A lot has happened since my last blog so I will try to give the Readers Digest version.
I wrapped up my stay at Thousand Trails with my girlies, had a wonderful visit from my Indianapolis cousins Dave and Nancy Mallon, went back to Camping World to have the carburetor replaced in my generator and headed west.
I have included a portrait of my friends and their dogs, assorted pictures from TT and some pictures from my current campground.
When I left TT to go to Lake City and generator repairs I was going to spend the night in the parking lot at Walmart but at 1 pm there was a crowd already and a very busy store so I called the campground that I would be going to the next day and they did indead have a site available. There was trouble with the generator running smoothly so I didn't get on the road til 4 pm and it was a 2 1/2 hr drive. But the drive was easy and just after dark I pulled into the driveway, unhooked the car, and parked the camper in it's designated spot. All
this time poor Watson was having a fit. He had had enough in the car, camper and repair shop and it was past dinner time. I just plugged in and took him for a walk to the dog park where he ran around a little then wanted home for dinner. That accomplished, he settled down and just fell asleep.
I hooked up the cable for the tv, had my dinner while exploring the 75 channels available, a real treat on this trip so far. Having been on the go since 7 am, I was exhausted and fell asleep in no time.
I woke up the next morning thinking I had missed sunrise but no, it was only 6 am. I couldn't go back to sleep so I got up and started the day. Watson thought I was nuts.
My camper is facing the Gulf of Mexico and it wasn't long before there was a red glow in the east. I took the first pictures through the windshield but as I sat up front the window started fogging up, it was just 42 degrees outside. So I had to venture out myself and snap away. It was just
A flock of Ibus flew by then came back around and landed right in front of my camper and proceeded to search for breakfast. They were joined by a great white heron and a few snowy egrets all eager for a share.
A little later a barge came by and proceeded to replace a pilling on the dock here at the campground. It took less then an hour, I was very impressed.
It warmed up to 64 and in the sun was quite warm. I walked Watson but he was still grumpy so I left him here and went exploring and stopped for lunch at a locals spot. The food was ok but not special and I headed home to spend the rest of the day with Watson hoping to better his mood.
It was very relaxing and especially delightful sitting in the sun, there hasn't been much of that since I got to FL.
Super bowl tonight!!
