Lake Wateree Photos

Here are a few miscellaneous pictures I took at Lake Wateree.

When we first arrived the mayflies were everywhere.

We found a locust shed.

And a dragonfly, that I couldn’t get close enough to get a close-up picture of without falling into the lake.

It amazes me how the trees keep growing even though the water has washed all the soil away from the roots.

Wonder what happened that caused this unusual knot in this tree?

This tree reminds me of a Sesame Street character.

There were tents…..

and tent villages all over.

That is until the Park Ranger went around and told them all that a storm was approaching. They abruptly packed up and went home.

I wonder how this broken tail light lens got up in that tree limb?

I’ll bet there was a short person looking all over for this.

And someone tell me……when did socks start growing from trees?

That concludes the Lake Wateree vacation pictures.

I hope you enjoyed the interesting things I found to share with you.

Lake Wateree Sunsets

One of my favorite things to take pictures of……sunsets.

Especially on the water.

Which, from a moving boat……

can be quite a challenge.

I was surprised to see that this moon turned out as clear as it did.

I also like capturing a silhouette.

And rays from the sun, even as it’s setting.

This was a relaxing ride at Lake Wateree.

Our last evening there.

After returning home and looking at all these pictures….

I was ready to return to Lake Wateree for another week.

Or two.

Hot Doggin’

When we first started camping at Lake Wateree, we didn’t have a boat.

After so many times, camping near a lake, watching everyone else having all that fun with a boat….the Captain was GONNA HAVE A BOAT.

For fishing, cruising and hot doggin’.

You ask what is hot doggin’?

Well, most people pull, with their boat,  a tube with wet, laughing, white knuckled kids aboard.

We tried that. It didn’t work too well.

The Captain found what is called a Double Dog. It’s easy to ride, easy to stay on, that is unless someone aboard the boat is messing with the rope. I’ll tell you about that ordeal another time.

This post is about The Captain and Boo “hot doggin'” on the Double Dog.

Here’s Boo……

The boat in the background is the fishing boat that was caught in the storm I told you about last week.

Yep, right off the Double Dog.

We doubled back and picked him up.

Gotta love them both!
