While my RV was in the shop getting its new roof put on, my friend Sue and I went camping. Although we both do 18th century Rendezvous camping, this time we camped in modern nylon tents.
(All varieties of camping are fun: car camping, RVing, primitive camping, backpacking, you name it...)
We set up camp in the shadiest spot I could find us at Walton Park, the Izaak Walton League of Lynchburg facility, and enjoyed a pleasant beat-the-heat weekend, mostly swimming.
The Izaak Walton park is one of my very favorite places to be. There's lots to do there, more fun than I can cram into any one weekend. Take a quick tour with me:
IWLL members enjoy
RV camping, seasonal or overnight
Archery range - and a really cool archery woods walk too.
The lower lake is for swimming, boating and fishing. The upper lake (no picture, sorry) is for fishing.)
Besides the picnic pavillion, there are many picnic tables and even a huge grill suitable for cooking for a large crowd.
This is the skeet range. There are also ranges for rifle and pistol. We have various contests and events.
Finally we tied the canoe to the tree, packed up our gear, and returned to the workaday world and, in my case, other sorts of camping.
