When I heard about RVillage, I checked it out and decided to join. At this point they already have close to 5,000 members! It's gaining members like wildfire. One of the things I like about RVillage is that when you arrive at an RV park or campground you can "check in" on the site and post which campground or area you're in, and if other RVillage members have checked in at the same place, you'll know it. That makes it easier to meet people. There are tons of groups to join within RVillage, which gives members another way to meet RVers with similar interests. I've joined two groups, Bloggers and Singles on the Road. Not much of a joiner, I guess, but some of the people have joined many groups.
Check it out and see if this new RVing website might work for you - RVillage.
Below are photos from Riverside Campground. It was very quiet there, but over the weekend (before the mice drove us back to the main campground) there was a lot of activity - the Group Area was full - I think were scouts. At least that's what someone said. They and their leaders, though, were wearing kilts. I never did go over to talk to them and find out who they were, I was being lazy, sitting inside most of the time because of the wind. I snapped this photo of three boys coming up from the river and walking past The Palms to the Group Area. I thought it was so cute, I had to post it for you. I love the three variations of the kilt outfits.
There was also some drum music, it sounded like Native Americans were performing, and later I saw a man in American Indian dress standing in a group. They were all very well behaved and even though they were near me, I hardy heard them. And I really got a kick of seeing them all in their kilts and Native dress.
The male House Finch is nothing new, but this guy was so brilliantly red up in the tree I took some photos. At least I think he's a House Finch. Sure is brighter than others I've seen - maybe the males have more red feathers during mating season? See the white "cotton" on his chest from the cottonwood tree he's sitting in and on his claws?
He climbed up pretty high. Then later I heard another strange noise, and when I looked out I saw this bird, all fluffed up sitting on the ground in front of The Palms.
I think he's a Robin, but I'm not sure. He sat there for a while, then scurried under a bush. Do you know what kind of bird he is?
And lastly - as you can see from these photos there's not a lot of wildlife in the area right now - I tried for three days to get a shot of a white butterfly/moth and finally one landed long enough for me to get it's picture. There were a lot of these guys flying around, but they never land for long.
That's it for now - and the end of the Riverside Campground photos. Katie's stroller should be delivered tomorrow and we'll be able to walk around the campground more. I'm looking forward to that.
From me and Katie, have a great day, everyone!
