Home Away From Home

Headed to Dover, Florida

After falling asleep before 10:30 I was up by 6:00. Almost eight hours is a record for me. That was the good news. The bad news was that I gained two pounds yesterday. Wonder why? Had a quiet couple of hours, caught up on some things: financial (the payment to Tideland has finally cleared), journaling (can’t remember in what order we did things yesterday), etc. Jerry finally got up at 7:45 and then we started hoping getting showered, dressed, and packed up to leave. Leave time is 9:30 and I think we’ll make it. I took a couple of pictures of the campground sign and the main building. I want to try to start doing this to help me remember where we’ve been. I know after a while memories will become blurred and all merge together.

We pulled in and Donna and I checked our rigs in and then someone directed us to our sites. We were not side by side but on the same row with only about 5 or 6 separating us. They had no pull through so we had to stop in the street and unload the tow dolly. We put the hand two wheeled dolly on the car dolly and moved it out of the way. Jerry immediately noticed that the tires on the two wheeler needed some air but he was going to wait until he was parked to deal with it. Our neighbor, an older gentleman from Michigan came out and started chatting with us and before I knew it he had pulled out his air compressor and we added air to the tires. Jerry got backed in and we set up everything putting the “carpet” and the chairs out for the first time on this trip. After we got the inside set up Donna and Ken came down and we had ham sandwiches for lunch.

It was getting close to 3:00 so we piled in the car and went grocery shopping. Of course there was a detour so it took longer than expected. Jerry took the towels and dark clothes down to the laundry and got them washed. In the meantime I had taken some spaghetti out to thaw so I got dinner ready. Donna brought over some salad and then after dinner we had slices of pound cake drizzled with amaretto and topped with ice cream. Yummy!

Ken had forgotten to get something at Walmart so he and Jerry went back. I cleaned up the kitchen and then tried to find NCIS on television but couldn’t find CBS. Needless to say Jerry found it as soon as he got back.
Early to bed after NCIS New Orleans and slept well.
