Before the rig rolls this morning.
Last evenings walk yielded some nice pictures and thoughts. The first thing that came to mind with this next picture of an oversize grill in the day use area was family get togethers with folks laughing and kids running amuck having tooooo much fun. This grill is about six times the size of a normal park grill so I expect the local grocery store would like to see it filled every night.
Since we are on a food trail, a little farther down the road was the wild grape vines. Small grapes are starting to plump out and ripen for the harvest. These should be the muscadine variety and make wonderful dark red wine and jelly.
Not quite food, but still vegetation is the old cypress stumps in the river. Many of them are host to a new crop of one type or another. Some have trees rooted in the rotted tops of the stumps. This one has a nice collection of grasses on it. This grass looks a lot healthier than the grasses drying up on the land where they get no water.
Now we switch to happiness land. This large pile of water toys is what is available to rent for playing in the river. There is yaks, canoes, plastic floats and a couple of paddle boats. Today there was a lot of them on the water since the weather was more reasonable.
Across from the boat ramp and toys this evening was a couple trying their luck at catching some fish. The conversation was soft and pleasant sounding from what I could hear. However no fish were caught while they were in view.
My path took me through the woods along the river for a soothing walk towards my home. Next to the river this park has cabins for rent. Inside is an electrical outlet, a/c and electric heat. A table and chairs sit to one side and double bunk beds occupy the back half. These are a considerable step up from the old style of half screen/half louvered walls shelters that they used to have here.
A comfortable walk and pleasant viewing brought to a close a day of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
Late Evening Edition
The trip to Sinton went very well. Traffic was moderate to light the whole way. By the time my set up was complete it was 3pm. A "dogbone" was needed for the site that was chosen. My trailer is a 30 amp connection and the site has a 50 amp connection. A quick trip to the RV supply near town and a "dogbone" was put into service. A "dogbone" is a wired adapter with a 50 amp male plug on one end and a 30 amp female plug on the other end. The overall length is about eighteen inches. Now the rig is set up and coled very well.
Several folks were still here from last May and we spent a while getting reacquainted. It was very nice to visit with Luella, Walter, Dan, Zona, Terry and Karen again. Several things have changed in the interim but mostly for the good. Today the truck got nearly filled with diesel, but the pump shut off at $100. My financial picture is needing a very careful going over and much more careful planning.
A Whataburger grilled chicken sandwich was supper. The shrubbery around here is blooming like crazy. The sagebush blooms are beautiful as well as the crepe myrtles and several more unknown but very nice blooms fill in the area well. Maybe pictures tomorrow.
Tomorrow will be very busy with laundry, grocery shopping, a library trip and who knows exactly what else. No matter what the main goal it to try to have tooooo much fun.TheOFM
