Lakeview Plantation

Yesterday was a great day here at Lakeview Plantation  in South Carolina.  Pam went riding in the morning, and when a friend we were waiting on for lunch didn't show (hi Pat!), she went riding again in the afternoon.

The only "problem" we have with Lakeview Plantation, as well as most of this part of South Carolina, is that there is no cell service.  It's not really a problem for me personally, as I don't have a cell phone.  Pam does.  We figured that something came up and our friend Pat couldn't make it, and couldn't call us because of the lack of service.

While Pam went riding, Megan and I took the dogs for a walk.  

On the way back, we heard a car horn honking.   It was Pat!  Ruby and Chevy recognized her right away and started tugging on their leashes.  As it turned out, poor Pat got lost (as did we) and, like us, asking for directions here was futile.  None of the locals has ever heard of the place.  It put her a couple of hours behind schedule, but she finally made it.  It was good to see her!

And we finally met Belle,  her mini-pit.   She has the same friendly temperament as our two pits.

Later, wandering around Lakeview Plantation, we visited "the lodge".  A true man-cave.

There's a large contingent from New York coming this weekend for a wild pig hunt.  I should be a great time for them.

These young'uns shot five squirrels with a .22.   That's some good shooting.   Their dad showed them how to skin the squirrels, and their mom will use them in a squirrel stew.  They don't shoot anything that they don't eat.

Pam and I sat out last night.  It was cool and clear, and the campfire felt good.  There was a full moon rising.

We're staying today and leaving tomorrow for Fort McCoy, Florida, a trip of 300 miles.  It will be a long day for Jeremiah, but his last.  He'll be at Griffin Ranch for the next few months, and with the nice weather, should get ridden quite a bit.  He'll be a happy boy!
