This place has so much potential but alas....

We arrived on the Wednesday evening. It was dark so lucky we used our flashlights to check out the site before pitching. There are hundreds upon hundreds of nails everywhere and so much broken glass I could hardly believe it. Hubby says that its from burned pallets. Such a shame. This location has so much potential, its beautiful but its also the local youth hangout site. Every night there were cars and trucks there playing very loud music and having fires.

On the Friday evening around 8.30pm, we decided to pack up and ship out when the guns starting blasting.

So much potential yet so far off the mark.

Mind your children and pets with all the broken glass.
