8/22/15 (Saturday) in Bend, OR (Bend/Sunriver RV Campground-TT)
Another gorgeous smoke free day, but getting cold (39 degrees) in the am and hot (85 degrees) in the pm. That’s what comes with high elevation (4185 ft) desert climate. Spokane is similar, but at around 1500 ft the high/low differences aren’t as great.
Not much to report – up late, did Wii yoga for the first time in our rig, then worked on the blog.
After lunch we relaxed, then enjoyed sharing a Rocky Road ice cream sundae. Yum! I then watched classes on Hungarian Folk Dancing and Rhythm Dancing, while John went back to our RV for some TV shows.
Researched some of our campground reservation plans until supper. Seriously considering canceling our reservation at Emigrant Lake -The Point RV Park. It looks like a very nice park BUT we really would need to take Hwy 230 to get there and that isn’t looking like it would be open for sure.
After supper we watched the belly dancing entertainment. John left at the half time break (“to each his own”) while I stayed for the second half. Lots of fun -for me!
8/23/15 (Sunday) in Bend, OR (Bend/Sunriver RV Campground-TT) Fun Singing With Church Choir
We went to St. Francis of Assisi Church in Bend. Surprise, surprise, they invited anyone in the congregation to come join the choir. Naturally I couldn’t resist and got right up there. It was so much fun. Poor John got left alone, but that happens most of the time at our home church. He has a hard time carrying a tune. We’ll be here for another 2 Sundays so I hope we make the drive to Bend those days. We got our shopping accomplished after Mass.
We relaxed at the rig until 3:30 when we walked to the lodge for the “Hot Tub Social”. Well, nothing happened at 3:30. We kept waiting and a lady showed up. She was late because someone had got lost on their tube ride down the river, so she’d been trying to help “collect” them. Anyway, eventually we (all at the adult pool area) were treated to our own box of chips and salsa. Best of all, John and I had a good time getting to know a couple from Lebanon, OR who gave us tips on more places to visit while we’re here. Interestingly, they have a “Blu Boy”/suitcase for carrying waste water but only use it for their black tank. Regarding their gray tank water: they take showers at the restrooms, wash clothes in the laundry, and toss their dish water to the nearby vegetation. They figured all the tent users did that. We didn’t, nor did we with the tent trailer. John would haul a bucket of that water to a toilet. That water surely shouldn’t hurt vegetation, when there aren’t phosphates in it.
