The special morning is starting out grey and very quiet around here. In all the celebrations over this weekend I hope there has been recognition for the contributions and losses of those supporting us through the years and those currently caring for the U.S. citizens through their service.
The campground at Naylors was pretty packed on Friday. Some left as early as Sunday morning. There was a pretty good band down near the water on Saturday night and I hope that many of the campers enjoyed it.
These big holiday weekends are always a bit of a double-edged sword. You want the owners of the campground to have plenty of people down and enjoying the area. For city dwellers I'm sure that this little bit of heaven is quite a reprieve. Granted most people are in campers and not in tents, but truly this is a get-away.
On weekends such as this I know that there are lots of dogs accompanying campers and that my ever-curious Lab mutts think they rule the area. They also want to check out the base of any grilling area to see what they might find for a bit of a snack. What happens is I try to control what is rather uncontrollable and so the weekend has a bit of extra responsibility keeping track of the dogs and letting them out one at a time, or taking them out with one on a leash. This is extreme for them.
For anyone in real estate mode or soon to be in real estate mode, keep in mind that there is plenty out there for sale, but certain inventories are getting tight. As someone suggested to me recently there has been a fair amount of time when you could purchase a nice getaway on the water for $250,000 and under. Now a lot of those properties are gone and it is looking like the new projected "low price" would be under $300,000.
We have numerous excellent properties for sale and so you can either look at "Our Listings" button or perhaps the "Featured Listings" to take a look. Some real values and some exceptional properties.
Wishing you a Memorial Day full of friends and family and remembering.
