This is a very affordable RV park. It's on four levels, most of the come-and-go people are on the first level where I am, close to the office, dog park, laundry, picnic area, and other amenities. There are many year-round residents, a few on this level, but most on the lower levels. There are different size sites, some are back-ins, just plain full-hook-up sites like mine, some have a concrete pad, some are drive through, others have a shade structure. On the lower levels the sites are wider and longer and some have storage sheds. They are priced differently by the type of site.
Below is the office which includes a really nice patio on the side and to the rear of the building. One evening when Katie had tons of energy and wanted to run, I took her there and let her off leash (which is allowed - it's a fenced in area) and she ran like crazy down the lawn, along the patio and back. She was so excited to be running on lawn - actually running at all. She was so happy.
The building has a laundry on the right side, outside the laundry door is a small room with a couch where I waited while my wash/dry cycles were going. It has a bookcase full of audiobooks, books and magazines. The building has bathrooms with large showers, a very large kitchen/meeting room, a smaller room housing the library, where there are books and videos, and also where the mail is delivered. Everything is decorated nicely and very well kept and the staff here are all very friendly and helpful. By the way, in the office they sell all kinds of things - RV accessories, some food treats, and they even have a freezer with Schwan's frozen foods you can buy. They've thought of everything.
After her run, I put Katie back in the stroller and we walked home.
In addition to the RV sites, there are three park models for rent at a three day minimum. One is 1-bedroom, and two are 2-bedrooms. It's nice for the full time residents here, or even people like me moving around, to have these on-site where friends or relatives can come and visit for a few days or longer and be right here where we are.
As Katie and I were taking our afternoon walk one day, we saw a snake on the path. I wasn't sure about him - he wasn't moving, but looked like he was alive. So I took a small rock and tossed it his way and he didn't move. I'm not up on snakes, his tail didn't look like rattles, but... I still didn't want to step over him.
I saw this large flowering cactus along the road, too.
I remember driving around the campground with my friend, Hazel, exercising her Greyhounds. She would talk about her blog, her followers and the people she followed. She communicated with many of them, and one that I specifically remember is Charlie. Hazel thought it was so interesting that the DOG wrote the blog posts, and she thought he was so funny. If there was a recent post from Charlie, she always related to me what he said. And Charlie: she felt bad that she thought you were a Greyhound. And embarrassed! She said you set her straight - so funny. :)
Thanks for following along with us, Charlie. Katie is so happy to have another dog along on our adventures! :)
So... tomorrow morning we are heading north to Storrie Lake State Park. It's cooler there and we will be more comfortable. I wanted to stop overnight at Albuquerque, but it's going to be blazing hot there, so we might just push on through to Storrie Lake. We'll see how it goes.
From me and Katie, have a great Sunday, everybody! :)
PS: I couldn't resist, it's so uncanny...
