Running in the Rain

We arrived at Lake Wateree State Park in Winnsboro, SC and were delighted with our campsite. Situated overlooking the lake, with lake access for the dog, it just could not have been more perfect. Gypsy has become quite the swimmer. She’s a Labrador, with webbed feet, so swimming should be second nature. It took some frantic thrashing and splashing at the beginning, but after being encouraged to go deeper into the lake, with each toss of a stick, she soon segued into a graceful, swimmer’s rhythm

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.”

– Vivian Greene.

We have been spoiled with perfect weather for most of the journey. So, it was a bit of a bummer when the rain began to fall, but I decided to dance in the rain. I put on my running shoes and took off for an amble through the park. The showers were initially cool and refreshing, but by the time I returned, I was drenched and a bit chilly. The hot shower and warm clothes felt like being wrapped in a warm blanket.

It’s not going to be an active stop but it’s perfect for reading, blogging and playing a few games of Scrabble.

Next stop: Douthat State Park, Virginia

Stay tuned….
