On Memorial Day, we decided to go swimming (first swimming of the year!) at Harrison Bay State Park. John was off work, the weather was perfect and We. Were. Ready!
We debated on whether or not to bring Rio but in the end decided to leave him home this time. (He's not a big fan of the water and will only get in up to his "knees".) It was a good thing we didn't bring him b/c it was PACKED. Should've known it would be. There were loads of people AND dogs all around and although Rio is a good boy, his bark is loud and he is big, so people can be intimidated by him. It's a shame really, as he's such a good boy but I digress.
We packed snacks, drinks and towels, donned our bathing suits and loaded in the Jeep. McKayla is starting to grasp the concept of time and kept asking why it was taking us so long to get there.....next step is the dreaded phrase: "Are we there yet?" LOL
Finding parking was a tad....interesting, to say the least. There's limited parking spots and cars were lined up along the curb. Some people apparently forgot how to park or didn't care and had taken up 2 spots in some cases.
The water was up b/c we'd had so much rain lately and that caused the little sandbar (connecting the 2 islands) to be almost under water but that didn't stop us or others from enjoying the day, it just meant quarters were a little cramped at times.
There isn't much else to say, so I'll let the pictures do the rest. Enjoy!
