Boxes and BBQ . . .

Today was another nice, quiet day. You can never have too many.

The park maintenance guy came back to tell us the water was back on for a while so we could top off our tanks if we needed to. He said the backhoe man was coming this afternoon but didn’t know when it would be fixed.

We’ve all been using our onboard water supply since day before yesterday, but we still had over a half a tank left after one wash load and 4 showers, but topped off anyway.

I forgot to mention the other day that Janis Thomas came by Tuesday night to drop off some delicious candy before they headed Wednesday morning for North Carolina.

Thanks, Janis. You too, Lenny.

A little later I talked to Galveston Bay RV Park to confirm that we would be arriving there one month from today, and to be sure they would have a space for us for the winter.

Next I spent some time cleaning up after Mister’s latest box devouring episode.

Mister in Box 3

I’ve mentioned before that Mister loves cardboard boxes. He likes to cram into them  and then he starts eating them. Well, not really eating them, he just tears off chunks and then spits them out. Over a period of a week or so, he’ll eat a box down to the ground.

And of course that leaves little pieces of cardboard everywhere. So after throwing out the remains of the box, I swept and vacuumed up all the bits and pieces too.

Mister will just have to wait for the next Amazon order to come in.

About 4:15 Terry called and asked Jan and I to come over and meet some guests. Nancy and Bill Lee, and Sonja, Rose, and Rueben Bristow had dropped by to visit. It turns they’re blog readers and live right down the road from our park. They gave us some great places to visit before we leave on Sunday, and we really enjoyed getting to know them. Hopefully we’ll get to see them again the next time we’re in the area.

A little later we all headed up the road to Willey’s BBQ to have dinner. It turned out to be pretty good, except their version of ‘hot’ BBQ would get them laughed out of Texas. Even Nick didn’t think it was hot. But he said he’d come back, so that’s the mark of excellence.

Leaving Willey’s we drove about 10 miles north to the closest Wal-Mart up in King George. Everyone needs a Wal-Mart fix now and then.

The park guy stopped by again before we left and said the water was back on, so hopefully that’s fixed.

Tomorrow we’re going to head south about 60 miles to check Urbanna, Gloucester, and the Chesapeake Bay Thousand Trails.

Hopefully the 40% chance of rain will hold off. We’ll see.

  1. I will be interested to hear your take on Chesapeake Bay. . .we had tentatively planned to stay there last summer, but didn’t make it that far north. We did enjoy the Williamsburg Outdoor World TT very much.. .
