A Slice of Heaven

Cotton Hill campsite #58

“You got any pretty sites left?” I asked the gate attendant when we pulled into Cotton Hill COE.

“A few,” he smiled.  “How many days are you staying?”

“Seven,” I answered.

“Oooooh, that cuts it way down.  Let’s see, I’ve got 6 and 58.  58 is in the Marina View loop, and it has the best view in the campground.  You can take a look at both of them if you’d like.”

“No, we’ll take 58!” I replied, figuring he knew what he was talking about.

He wasn’t lying.  Our site is gorgeous.

I was a little surprised that the lake wasn’t wider.  I’m used to the Georgia COE’s having huge expanses of water.  But there is something indefinably special about this place.

Instead of putting up both sections of the dog pen, we only put up one.  And since we couldn’t stake it down in the gravel, I bungied it to the trailer tongue and step and reinforced it with a couple of other bungees.  It works!  And both Sunny and Sheba have been wonderful about staying in it without barking.  I am impressed with how well they are behaving.

There’s a playground to our right.

Sheba has not had the first potty accident in the trailer, so I am almost ready to declare her housebroken.  At least it appears she is Casita-broken!  🙂

And she is really loving the water  here!

    We’ve been following your blog for a couple of months now. Look forward to seeing new posts everyday – you write so well, and your photos are a great enhancement. We’re new owners of a 2009 T@DA trailer, and can’t wait to hit the road. Until next year, we’re stuck just doing weekends. Got a checkmark next to this site in our COE book – looks fantastic!

    • Judy, I have never seen a T@da trailer, but checked out all the photos I could find when we were looking for a small trailer. They are so cute! Glad to meet another tiny camper lover!

      The year will fly! It’s almost half over. So it won’t be long before you can travel to your heart’s content. 🙂

      This site does get a lot of late afternoon sun. It helps if you have an awning. But we wouldn’t switch for anything!

  3. Good looking park. Glad yal’ are having a great time. Thanks for the posts.
