The one thing that could put the kibosh on this is bad weather. But, I went to The Weather Channel’s website and the five day forecast for Lakeside says clear skies Saturday night.
The other thing that could cut into the fun is that the staff at Lake Jennings requires everyone to have a lantern on after 7 p.m. – so boaters don’t run into each other and so they can be sure that everyone comes back by 10 p.m. But, if you find a quiet spot with no boats around, who’s to say that you don’t turn down your lantern for stargazing.
There’s one more thing to consider, which is hopping into your car at 10 p.m. driving across Chet Harritt Dam to your campsite, building a campfire, roasting marshmallows and gazing at the stars into the wee hours.
What a weekend! But, you probably won’t be the only one with this great idea so go to lakejennings.org or call 619-390-1623 and reserve your campsite.
