Recently, I went with the illustrious James Hornsby to a family reunion at Yogi on the Lake campgrounds in Pelahatchie, Mississippi. I’ve never actually been camping before, so it was pretty exciting! Well, I guess technically I still haven’t been camping, since we were all staying in a cabin with a kitchen, beds, and indoor plumbing. BUT IT WAS MADE OF LOGS! So that counts for something.
Our cabin at Yogi on the Lake, complete with Felled Logs.
We slept in the loft, which was kinda like being a tree house if the tree house was on the ground and had an upper level that was a loft. There was a lovely view of the lake, and possibly an otter that was hanging out in it waaaay out in the middle.
The lofty loft where we snoozed in our cabin.
Somewhere in the vast middle of this lake is an otter that wouldn’t let me take his picture
Also, I realize I’m much too influenced by Jurassic Park movies, as the Canadian Geese reminded me a lot of Velociraptors. Mostly because they would appear out of nowhere, surround you, and stalk you if they suspected you had food you might consider throwing them (Or that you WERE THE FOOD MAYBE?!).
There’s another goose somewhere. Watching. WAITING.
When we weren’t visiting family, we wandered about the nice campgrounds and posed in front of giant Yogi Bears…who for some reason had a picnic basket full of flowers instead of snacks. Totally not canon with Yogi cartoons.
Yogi made sure to have a tight grip on his basket, even though the flowers don’t look super edible.
Overall, it was a pretty rad weekend! Maybe we’ll end up back down there again one day, and replace the flower-filled picnic baskets with actual food for Giant Yogi.
