2016-05-23.Lake Gaston, NC

We are camped near the banks of Lake Gaston near Littleton, NC. But it is quite cool and very windy, so, we did not launch the kayaks Monday. The lake is lovely, though with beautiful homes ringing it and little islands dotting the lake. Roadie is having fun running around a big field and we have taken the time to watch the electric collar video so we can start our training of Roadie when we get home. Hopefully, I will get home without further injury. Hamstring is still a big problem.

We did launch the kayaks on Tuesday and it was a lovely paddle. We saw all kinds of wildlife but especially tiny goslings protected in the marsh grasses by their vigilant parents. There are lovely homes along the lake front situated high on the hills that surround the lake and connecting to the it via long, sometimes convoluted staircases. Could absolutely live along this lake though it is sort of in the middle of nowhere.

Heading home now and should be there in a few days.
