It's really hard to believe how fast things can get cluttered in a relatively small space. It seemed there were supplies all over with no home for them. I had to get a little creative but found places for all the loose ends. I felt much more relaxed with a neat and semi clean living space so Watson and I took the trash to the dumpster and walked to the river side of the park.
There was a machine floating in the lagoon so of course I had to go investigate. It is a machine that dredges the water channels and floats useing large air tanks on the sides covered with pieces of wood looking like the tracks of a bulldozer. Pictures The bucket is wider and more shallow than a traditional shovel with holes in it letting the water run out. I'd like to see it operating, maybe Monday. Interesting.
One the way home I stopped at a neighbor whom I have known for the the last 2 years. They are from Ontario, Canada and spend the winter in Florida. It seems we share the same weeks here so it was nice to
visit and see them again. They have 2 campers. One is a class A (bus) for their winter travel and then for summer they have a PleasureWay like mine. They can go to most parks in Canada with the smaller one.
On my return the weather was deteriorating so we headed inside for a nap.
Sunday was cloudy and windy with a high temp in the mid 60s, not beach weather. I had helped 2 people across from me with a water issue to find out it was their very first time camping in their trailer. Joanne wanted her mother to enjoy camping so she bought a trailer and brought her mom from Orlando to Flagler about 1 1/2 hr drive for the weekend. Joanne did a really good job backing the trailer into it's spot and before long they had a nice little camp set up. She was nervous about dumping for the first time so I said when she was ready to call me and I'd come and watch to make sure she did everything right. And she did. It was a wonderful first camping trip.
Back at my camp I noticed water dripping on
the ground from somewhere in the camper. I first thought it was from the roof where ac water can gather, then thought it was the refrigerator hose blocked, none of those. As it turned out there was a water pipe leaking so I called the local repair guy and he was working in Daytona at the speedway. I ended up bringing the camper to him and he and his young assistant were about to fix it in less than 5 min. It was a loose connection. I have got to be more brave about attacking a problem. He did give me a tip about my hot water heater that may prove to be worth the repair price.
On the way home I did grocery shopping then home to reconnect everything, reposition the dog fence, fix the rug, put away the groceries and collapse.
Sunday night and PBS hooray.
