One of my favorite places . . .
We arrived at Dale Hollow Lake, Obey River Campground, early this afternoon. We had rented storage here for our boat and jetski and for the last couple days have been driving separately towing both boats down here. Since we no longer live in Indiana, it just didn't make any sense to keep them there. We rented storage here at Sunset Dock and Marina which is where we have been coming the last several years.
We were surprised when we came across Lake Cumberland because it is down quite a bit. We learned later there is a problem with the dam and it may be 8 years before they get it redone or fixed or whatever. Dale Hollow, on the other hand, is way higher than we have ever seen it and there are some sites in the campground that are right now in the lake! They created some boat parking in one of the play fields because the parking lot is partially under water and the ramp and pier at the far end of the parking lot are pretty much unusable.
We did a lot of running around getting the things we use when we store our boat. . . moth balls and damp rid. And then we had to wash the jetski. Pulling it behind the motorhome just covered it in dirt and mud. But we got it all cleaned up and ready to put the cover back on. We also will be going to the courthouse tomorrow and getting the new Tennessee registration for the boats as we no longer wish to license them in Indiana. So it was a long day with a lot of running around for us, but it is almost done and the boats will be here in case we swing through sometime and want to go out on the lake.
Tomorrow morning we head toward Mississippi. We will be staying at Piney Grove Campground again on Bay Springs Lake. It is a nice lake and we have thought we might eventually bring our boats down there. The reunion is Saturday and so we will be able to visit with some family before. We always enjoy seeing everyone again.
Till next time. . .
