OFM Rig @ Amistad NRA Camping Area

2/7/23

Communicating In French

 

Adventure Location: Falcon Lake State Park Texas

Adventure Date: 2-7-2023

Tomorrow we change campsites for a week. This one we are in was only rented for a week and now the weather north of us is being difficult so we will wait another week in this much better weather area.

On a short walk this morning a nice fellow that spoke very little English needed help. He is one of the large volume of Quebec folks working their way back to Canada before their health insurance plan drops them.

What he does is speak into his smart phone and the system interprets it and puts what he says on the screen in English. Then my response was displayed in French and we have good communication. It was very successful and solved his problem.

Next item is travel vans. We must have 30 or more in here every night. Here is a good example of what we are talking about.



This is not a complaint or compliment about those types of vans or van folks just a comment on the much larger quantity of them down here this year. So far all of them we have met have friendly folks.

Today was another bright and HOT day. Here is the campsite frying in the sun this morning.



And here is the temperature later in the day.





While we were waiting on the sun to give us a grand sight this evening we found a few shells.



The biggest one was about 1.25 inches. We have no history or knowledge about shells like that being here in this part of the desert but they caught our attention.

And the sunset was another pitiful one but it was all we got.



At least we are getting sun shine each evening instead of snow.

Tomorrow will be busy with having to move the camper and dump the tanks while we have it coupled and moving. It has been about 20 days since our last dump of the tanks.

And now we are going to relax and plan some trying to have tooooo much fun for tomorrow.
