Weekly Wrap 95 Camping on the River

weekly wrap 95 camping on the river

I am coming to you from North Mississippi at a campground right on the river. We are here enjoying the long weekend with friends, meeting new friends and making memories!  I’ve gotten in lots of water therapy, drank my weight in alcohol #keepingitreal, met new friends and even got in some running miles so we are all good!

Weekly Activity

Being back home means my runs get shorter and honestly boring around my house compared to the campground but I did get in some.

Sunday – Rest day
Monday – 3 miles + Leg day
Tuesday – 2.7 miles
Wednesday – Chest and tri’s
Thursday – 2.5 Miles
Friday – Rest
Saturday – 4 miles

Let the long weekend begin

After a few hours at work, we hit the road just after lunch headed North to camp with our friends. We have sites next to each other, they have a boat and we were all due for some river fun together.

It was a beautiful day to be on the river

We didn’t get settled in good before we gathered snacks, drinks and hit the water. A change of plans for dinner tonight turned out to be lots of fun. We went to another couple’s very nice “camp house” via the river where we enjoyed wonderful hospitality, adult conversation and to top it off boiled shrimp out on the deck. Does it get any better?

Boy did we have a spread too!

On Saturday I did manage to get up and out the door for a run around the campground. If you saw my Instagram post you know I was excited to find a hiking trail that went along the back slough to the river. I saw some neat looking birds, an owl and ran into a few spider webs, eeek! All said and done I was able to log 4 miles.

After a nice breakfast, and bathing in sunscreen, we hit the water again and stayed out most of the afternoon. It was very cloudy at times, other times not and I was sure I’d be very crispy but the sunscreen worked!

The husband of the couple we are with plays in a band and they had a gig at a private party where we got to listen to them play. I’ve been wanting to hear them ever since I found out he plays and tonight I had a ball!

By the time this goes live, I will more than likely be out on the water again soaking up something… The weather is iffy so no telling where we’ll be.

I hope you enjoy your Memorial Day!

Tell me what you did this weekend. Any races? Celebrations?

  1. Looks like a fun weekend for you! Our weather is not cooperating at all with my plans to chill by the pool. Hoping for tomorrow! Thanks for the linkup

    • I hope you got your pool time Deborah. Its still a bit cool here for being in the water according to my book but there were plenty of people taking a dip!

  2. Congrats on an awesome week of workouts! It looks like you are having so much fun for Memorial Day weekend. I love that you always travel and go camping – so much fun! I hope that you are enjoying the water and great weather where you are!

  3. So glad you are enjoying some down time relaxing on the river and having fun with friends! My best friend is visiting from Alaska and we are running together in the morning! I haven’t seen her in three years and she has found a love for running too. I can’t wait! Enjoy your holiday tomorrow!

  4. You ALWAYS have the best adventures! I’ve never been much of a camper, but you make it look effortless and (dare I say?) FUN 😉

    • This was a nice campground too but I feel like we were so busy being out on the River I didn’t get to enjoy it enough!

  7. Fun adventures – new friends, running, food and alcohol? Sounds perfect. Love reading about your fun trips.

  8. Your weekend sounds like heaven!

    Nothing exciting going on here — although we did actually have one nice day this weekend; seemed like a miracle!

    • You know there was a chance of rain every day this past weekend but we really got lucky it rained just a bit at night but it never affected our day’s activities!

  9. Your life is one big party, I swear! I want to hang with you.

  10. You are always having so much fun.

    It’s not warm and sunny here but still nice enough to go out on our boat and BBQ on one of the islands on the lake with friends.

    • Darlene we are actually looking for us a pontoon we can do just that on! We had a ball this weekend on the River! I can see why you love your boating adventures so much!

  11. All your summer fun pictures, I just love them. Can you send some shrimp over my way?!?! My goodness. It looks amazing and I hear the South has the best shrimp 🙂
    Amy @ Life to the Full recently posted…Hello, 30! | B3 16 WeeksMy Profile

    • If it’s one thing we know how to eat! They often eat shrimp or crawfish in season here at this lake house. So often they had a custom made table where you just pour out the food and stand there and peel and eat! It was awesome!

  12. Sounds like you are having a blast this weekend! We went to a pool party yesterday, today is a much deserved pajama day. No races on the radar until October… I need to get signed up for a couple summer 5ks.

  13. Looks like so much fun girl! You definitely deserve a nice long relaxing weekend …and all the alcohol you can consume! lol

    Enjoy, be safe and hope to see you soon!

  14. I hope you are enjoying your time in the water!! I love the color on your toes!!

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend, thanks for hosting!

    • Thanks Ana! I hope you didn’t look too close to my toes, you’d see I’m in bad need of a good pedi! 🙂

  15. Sounds like you’re having so much fun this weekend! That is a big spread, love shrimp!

  16. I need friends with a boat! Looks and sounds like a great way to spend the weekend. We watched some Dragon Boat races at the beach and spent some time pool side. It was pretty perfect!

  17. Looks like a fun weekend! I hope you get some nice weather today. We have had alot of rain and its been really chilly for May.
    Lisa @ Mile by Mile recently posted…Back to Basics: Weekly WrapMy Profile

  18. I’ve been more conscientious about the animals I see on a run but I don’t think I’ve ever saw an owl, ever! Do they only come out at night? Enjoy the rest of the long weekend!
    Fairytales and fitness recently posted…Weekly Wrap….May 28 ..The CrittersMy Profile

    • I can’t say I’ve seen an owl out on my runs before now either. It was back on one of the trails near the river. I tried my best to get a picture of it but it flew off!

  19. We haven’t celebrated yet. We plan to grill later. Right now I’m just drinking coffee and plan to do a tempo run soon (on the treadmill, as usual for my tempo runs). I am excited about grilling since we got a new grill.

    Looks like you are having a great week! That lowcountry boil looks good, I just eat the shrimp and corn from ours since I don’t do sausage but a lot of people around here do them. I just love shrimp with old bay. Glad you had a good run around the campground and fun on the water too.
    Amy Lauren recently posted…Weekly Rundown: May 22-28My Profile

  20. Any time spent in (and especially behind) a boat is pure joy. Are y’all still shopping around for one? It was windy on our lake but not as bad as I expected. If fact my first “run” was really smooth. I love a good shrimp boil! Enjoy the remainder of your holiday!

    • Yes we are now looking for a pontoon instead of a ski boat. I can still fish from one and we could pull a tube so it “fits” better.

  21. Sounds like an amazing time! I love that you got so much quality time with friends and on the water 🙂 That’s perfect for Memorial Day weekend.

  22. You always have good weekends! And lovely photos. I am jealous of your water time. I got in some runs and walks this weekend but no water time. We did see some wildlife though – deer 🙂 But that’s about it!!

  23. What a fun weekend! I love following your travel journeys. I’m super jealous but it gives me hope I can travel when my kids are bigger, too!

  24. Sounds like a fun weekend to me! You looked like you were having a blast out on the water! I know our weather was a little iffy too at first but then it really warmed up! Back to the job hunt for me! 🙁
    Mary Beth Jackson recently posted…May is my Month- Week Four!My Profile

    • I wish I could give you some of my job duties. I’m overwhelmed with my regular job and now this part time job. I know it’ll all work out I just hope it’s soon!

  25. So cool! I’ve never heard of a campground on a river! Looks like you had an enjoyable time!
    Emily Renteria recently posted…RaceHer Box ReviewMy Profile

  26. Awww, that sounds like an absolutely wonderful weekend and those shrimp look amazing! We host a huge barbecue every Memorial Day weekend (on Sunday late afternoon) so we spend all day Saturday and Sunday getting ready and all day Monday cleaning up…

    Thanks for the linkup!
