Swim Day

Click for Cedar Hill, Texas Forecast

Swim Day, also known as “Regain Our Sanity Day”, turned out to be another beautiful day.

Cedar Hill State Park is located on Joe Pool Lake just minutes south of downtown Dallas, TX. The park is quite wooded and prior to our arrival, in order to insure TV reception, we wandered the entire place with a compass to determine satellite-dome-friendly sites.  In other words, RV sites that open toward the south and are long enough for our rig.  Many sites are quite short and can handle a car for tenters.  All site areas are large and most have a covered picnic table.  There are several clean bath houses with toilets and showers.  Most sites have 30 AMP electric and water.  There are two large dump stations.

We selected several sites and, upon arrival, found our third selection available.  We had a long site and lake access.  We have a path that extends about 50 yards to our “private” beach.


The girls love the spot and spent quite a bit of time there making “rocks” which consisted of mud and shells.


We had planned to tour the Penn Farm, which is located on the park property, but it was too hot.

Tinka decided to take the girls over to the designated swimming area near the park’s yacht club.


The girls had a great time, but mentioned that they like their own little beach just as well.   After dining in style on hot dogs, the girls were spent.


Now for the test, under the 5th wheel, I spotted this beetle.


I’ve never seen one like it.  It was about an inch long and just crawled around slowly.  If anyone knows the name of this critter, please let us know.
