I walked around and sat by the lake early afternoon. The park was bustling with activity with kids and parents packing up. The park is really quiet and I have to say I could really like it. The trees are high enough that they don't give me that confined feeling, and being mostly pine trees they don't drop stuff on the roof. Now that would be different during the season when pine needles fall. The lake is nice and calm, with boaters and kids playing in the water.
There’s also a lot of tiny shells. In my old life I would have picked them up to make jewelry or pictures out of them. But not now, they can stay where they are.
There’s mossy trees along the lake and a few throughout the park. It’s eery, I’ll always think that, but there's a calmness to them, too.
Another look at our site from another direction.
It’s been a very sad week in the RV world. Margie and Bruce, full time RV'ers, were killed by a 19 year old who ran over them with his car in Pismo Beach, CA. We didn't know them, but on their blog they listed TUMBLEWEED as one of their favorite blogs. Seeing that had a big effect on us because it made us realize that all of us in the RV world are family, whether we ever meet up or not. There’s always questions when something like this happens... questions that can't be answered in this world. This has hit the RV community really hard. We have all thought about "what if" we’re together and something happens. One thing I did was tell my sister how to get into our blog to update it. Another thing that both Jim and I did is update the emergency numbers in our phones to other family members besides each other. We never go anywhere without our phones, and we always have ID with us. It’s sad, but we do have to be prepared. Our hearts go out to Margie and Bruce's family.
Tomorrow we’re on the road to our favorite park so far, Pelicans Roost Famcamp at Mayport Naval Station, east of Jacksonville, FL. We’re both looking forward to spending a week there and watching the ship traffic. It'll also be nice to be back on a military base again. Some friends we met there in April will also be back, so it will be nice to see them again. It’s going to be another long driving day, but worth every second. The travel will be all on I-95. Sometimes it’s smooth sailing on I-95, and sometimes there's lots of traffic delays, but we’re on the way.
Thanks to everyone who take the time to post comments. I’m loving it.
