Since lots of RVs and tents had moved in over the past day or so we walked around the grounds checking out all the preparations for the evening. I checked on boat rentals, visited the camp store, saw the band setting up on the stage, and watched Big Jim load his smoker with huge pork butts; all while listening to some early afternoon live music at the Pub. Then we read and relaxed for a few hours.
One fun thing was putting up the girls' fence and letting them watch all the people come and go around us. There were four young kids next to us that they really wanted to play with!
Howard Livingston and the Mile Marker 24 Band played all evening. There was a silent auction and a few live auction items along with a 50/50 raffle because they were raising money for KOA Care Camps, a KOA effort to provide camping experiences for children with cancer. I really loved his voice and the band and the island songs...very Keys like. We sat down there for several hours enjoying a beer and the beach breeze and the swaying palms and the sliver of a moon and the music...aaaaah
