What’s an RV trip without a good storm? We were lucky yesterday to be ahead of Tropical Depression Beryl as we made our way to Emerald Isle, NC. The campground, Holiday Trav-L-Park, is really nice with grassy sites about 100 yards from the ocean. Today, Wednesday, it is pouring down rain outside.The storm is buffeting us pretty good right now and we can see huge waves out in the ocean from our RV. You may have to click on one of the pictures to see all of them.
We had one challenge yesterday. When we arrived, we heard “cheeping” and discovered a bird’s nest up inside our king pin on the RV. Luckily some one in the office knew a young woman (a Zoologist/Animal care specialist) who works for the local police and also runs an animal shelter. She arrived shortly and identified the larger of the two babies as a cowbird, whose mother had deposited its egg in a wren’s nest. The much smaller baby was a wren and the young lady promptly put it inside her shirt to keep it warm. What started out as a sort of unhappy experience turned around when we met
this caring animal specialist.
During a break in the clouds around noon, we went to the beach. The surf was pretty powerful -- no swimming today!
