Christmas at Santee Lakes 2012
With the Christmas season here again, we set off to spend a few days at one of our favorite campgrounds, Santee Lakes. I am off work until Jan 2, 2013 but Robin had to be back to work after Christmas.
We checked into the campground on the Saturday before Christmas and we were staying until Christmas day. A friend of ours who winters in Quartzsite joined us for the stay and celebrate the Christmas holiday The weather was on the cool side and we did get some rain on the morning before Christmas. But otherwise it was all good.
The dogs, as always, enjoyed being out and about and Buddee enjoyed long walks around the lakes. We always like spending time watching all the ducks that are always on the lake and they are always looking for a free meal.
The Christmas Eve dinner consisted of Prime Rib that was slowed roasted in Karen's slow roaster/BBQ. This was a test for a Prime Rib in the roaster and it passed with flying colors.
Along with the Prime Rib were side dishes of mashed potatoes, green beans, candied carrots and a perfect ending of pumpkin pie.
On Christmas day we leisurely packed up and headed back home. Robin back to work and me to do some chores.
Hope you enjoy the pictures and wishing everyone,
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
