7/28/14 Monday in Florida, NY (Black Bear Campground-Private/$60/night)
I got some light housecleaning done while John watched his morning TV shows. It rained last night (no thunderstorms) and is super humid today-87%. They’re promising lots of wind this afternoon and a few gorgeous days ahead. Just in time for seeing NYC. So we took it easy today. I got the blog published before 10:30 am while John researched RV prices on the Internet.
Off to Middletown for groceries and a haircut for John. Wow, the crowds of people on the road and parking lots and it’s just a normal workday. I noticed a Verizon store nearby so we stopped so I could get a couple issues resolved. Well, here they are so busy that I had to wait-in the end for 30 minutes. John got his hair cut during that time, then we both went shopping.
Back at home the heavy black clouds were rolling in so we settled into surfing the Internet-John for RV prices and I for my emails and others’ blogs. I love the free WiFi here: available inside Miss Zanzibar and fast.
Two big 5th wheels came to set up just to our left as a big wind was blowing. As soon as they got backed in the rain started, so they sat in their trucks to wait it out. Whew! That was not so lucky, but the rain did stop a while later. They’re from Quebec and will be on our tour bus tomorrow.
This morning I saw a blue jay. This afternoon I saw a house finch couple. So cute pecking at grass seed then sitting together on a branch just outside our window. When we went for our walk around the campground after supper tonight we spotted raspberries. I walked over to the workkamping couple to ask if it really was raspberries. Yes, she said and told me where blackberries are. Nature is wonderful.
