For the sixth consecutive weekend, rain fell in North Texas. But we didn’t let it stop us from heading to our favorite local campground. We took a half-day of vacation so we could get a jump start, which enabled us to arrive at Loyd Park in the early afternoon. Rain started falling in the early evening, but we were able to enjoy our Date Night dinner under the pavilion.
Rain continued falling through the night and into the morning, which caused some flooding of our campsite. Unbeknownst to us, our site was situated at the confluence of two washes, so nearly three inches of rainfall created a flowing stream that carried away anything that wasn’t secured, including some leveling blocks we had been using like stepping stones in the mud. The rain stopped in the early afternoon, allowing our site to drain, and we were once again able to return to the pavilion for outdoor dining and an evening fire. The featured image captures the lunar-like glow of our Saturday evening under the flag pole light.
Sunday found us on an abbreviated schedule as we made ready to leave by noon. We’ll return in a few days, when the weather forecast calls for — you guessed it — yet another wet weekend.
