Lakepoint Resort State Park, Eufaula, AL., Part 1
Gary decided to go to see his sister and her husband at their farm in Georgia. It has been nearly a year since we were there last. But first, we spent four nights at Lakepoint Resort State Park in Eufaula, Alabama. It's only about a hundred miles from the farm, so it was a convenient place to spend a few days. Arrangements had been made to meet up with Facebook friends Debbie Donaldson and Sherry Muzyka since they live fairly close to the campground. Gary and I had never met them before, and Debbie has a cute little Scotty Hilander named "Bubbles" that I was particularly interested in meeting. We arrived on Thursday, March 15th. We were there alone for the first day and night. After getting me set up, Gary wandered through the park taking pictures as he usually does. The park is big and pretty, with over two hundred campsites spread over four different loops. The Clark Loop where we stayed is the only one that is right on the lake. All of the campsites along the banks of the lake were taken, but we were right across the street and had a great view. As usual when we camp, I was the smallest and oldest trailer there, but that's alright. I like being different. It was quiet and peaceful, even though a fishing tournament was going on. There were lots of squirrels, and a couple of very friendly ducks that came by for visits. Our first day was nice, but we were rather tired after the long drive. The real fun would begin on day two when our new friends would arrive.
