Pymatuning State Park

I always love going to Pymatuning State Park and seeing the big lake. Last week I took my cats, my SO Jerry and his dog Hoby camping. We like the Ohio campgrounds. The neighbors were friendly and helpful.
Donna and Ken drove over on Fri. and took us to the marina in PA where we rented a pontoon boat for an hour. That was fun. It was Hoby's first boat ride and he took it in stride as he always does. He is a very adaptable dog.
We were surprised to see some more friends back at the campground. The Rayl's have a new camper with lots of space due to the slide out. We cooked our salmon and steak on the grill and Donna brought sweet corn and homemade bread. We even had "Some'mores" for dessert along with blueberry pie Ken brought. This was camping at its best!
Sat. I attempted to swim in the lake but it was too cold. Later on the rain came and sent us inside for the night. We watched a couple of John Wayne movies and stayed nice and dry.
Sun. while we were packing up to go home the temp. went up to the 90's and the humidity was right up there too. Then I went back to swim in the lake and found it to be colder than Sat. (because of the rain) but much more enjoyable because of the heat. I stayed in for awhile talking with the Rayl kids and splashing around. Then, off to the showers and back to the camper to finish packing up.
We got home in an hour and were able to unload everything that was necessary. What a great vacation!
