I sure don’t know where the time has gone but I suddenly realized I haven’t updated my blog for a couple of days so thought I had best get at it. The weather has been nice, Tuesday was sunny but the wind was cool but today was a nice warm sunny day with a high of about 78F.

Yesterday we had a great drive

This Was Typical Scenery

and we are now at Red Shoes RV Park which is part of the Coushatta Casino complex. The park IS NOT well marked, we drove through the casino area first, got turned around and out, and drove down the road a bit and there was a little sign saying RV park – we almost missed it (and we didn’t feel bad as both Bob & Brenda & Ginny & Gil did the same thing!). Anyways, the park is really nice with big long sites and as we pulled in to our spot Brenda & Bob we out waiting to meet us and say hello.

We got unhooked and set up then went over to sit on their patio to get acquainted, they are a very nice couple from Chatham, Bob is retired and Brenda still works part time but takes 6 weeks holidays in the winter and they come to Apache Junction Arizona. They met Ginny & Gil in Oklahoma last winter on their way home and when they heard Ginny & Gil were coming here decided to meet up with them again for a couple of days as they are on their way home again – neat.

Ginny & Gil arrived around 5 and we were all sitting out waiting to greet them so after they got set up they came over for a late happy hour. I think it was about 7:30 before we had dinner and with all the visiting it was 11:30 before everyone headed home – guess we were all having a good time!

Brenda & Ginny

This morning I headed up to the laundromat to do some laundry and when I got back everyone was at our place visiting with John and waiting for me as they were going to walk up to the casino. John was busy doing some stuff and passed but I quickly hung up a few clothes, got some money and headed out with them for the casino. The casino was very disappointing as they didn’t have any incentives re meals etc. – the buffet dinner was $25 and we weren’t about to pop for that so we played the machines for a bit then headed back.

Bob & Brenda had come back ahead of us so on the way back Ginny & I decided we would do pork tenderloin etc. for dinner but when we invited Brenda & Bob they wanted to go out for dinner instead.

We went over to Brenda & Bob’s for happy hour then they headed into town for dinner and Gil started the pork tenderloin and we had a delicious dinner at Gil & Ginny’s. Brenda & Bob came in when they got back and it was another evening of lots of chatting and again about 11:30 when we got home –too late to worry about doing the blog.

As always, the last two days have been great gifts here in the sunny south and we look forward to another good day tomorrow.
