Day 84-87 - Time Off (Photo's Added)

We're in a really nice campground (with no cell phone service) and really need to do some reorganizing in the RV (and some resting in the bodies), so just took a few days off

48 °F

Logistics:

Miles Driven - 141 RT
Weather - 48 F Saturday, 50 Sunday, 70 Monday & Tuesday
Camped at Chesapeake Bay Thousand Trails Campground

Confessions:

Saturday & Sunday I just vegged (sorry, could have gotten all kinds of things done)

Narrative:

Monday - Drove to Virginia Beach to have fill valve replaced on propane tank. Also, Mom got another prescription filled and we finally found a place that was still giving flu shots - so both got poked. The RV place in VA Beach was a bit of a family affair. The work at Eric's RV was done by Eric, but his mom ran the office to great affect (& was the only RV place I'd called that bothered to return my message)

Tuesday - Finally sorted some of all those boxes of a paperwork I brought with us, got lots of stuff to mail home now. Got lots more to sort, but will have to wait until later...

In the meantime, since there is no cell phone signal here, I hiked out to the main road (abt 1 mile?) to make some phone calls. Thought it might also be fun to take the camera and get some shots of the campground (& hot tub) for those who've never RV'd.

One thing we've both enjoyed here very much is a very large hot tub. Since it's so late in the season, most of the time we've pretty much had it to ourselves.

Also there were quite a few birds here which I wanted to try to capture (with the usual difficulties)

The interesting thing came when I got to the main road. Off in the distance, I kept hearing a large bird of some sort (screeching?) I kept watching, but didn't see anything so expected this to be another missed opportunity. Finally, about when I'd finished my phone calls, I began to see a bird circling way over by the tree lines. Of course I wanted a picture, but it was quit far away and I expected it would fly even farther away. Today this was not to be, it continued to circle and actually flew quite close overhead, with this result.

No Rest for the wicked!! Oh, you've been going going going. I would guess maybe you might need a rest and regroup time, no? Hot tub hmmmm? I'm jealous.

Yes - rest & regrouping were needed, but I also fear each day we spent resting is a day of adventure lost - there are always so many things we don't get to see. Ah well.

There is way way way too much in this world to see everything, the idea is to enjo the trip and that is what you're doing. sometimes that means resting. Nice pinion action on the hawk. The woodpecker looks good too, you can at least see the markings.
