No sunrise this morning it was foggy so I got to sleep in another hour. We moved slowly til the sun came out about 9:30 then it was get out and get moving.
After breakfast and some housekeeping Watson and I went for a walk over to the river to see if the dredger was working, not today. There was a group hunting oysters for a count and 2 men fishing but nothing much else going on. We walked on the nature trail where it was cooler because with the sun came the warmer temperatures. Hooray. When I got back to the ocean side I was met by Diane, the camper from Canada I had talked about earlier. She wanted to know how I made out with the leak so we talked at her campsite for a time. I was telling her and her husband about the leak being fixed but 2 more things are broken. My bathroom sink drain is dripping again. It had been fixed 2 times before but apparently not well. The drain pipe and the sink don't line up properly so when I get home I'll have my plumber fix it
The other issue is my indicator lights for the storage tank levels is not working properly. One tank registers full and I had just dumped it, so I know it's empty. The electronics for this panel is in the compartment where the water was dripping so it may have gotten wet. I'm hoping when it dries out under there all will be well. I tend to be optimistic.
In the mean time I went into an outside compartment to find the bottom soaking wet, all as a result of the water leak. So I pulled everything out, turned on a fan and with a little more sun tomorrow all should be well.
After a quick lunch Watson went in for a nap and I took my camera to the beach. There were not many subjects to photograph so I was forced to take a nap too. Delightful
When I passed the restroom there was a commotion at the outside sink. It turned out to be a couple with a portable washing machine that is apparently the latest craze in the rv community. One compartment washed the clothes then you had to put the clothes in
the next compartment to spin them dry, then back in the other side to rinse etc. Sounds like too much trouble for me. $1.25 washes a full load of clothes here at the park.
When I got back home I discovered that my new next door neighbors were a couple I met 2 years ago, also from Canada, that I enjoyed very much. They fish a lot and had given me fish for a couple of meals. Sure hope they are successful this year. It's getting to be old home week.
I read my book for a while til it got chilly so I headed in for dinner and a quiet night.
Temps today low of 58 high of 72.
