The Good Sam rate for one night is $30, and a month is $561. That's for a smaller back-in site, I'll post a photo tomorrow of my site. It's not really small, just smaller than some of the others, and there are some REALLY nice, big RVs here. The $561 seemed like a bargain - especially in this heat, when the A/C will be going all day. I felt a little guilty making this decision after just spending a month at Santee Lakes in Jan/Feb, and I have to admit I'm going through boondocking withdrawal, but I'm glad we're here for a month.
a meeting room and kitchen I can use if I don’t want to use my RV oven in this heat,
a pool and spa,
a small work-out room,
a little fenced dog park where I can play ball with Katie,
and propane on site that I’ll get when I leave.
They even have a community computer for guests, free of charge. And they pick up any trash bags left out before 8:00 am so you don’t have to walk to the dumpsters!
They also have a laundry with six washers and dryers. They are $1.50 each, and don’t accept coins, you pay at the office and they give you a card that goes into the machine when you use it. I did my laundry this morning, and while the wash was going, I walked down the hall to the shower, and when I was done the washing machines were just finishing and I put the wet clothes into the dryer. It worked out nicely. Everything here is spotless.
I spent this morning cleaning and vacuuming The Palms, then did the laundry and took my looong shower, and this evening I put out my rugs, chairs, American flag and solar lights, so I'm all set up and ready to relax. I think the weather forecast says the temps are going to be going down, but if we have some hot days in the next month, I might even try out the pool. I've heard the hot tub is really nice on cool evenings, too.
The RVers here seem to be upper middle aged to older (like me). I haven't seen any kids yet, and the whole park is very neat, quiet, and friendly.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO GRAYDIN AND DREW!
Saturday was my youngest grandson, Graydin's, birthday. He is now 3! I called to wish him a Happy Birthday. They were having a busy day with his older brother's Little League game, then the family was going out to a place that has pizza and games. I was there for Kennedy's 9th birthday, and Graydin loved playing the games where you sit in the "car seat" or "motorcycle seat" and drive. The road is on the screen in front of you and he loved that. He was turning the steering wheel like a pro. I'm sure he had a great time on Saturday.
I haven't gotten any photos yet so couldn't put any in this post, but I'm sure they both had great Birthdays!
That's it for now - I hope you all had a nice Monday. :)
