(Maxwell AFB, Montgomery, AL) Hi 78 Lo 50 -- I hope everyone had a Happy Easter!
We weren’t sure what we wanted to do today. We thought we’d go drive around Montgomery, but with nothing open on this holiday, and wanting to save gas, we decided to stay in.
I baked my first cake in the convection oven. I heard about way of making a cake with club soda instead of eggs, so I wanted to try it. It came out perfect. It’s 1/2 the calories. (Jim says that means he can eat twice as much.) I took a box cake, stirred in 12 oz. of club soda, put it in two shallow cake pans, and baked it all for 35 mins at 350 degrees in my microwave convection oven.
I played games and Jim watched sports. I walked around the park and down the road that goes along beside the base runway. It’s really nice.
This is the laundry and restrooms.
Pavilion with grill. Lots of room for parties.
The lake, looking toward the campground.
Looking the other direction away from the campground.
I didn’t spend much time at the lake because….
I’m not fond of snakes.
A couple of rigs pulled out today and others were making preparations to leave tomorrow. There aren't very many in the park.
Jim cooked some ribs on the grill and I made a couple of side dishes. The weather was so beautiful that we ate outside on the picnic table. We’re on the way to Mississippi tomorrow, another new state for Tumbleweed.
