We took advantage of an opportunity to corral a couple of grandkids, Simon and Samara, while Mom and Dad attended a wedding in New York. It was a great opportunity, indeed, since Andrea, their Au Pair, AND her friend Monica were both interested in going with us. 4 adults on 2 toddlers seemed like good odds to us, so we bundled up into the trailer and launched off for an overnight to Lake Ki, the site of our inaugural trip in the rig just 3 months earlier.
Saturday, June 2, was an absolutely beautiful late spring day. I think we speak for the ladies (they are from Colombia) when we say tuvimos un día muy agradable con los bambinos y las senoritas. In English, a good time was had by all. The sun was shining, the RV park was clean and relatively quiet, the lake was warm and clear, and we had virtually no mosquitos! Our camp site was next to a large grassy area that also had the swings and play area, and only a few steps away from the beach and fishing dock.
Lake Ki is a serene little lake, perfect for lazing around on a warm day, paddleboarding, and even a little fishing. We saw a bunch of people fishing, but nobody catching anything. We wanted to fish some off the dock, but there were way too many kids playing around it. So we kicked back and enjoyed the afternoon. A late afternoon campfire gave us the coals we needed for S’Mores after dinner. Yum!
Camping only works if there is also grilling! Burgers and hot dogs are the fuel that makes for a great campout, and ours didn’t disappoint.
Breakfast the next morning was a grand affair, and very little was left to toss or take home. Again, the 2 queen beds and dinette lived up to our expectations, with plenty of room for all 6 of us. The grandkids were out in 10 minutes, which totally out-performs their usual bedtime at home. It’s to be expected when Grandma spent almost an hour racing them all over the grassy area just before dinner.
Sunday was meant to be another lazy day, with some fishing, but the rain didn’t hold off as forecast, so we packed it up early and headed home. Even so, a good time was had by all!
