First Monday Trade days

Today we went to Canton, TX about 25 miles south of us to the monthly "First Monday Trade Days". This has been going on in this town since the late 1800's. The circuit court convened every first Monday, so people from all around came to town to buy, sell, and trade. There is one main venue that has almost 28 miles of walking in streets and through many buildings. We didn't walk that much. The vendors are open at 9:00 AM Thursday thru Monday and sell every kind of stuff. We didn't buy much, but we had a good time.

On the way home, we picked up Charley at the groomers in Wills Point and headed over to Lake Tawakani State park for a look. What a super park to camp in. There are seventy-eight sites, some long pull-thru's. Many have 50 Amp and sewer connections. Nightly rates are $24 for 50A/W/S. I don't know about the 4th of July weekend, but the park was not crowded today.
