Yesterday Gerri & I decided to go to the beach at Callaway Gardens and enjoy the mid-afternoon. When I worked at Callaway Gardens, I was the Recreational Food & Beverage Director and this was one of my five pieces of business to oversee. …what a sad thing (LOL). They have a putt-putt golf course, paddle boats, of course, the beach for swimming, and during the summer, students from Florida State University come up and put on the Flying High Circus. They do shows everyday but two during the week. This is their 52nd year of doing this. They are under a giant tent and the show goes on rain or shine. We haven’t gone yet this year, but we will be going in the near future; probably during the mid week since we want to stay near the campground on the weekends. We will take a lot of pics when we go and share them with you.
The lake is surrounded by white sand to create a beautiful beach. The water is also spring fed so it is good clear water which makes for a great place to swim and enjoy the summer. At the beach, Callaway has a Pavilion for shade and a concession stand for beach type foods and munchies. There is shuffleboard, a water slide and so many other type activities for the kids. Sometimes it is just nice to walk around the beach and just enjoy being outside.
Yesterday afternoon at the campground, lots of campers started coming in and Gerri & I stared to think it was Friday. There was a lot of movement during the early part of the night, but all things calmed down as it got later. It was a calm quiet night. As one person said it is not always the number of campers as much as it is the type of campers you have.
