Sunday Thoughts

Riverside Adventure Trails RV Park High 64 Low 43

It was a little cooler today, but it was windy all day, which made it feel a lot colder. We were sure glad we weren't traveling today. I hope it settles down tomorrow, but we only have about 80 miles to travel.

Yesterday we went to the pan-cake breakfast. They were nice large pan-cakes. I had plain and Cindy tried the pumpkin. She said they were good. We also had 2 sausages each. All you could eat pan-cakes and sausages for two of us for $5.00, along with all the juice you could drink. A price that is hard to beat. They had a very good turnout.

The lady kitty-corner from Cindy is the quilter we met.
We talked to a couple sitting next to us. They are from near Longview, Washington. We kind of thought we were into quilt making, but they really are. She has a small sewing machine connected to a board, which she holds on her lap as they travel. They use a small inverter, and she sews as they drive. He told me about some of the cabinets he has made for her sewing room back home. He is a very talented wood worker. The pictures he showed me looked quite professional.  

Afterward we went to some yard sales. The first one was here in the RV Park, and Cindy found some nice necklaces for a good price. We found three sales others in this town, but didn't buy anything.

I filled the truck for $3.59 per gallon for diesel, which is about 20 cents less than home.

This morning we went to church, and haven’t done too much else, other than Cindy was working on some applique for one of her quilts, while I have been squaring up some blocks for one of her quilts.

Tonight I was going to smoke some of our Alaskan Salmon, but with the wind blowing it will have to wait a day or two, so Cindy is going to bake it.

Chuck and Anneke asked about the ruins at the KOA by St George. The RV Park and connecting lots were built on the Ghost town of Harrisburg. While we walked through it last year, we found a cemetery with a lot of the dates from the 1850s and 1860s. We thought it was kind of neat.

Thanks for visiting.

  1. Sounds like a good deal on breakfast and fuel. That is interesting history for the KOA:)
