If you are in need of a break from all the politics and are just wanting to spend some quaity time in the beautiful outdoors with the family before the kiddos start heading back to school, why not come see us at Double Lake and say "Hello" to nature?

The last few days have been so much cooler, with all due thanks to the recent showers. Since Monday, we have had 1.7 inches of rain and we are expecting intermittent rains for the next couple of days. The showers have been very brief and just enough to be appreciated by us humans, as well as the wildlife around! The grass is also greener already. It's all good, so hoping to see Y'all real soon!
