Welcome also to hil, I don't see a blog listed for you, hil, but I'm very happy you are following long with me and Katie on our adventures.
I think there is another new follower, but I can't figure out who it is - the number went up by three, but I only see diane and hil. If you are a new follower and I haven't found you, let me know in a comment. : )
So...yesterday I unhooked the water and electricity and battened down the hatches and off we went to shop. First stop, Walmart. Tuesday was such a weird day.
I parked back at the end of the parking lot and went into the coach to tell Katie I'll be right back, look out the side window, and this is what I see just driving up and parking:
Weird - they left the campground today and I was wondering where they go. Well...
When I went into Walmart, I looked out the glass windows, and they were gone. Freaky.
So then I get a cart and start walking, looking for food. It looked like a big store, but it turns out it wasn't a Super Walmart. I'm heading toward a register to ask if they have any milk, etc., and there checking out at that register are Donna and Russ. I rammed Russ with my cart to get their attention. Gently, of course. It was so funny. So they re-directed me to the local Safeway, where I got my food. Is it a small world, or what?
I drove a few miles to the Safeway and parked at the end of the parking lot where I could get two tandem spaces. I had to pass some shops to get to the Safeway and found this American flag in a really cute store called The Shamrock. It was in front of the store with other garden flags:
So, I buy the flag on it's holder and I'm carrying it to Safeway, like a VERY patriotic American. I get one of the little carts, and attach it to the back to keep it out of the way. You can imagine the curious looks I got. And then I walked all the way back to The Palms with the flag flying in the breeze. I had to laugh at myself.
Later in the afternoon two Park Rangers stopped by to talk to Ginny, but she wasn't back to camp yet. They told me the Sheriff dropped the man from the restroom off at a detox unit. I was really happy to hear that - for his sake and for ours. Ginny was glad also when I told her. I'm sure she slept better last night knowing he wouldn't be back.
The Rangers came by again around 8:30 this morning to talk to Ginny before she left. They were interested in what she saw the man from the white bus doing with the porta potty contents, which was clearly against the rules. She's packing up now and will be on her way to complete her vacation in other campgrounds.
Another beautiful, but weird, day in Eugene, Oregon.
This is my favorite campground so far. It feels like I'm living in the middle of a beautiful park. Ginny said the traffic noises bothered her during the night, but I think that's because she's in a tent; they didn't bother me at all. The weather here is the frosting on the cake, couldn't be better.
Today we're all hooked up and probably won't leave the campground until we are at the end of our 14 day reservation next week. I'm going to take it easy until then and act like a retired lady.
From Me and My Dog, have a great Thursday, everyone! : )
