10/15/14 Wednesday in Gloucester,VA (Chesapeake Bay RV Resort-TT)
Since they predicted rain and thunderstorms, we decided to stay at home today, giving me a chance to catch up on my blog writing/posting. Naturally John enjoyed his TV shows (they are growing – from GMA and Kelly and Michael to now include Rachel). I even got some time for reading Internet sites. John, in his ruminations with maps and his spreadsheets, determined that if we drove to the wedding from Forest Lake (in NC) rather than The Club (in VA) it would take only 4.5 hours instead of 7 hours one way. I’m all for that! We were planning to go from The Club to Forest Lake, so it wouldn’t change our direction plans, plus we could save on “getting to the campground” miles. It would be close to 300 miles which is something we really try to avoid. The good thing is we’d be on freeway most of the time, with rest stops available. So we decided to cut out our trip to The Club. Full timing is an exercise in flexibility.
In the afternoon we went for a walk, bringing an umbrella. The rain had been giving us light fits and starts throughout the morning, so we figured we’d be okay for awhile. Well, the those raindrops picked up after we’d walked for 20 minutes, so we headed to Miss Zanzibar. Then it really let loose. Nice timing, right? I love to listen to rain while all cozy in our home. Especially when the leaks have been sealed up.
We confirmed plans to get John’s lab draw done tomorrow morning and what we’ll see at Colonial Williamsburg later. Our evening was the normal TV time.
