Yep, Pin Hunting again.
We’ve come to really enjoy this work. It’s fun to get out and hike in the woods, enjoying nature and accomplishing an important task. We’ve refined things to make our treks easier and more fun.
We follow marked trees along the boundary lines to get to the survey pin locations.
There are many club communities along Lake Thurmond that are close to the COE properties. Today, we went to the Interstate Club to survey the property lines.
With all the heavy rains the area has been experiencing recently, the level of Thurmond Lake has risen significantly. Many areas are flooded.
Most of the docks are under water, too.
The COE boat access ramp docks around the lake are also under water. Thankfully, they have been taped off to block access to the public. Wouldn’t want someone to accidently get wet trying to walk out on the dock… ;c)
As we drove through one of the communities, we had to slow way down.
We kept our work day short, because we had a New Year’s party for all the Volunteers at the Rec Hall. Everyone brought some light snacks. Of course, we didn’t feel too light after eating all of them.
We had a big card game that went past midnight into 2014. Lots of fun and laughter.
And what would a New Year’s Eve party be without hats?
Mike was a little surprised at my hat.
I’m going to audition for a role on Duck Dynasty.
We got a picture of our little granddaughter Rebekah in Missouri wearing her New Year’s party hat.
Yep, the acorn truly does not fall far from the tree!
