Lake Jordan

Jordan Lake State Park
Poplar Point CG site #E95
Apex, NC

We made it to the lake on Thursday.  After we dropped by the boat launch parking lot, I saw a doe and her two fawns.  Gin’s folks finally are taking a vacation and have brought their MH and pontoon boat with them.  We are very lucky to have neighboring waterfront sites since you can’t reserve in loop E this year.


I think it’s going to be a quiet week end since school has started.  The next week end is Labor Day and that will certainly be busy.  We brought our bicycles and waverunners.  We’ll get all the boats in the water this morning.

I took Smudge for a walk at dusk last night and got a couple of pictures.  This doe was 50 yards away and I didn’t have the zoom lens on (of course).  I saw the rest of the herd, all 5, as she scampered off.  That’s a total of 8 deer today.


The camp sites are in a cove but you can still look out onto the main lake to get a nice view.  This was at dusk.  We took it easy the rest of the day.  It’s good to be here.

Looks like a great place to camp. Glad Smudge is feeling better and taking walks to see the deer.

Stay Safe

Looks wonderful and I'm glad ALL of you are off for a well deserved vacation. I know you'll have a GRAND time. Guess the rest of us will have to watch. But ...only for 3 more weeks. We think we'll be launched by the 17th.

Wow! Nothing like getting away from it all and taking it all with you. Pontoon boat, wave runners, bikes, you'll wear yourselves out with all that "relaxing" you're gonna do. ;c)
