Today Was MY Day, and it's NOT My Birthday
It was another hot day today. Since we don't have laundry facilities in this park we went to Rick's to do our laundry. We picked up some gyros on the way for lunch and played on our laptops while waiting for the laundry to get done. It was nice to have a good wireless connection and not worry about using too much bandwidth. Usually the kids bring their laundry to the parents' home, but in our case we bring our laundry to our kid's home. Quite a switch.
One site that I wanted to see was the owl "Molly" in a box. http://www.ustream.tv/theowlbox
I saw it on TV, and it's fascinating to watch. The guy that has the cam on her comes in and tells what's going on when she's resting or quiet. There were four eggs and two have hatched the other two should hatch before Saturday. It's wonderful watching nature at it's best. She's so caring. I'll watch when I can but not on the MIFI. It takes bandwidth, so warning for those that can't use much bandwidth.
Several people left today and several more moved in, mostly tent campers. When we walk around the park it's the older people that are the most friendly. The younger families are more preoccupied and seem to be trying to get the most out of their short vacation stay. By 10:00pm it's very quiet and very dark. There are no street lights in the park and the only lights you see are flickering campfires. One camper came in today and parked beside us, but left a few hours later. The only thing I can think of is, he has a j** that called him away. It's so great being a full timer! :)
Today Jim called and made reservations for the famcamp at Mayport Naval Base, FL in late October. So far that's our favorite location that we've been to. We'll stay there for a week while on the way to our winter Florida site. The schedule is on the right side of the blog.
We still haven't been to the dunes, but maybe we'll head that way tomorrow. I still want to hike the dunes like I did growing up.
