Cooler today, mostly sunshine and no more tornado warnings, makes for a wonderful day !

Where are we today ?

          After the tornado warning last night today is a much better day. Slept later this morning after a later night did not get up until 5:45 this morning! That is almost unheard of for me, feels like I missed the best part of the day.
         But did get to watch this robin outside our dining room window this morning for a bit.
looks like she is ready to lay some eggs
      Now my first walkabout here, got 3 miles in today. The campground by the water is still empty only water and electric there will be very busy in the summer.
           The pics below,  looks like the vine is going to take over  this tree.
vine is moving all the way up
           Now saw this monster looking thing in the lake. Shark?  Snake ? or maybe a tree? Lochness monster?
         They also have quite a few nice cabins here to rent and a few are occupied.
       Afternoon walkabout at the Gazebo down by the lake, wonderful views here.
that is the sailboat bridge into Grove,
 in the distance
         Then relax in the sun enjoying our e-readers for a while. Much nicer than yesterday.
nice neighbor lady stopped by and Suzie got another
doggie fix, this one is Mickey
        Then as usual, time to fire up our Weber Q 100 to grill this monster chicken I picked up today. Good deal! 6.5 lbs only $4.90. It will take longer to cook planned on 2 hours because of the cooler day and the wind. And 2 hours is what it took.  Done perfectly and so tasty. Lotsa leftovers that I had planned for as well. Meals on the road.
       Fried up the leftover potatoes and cabbage from our corned beef on Easter sunday, added a small salad and it was so tasty.
sure did the trick
           Saved the chicken carcass in the freezer, to make some chicken noodle soup on down the road  when we hit cooler temps. Now we are on the road in the morning for a couple of long travel days and should be back home next Tuesday. Only 1,058 miles to go.  At least that is our plan.
         Thanks for stopping by today. No tornadoes today like yesterday, so all is good here !

  1. It looks like you are coming home earlier than originally planned. Make certain your propane is full because the Weather Network is showing cold for our area and colder further north.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Our propane and gas is always full, when we cross the border, but we can get propane in Canada too.

  4. It's no fun traveling in bad weather. Hopefully, it'll be nothing but smooth sailing for the rest of your trip north.

  6. Hi George and Suzie; Nice to be able to sit and read your posts when I want rather than in a rush. What a change that is! Glad you are safe from the weather now. Those puppies sure love Suzie, eh? and visa versa! Take it slow!

  7. Just stay away from all those tornadoes so you and your home doesn't end up in Oz (and I don't mean Australia). :cD
