3/13/15 Friday in Robert, LA (Passport To Leisure-RPI ($11/night))
All night it rained. Sheesh. We’re SO grateful that our closet leak was sealed. I still love listening to the rain but it does tend to wake us up more often during the night. This was more constant than stormy, but we did have a spell where the wind blew fine rain. Here’s a glimpse of our side yard this morning. Guess how that leaf got on our window…
Knowing that we’d have lots of rain this morning, I happily settled at my lap top (John with his) and organized all the information on our trip to Hawaii. We’ll be visiting 2 islands with another RV couple so it’ll be more complicated than usual. Because of the 2 islands we’d be arriving at one place, then departing from a different one so I thought I had to buy 2 one way tickets. I found out I could call our trip “multiple cities” or “open ended round-trip” and get the savings not available with one way tickets. I even had one trip scheduled, then was able to cancel it to get the pair of trips scheduled as one. I did some laundry during all this.
In the afternoon I worked on the blog while John continued his computer interests. We got our first peak at sunshine around 2. That inspired us to get out for our grocery shopping. Wouldn’t you know, it rained hard on our way. Not for long though. Grateful the store was just 9 miles away.
All this rain reminds me of the last time we were near New Orleans. Massive rains then too. That’s when I got up at 3 am and had to keep emptying our “water bucket” every 20 minutes until I gave up at 7 and told John it was HIS turn. Ah, memories.
