Relaxing day but busy and fun...

Where are we today ?
        Up and at it, first thing this morning. 4:30 am computing, coffees and computing with our windows open. Weather much too nice to be sleeping. 
        Our friends Pat, Rob, John and Barb (Rocky Racoon) are packing up and getting ready to hit the road, Memphis for the today. I like watching other people do that, from a distance. 
They are almost ready to go
        We said our goodbyes, hugs and stuff and see y'all on down the road. They were on their way shortly after 7:30 am. Now we have a planned quiet day, maybe. 
         A bit more computing and planning for us and quick run to the store and stock up a few supplies. Bite to eat for lunch, the realized I forgot to fill our RO water jug! HMMPH!!
         Ok another quick trip to the store and all is good. Did the standard clean up stuff today, check tires, have a shower, dump and flush sewage, and stow our Weber (suppose to rain later).
         Chat with a few neighbors here, then a vist with new friends, Ron and Sharon for a while at their site, such a super couple. Sharon keeps telling me she will get back to updating their blogBut ya know its only good to do if you are in the mood to do it. And you can get really wrapped up doing that, (I can tell you that from experience).
Sharon and Ron
         Now in the area where they are camped construction of new campsites is underway. So nice to see improvements going on in our resorts.
more new full service sites
Lotsa turtles here
         Before we wore out our welcome we headed home about 4 o'clock, began prepping supper and enjoyed a bit more outside weather trying to read our books. We kept being sidetracked with the wild life, in particular this red headed woodpecker that has been around here since we have. Such a pretty bird!

it was overcast by very warm (mid 70's)
so we just enjoying it.
          Now because of the weather forecast we decided time to eat up some leftovers. Boiled some potatoes up, heated up some leftover turkey in gravy, steamed some fresh asparagus and we have a wonderful tasty open faced hot turkey sandwich.
        I wanted chicken wings but will need to wait for a little nicer weather to do them outside.
        Hey that was it it busy doing nothing but we sure had fun doing it! 
        Thanks for stopping in for a peak!
