Cool here, but bright and sunny, all is good!

Where are we today ?
         Wow it was cold overnight here. 26f (-4c), but only for a a few hours while we sleeping, and no frozen water lines. We are toasty warm in our house, lotsa heat and great weather for snuggling.  
          This morning the sun is shinning and we are having a great day. Walkabouts this morning and enjoying the fresh air and sunshine.
          The park is doing a lots of improvements here, new cement pads, electrical service, cabins and sewer, looking real good. Just figured out that its been two years since we have been here change is in the air.
fixing up the sites
more cabins
new cement pads
nice by the lake
         Then just did a quick trip into town a few minutes away. A new Love's truck stop just down the road with RV and truck parking, Propane and fast food right there.
loved these mini racers on the trailer here
         I just had to check out the new Kroger's Marketplace. It has to be be the largest grocery store I have even seen ! New in the last year or so and everything you can think if is there. Huge bakery and wine selections 4 isles! Fresh seafood butcher department, Starbucks, clothing, pharmacy,(drive thru too), furniture they have it all! I just walked around and checked it out.
first time I have ever seen a pop machine that takes
credit or debit cards, a cashless society for sure!
         Now back home have a bite to eat for lunch , putter around for a while them grab our books and enjoy an wonderful sunny afternoon, out of the wind.

        Around 3.45pm our friends Emile and Monique dropped by for Happy Hour, chatting solving the worlds problems while the weather is nice enough to sit outside.
         We have our supper cooking on the Weber. A nice pork roast and a couple baked potatoes. Nice that it can cook away while we are enjoying the day. When supper is done we send them home (they don't eat meat). Besides its getting cool anyway shortly after 5 0'clock.
        Just added some canned corn, applesauce and a couple crescent rolls from the other day, really hit the spot. And we have enough leftover roast pork for sandwiches and another meal.
         Hey, just wanna thank y'all for stopping by for a peak. We just love when people drop in.
         Hope you had a great Sunday too!

  1. Your temp was definitely colder then ours but if you read our post you'll know why we felt colder. Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. I read your post, not sure why you would go swimming in such cold weather, even in a wet suit.

  2. I am sure that park will look great when they are done all the upgrades.

    Isn't it funny how one part of the country will cool down as another heats up.

    We slept with the windows open last night for the first time in ages !!

    Take care ... TnT

    1. We don' mind the cold nights at all great for sleeping. WE still keep the window open even when its cold too, Like the fresh air.

  3. Oh my! It certainly was cold overnight. At least the daytime temperatures appeared to be warmer. It's much easier to heat the RV than to run the air conditioner to cool it down. We had ours on a little today and didn't like having to do it at all.

    1. Thats true, we don't much like airconditioning either.

  4. So nice to be settled in. Hope it warms up although you had a great day anyway!

    1. Everyday is good with this lifestyle, just some are warmer than others.

  5. Hey to George and Suzie - We will be heading into Castaways on Tuesday . . . we will look you up!

    Sharon and Ron

  6. need to warm up over there! Good to see the park re building.

  7. 4C !! Too cold for us!! Nice you caught up with Emile & Monique yet again.

  8. That cold weather may be heading our way this coming weekend. Hope that weather forecast is wrong... it wouldn't be the first time.
    Nice to see parks taking some money and fixing up the place.

    1. Yes gonna be pretty nice when its all done for sure.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
