Home Away From Home

Leaving Chimney Rock

After a great nights sleep we woke up about a little after 6:30, had our coffee and “woke up” then pulled everything together to leave. We had hoped to be on the road by 9:00 and wonder of all wonders we pulled out of the campsite about 8:25. Stopped and dropped the trash off and headed to Clemmons. Interestingly enough we realized we were only about 10-12 miles from Fletcher.

This was a really nice campground, probably the quietest we have ever stayed in. Some of that may be due to it being a 55+ park. Also it appeared that some of the units were maybe week-enders who just left their rigs there. Although there were rigs on both sides of us no one stayed in them. Along with the quietness though there was little socialization. When we were out walking Thursday night we saw two couples and yesterday we saw someone walking a dog but other than that it was almost a ghost campground. Jerry said he thought part of that could be caused by the fact that there are so many park models meaning permanent people. Still it was a nice campground centrally located and we would definitely go back again. It had a nice pool but we didn’t take advantage of that.

Weather was sunny when we left but after about an hour it got cloudy which is how I prefer to travel. I can read or work on the computer easily because I can see the screen. I downloaded the camera pics and unless I missed some there are none with the goats. Drat!

Got to Tanglewood about 11:30 and had a very quick check-in. On to site #4. After we set up and had lunch we rode over to David and Jane’s stopping by the pool to see Jane and the kids. After a brief visit I went with Jane and Emma Jane to the dance rehearsal. Unfortunately as the dancers get older they get pushed further down into the program! I had planned to stay only long enough to watch Emma Jane dance and then have Jerry come pick me up. Well, she is in both acts and #17 in both. By the time she finished there were only three numbers left. We finally got back to David and Jane’s about 7 and thank goodness Jane had called David about dinner so he was picking up wings. Joan and Don had arrived about 6:00. We ate and Jerry watched a bit of the pro basketball playoffs and then we headed on to the campground arriving a little after 9:00. All in all it was a pretty long day so I went on to bed. Hopefully I can talk Jerry into going to Mt. Pilot tomorrow. I had planned a visit to Old Salem but it is closed on Mondays.
