getting some good sun burns!
We decided to head back to land and rest in the shade for a little bit. Cameron graced us with some tunes on his little dulcimer (another great investment!). The heat of the day was upon us, so we had to keep using the outdoor shower to hose down whenever we started to over heat. We also had to check on Luna frequently and keep reflective shades in the windows to try and keep the trailer cool. The only problem with our site was there was no trees to block our camper in the prime heat of the day.
After a little rest, we went back to catch the live band and happy hour at the bar. Unfortunately, the band was taking FOREVER to set up so we didn't even get to see them play. Cameron was really intrigued though, they had an upright bass, a guitar, and a saxophone....quite the combo, right? We enjoyed some cold drinks regardless.
After a nice lake day, there's nothing better than going back and relaxing in the cool air. We hung out for the evening and enjoyed a nice sunset walk with Luna before calling it a night.
The next morning we took our time packing up and enjoyed a walk around the entire campground. It was looking like another beautiful, albeit, hot day. We sweated our way through cleanup and headed back to the Concord homestead, but definitely enjoyed our new found lake spot...Next time we just might book it in a different month!
