Saturday, November 9, 2019 - Lake Somerville State Park, Birch Creek Unit, TX, Day 3 - 0 Miles, 1965.7 Miles for the Trip
A beautiful day. It only got into the mid 60's, but clear skies so the sun felt wonderful. I walked around the loop and discovered it was 3/4 filled, mostly with tent campers. Two families moved in next to me last night. Very loud kids, but they were having a good time. They spilled into my site, but is it so large that it wasn't a problem. I do believe they have the record for the smokiest campfire, although the new couple on the other side of me is trying hard for #2.
On the walk around I took a couple of photos of some interesting trees down by the lake.

After that it was back to the trailer to do some reading. Once the outside temperature broke 60°F, I got out my chair & sat outside. Around 2:30 I braved the shower. The best I can rate it for is a C. Separate drying room, but the only hooks are 3 nails in the wall. No bench or shelf in either the drying room or shower. No shower curtain. The shower is aimed at the drying room, but a narrowed entrance to the shower keeps most of the spray off the floor. Only lukewarm water, which is a problem because the room is cold. While it may be 65°F outside, the building retains the cold from last night. In any case, I managed.
After the shower it was more reading - current book is Recursion, by Blake Crouch. An interesting SiFi on my Kindle, borrowed from the New York City Library.
Dinner was a grilled chicken thigh (actually 2 since they were small), mashed potatoes, and applesauce.
Until Tomorrow -
