11/3/14 Monday in Advance, NC (Forest Lake-TT)
So cold last night that our car was covered in frost. They’re predicting rain (90%) on Thursday, our travel day, so we called ROD to change our arrival time. We are now leaving Wednesday for Sycamore Lodge (ROD). When it warmed up enough to melt the frost on our car, John changed our outside water filters out for new ones (one for sediment and a carbon one for smaller bits).
We walked to the mailbox to mail our postcard to the grandchildren but it was still full of received mail that had been there since Saturday. Sheesh. So we went to the office to ask them to mail it but they were closed. In the morning? When we got back to our site I checked the bathroom notice. Starting November 1st the office is open Tuesday to Saturday. Ah.
Our big excitement for the morning was grocery shopping in Lexington, managing to also find a mailbox there to mail my postcard. Finally. How a simple thing can take up lots of time…
After our lunch of hot dogs in tortillas (yum!), we went for our daily walk with Karen/Jeff. Each time they introduce us to another neat place here. Naturally we played cards next. Karen won at “13”, then I won at “Golf” again. We split to do dinner, then got together for another game of “13”, which Karen won again! Such fun sharing stories.
Back in our coach we watched “Dancing With The Stars”. So lovely, so entertaining. Maybe it’s the Lawrence Welk Show for today’s Baby Boomers…..
