Neighborhood Tour


Adventure Location:

Decatur, Alabama

Date: March 1, 2024

(Same starting line as yesterday.)

It has been a dreary cold damp nasty day for most of the day. But today the OFM did not even try to get in a walk except to the office to transact a bit of business. But let us start at the beginning. The weather rained gently but for most of the day. So since we were already water logged we are giving a wonderful tour of the Castle's home site that we really like, especially since the neighbors are fantastic.

Here is the view looking to the back of the site into the woods from the entry door (westerly).

Then we stepped out into the light rain and walked to the front of the Castle and looked south on the campground road.

Then we hiked all the way to the north side of the Castle (25 feet) to get this picture of the utilities side of the Castle and the side yard on that side.

Then we needed to visit the office for camping business so we walked the hundred feet or so to the office door and took this picture of the inside lobby. They maintain a small general stuff including foods and hard goods campers might need. The campground is about five miles to a Walmart Neighborhood Market so forgetting something at the grocery store is easy to fix.

All the folks that work the Office and store are extra friendly and helpful.

To stay in out of the rains and cold we worked on the next coloring. It has a working name of DESERT BIRDS but will likely will get a new name when it is finished. Here is a view of it in well UNFINISHED effort. The lighting is way away from what it will have for the finished coloring. It is a 3.5” x 4.5” size coloring. It is ready for the initial coloring to be modified/changed/or finagled with as much as we want to get the mood set to what ever our final choice. That usually takes about three weeks of piddling and messing around with the whole color scheme to get the OFM happy with it all. 

Everyone kick back Texas style and get in some serious relaxing this weekend.

  1. It's been a long time since I saw that much standing water in campground. It could be sometime before you can leave without floating away.
    The Cactus Wrens and Saguaros in bloom are coming along. When finished you'll have a wonderful picture. the end result will show you were having tooooo much fun.
    Stay Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.
