We have been on the go a lot lately, so when we awoke to a heavy overcast yesterday morning, we decided that it would be a good day to stay at home. I had a lot of writing to do and Terry wanted to plan her next weaving project.
Except for the fact that we couldn’t get online to check our e-mail, it was nice. I knocked out another thousand words on my next Big Lake book, Terry was busy doing her thing, and we watched a couple of movies on TV. It was frustrating not to be able to look up things when I needed to; I guess I really didn’t realize how often I use the internet to research things like what years a certain model of car was made, or in this case, where the spare tire is mounted on a certain car. I just take it for granted.
Today the directional antenna I ordered on Greg White’s advice is supposed to be delivered, and hopefully it will make a difference. Greg said it did for him when they were gate guarding out in the boonies in west Texas.
Terry and I have been amused watching the parade of RVs that back into a seasonal site across from us, appear to get completely set up, and then leave a few minutes later. I don’t know why there isn’t a sign on it or the guys at the guard shack don’t tell people it’s reserved or have it designated on the campground map or something, but the rigs keep coming and parking and then leaving a few minutes later.
Except for the poor internet, we really like Whalers Rest and we sure appreciate our friend Nancy Kissack tipping us off to this RV site. I think it’s the best one in the whole campground. It’s nice and level, our satellite TV works great, and we go to sleep every night to the sound of the surf crashing on the beach across the highway. Life doesn’t get much better than that.
