Camping in the rain

Between Mammoth Caves and Fort Boonesborough State park it rained. And rained, and rained. This was not just a soft gentle rain, no, it was a downpour that lasted all. day. long. We steadily drove east in hopes that it would be over when we got there. We had a wet tent, and hoped that it would be dry enough to set it back up for two more nights. We even thought about driving straight home. But, no Fiona was counting on seeing the Kentucky horse park and had waited the whole vacation for it. We had to stay.
As you can see it did stop. At least for a while. There were huge puddles everywhere, and so much damage from the flooding. This area had had enough rain. Parts of the campground were still closed from the damage.We managed to get our tent up and a dinner made when the rain came again. I washed the dishes in the rain and then we went to Wal-Mart for a while. Our tent never leaked so we were able to sleep. It was muggy and hot but we were so tired it didn't matter.
412 While we set up the tent the children found the puddles. Who can resist the mud when there is nothing else to do? 406 408410407Eating desert and trying to keep dry.  413This is the stuff memories are made of.
