We spent all of Friday dodging the sun. The temp was a grueling 103 degrees in the shade and 115 degrees in the sun. We had a great view looking over Banks Lake but it was just too hot to enjoy. Just sitting doing nothing we were sweating. Ron does not like to sit around but the heat slowed him to a halt.
There was a variety of watercraft on the lake. There was a group of young people on a double-decker pontoon boat having a blast. They were signing and kept on partying until the wee hours of the morning. Surprisingly we liked the music and were happy to hear them having such a great time. The young couple tenting next to us weren’t so enthused. They found the music and noise annoying.
Around 9 PM the temp started to drop and surprisingly the projected temp for the night - 66 degrees. It was and we were able to sleep well.
