Well, we got to the pond and Mom almost left immediately cuz there were sooooo many cars there was no place to even park. But, in order to leave, we had to drive down to the landing and Mom realized it is a HUGE lake so there was plenty of room for us all on the water! So we unloaded the kayaks and me and her drove back up just as someone was pulling out so we got to park.
Fortunately we went to the swampy area first cuz just after we got thru that part, both Mom and me heard a bunch of thunder!!! We hightailed it back around to the landing just as the lightening really started flashing. But...it didn't start pouring until we were all loaded up and leaving.
There was such a bottleneck at the landing that the warden was directing traffic!!! He even helped Mom put the kayaks back on the car.
I will say, it was really, really, really HOT out on that pond!! Poor Harvey was even hotter than me cuz he didn't have any hair to keep the sun off his skin. But, Mom wet us down and we were fine. We saw lots and lots of pretty flowers and dragonflies.
Even though our trip was cut short, we still were there over an hour and we did have a ton of fun!

Glad you guys got out of there before it started raining!
Glad you didn't get struck by lightning!
