It's Winter!

Mom went to the beach today and it sure looks cold, don't you think?




It is not as cold as it looks.  It is in the low 60's.  It rained here on Friday and Saturday and it sounds like we will have more rain for the next three days.   We are happy that the only white stuff we are seeing is sand though.

Mom wrote in the sand, but she had a typo.  She was pretty happy with her creation, but then she saw the mistake.  BOL!


No typo on this one, but not as pretty.
She did a third one, but just as she was finishing, a wave washed it away.  She didn't see the wave coming, so it got her too.  I wish I had seen that.  BOL!

Here is a field of birds.
Scout and I have been running, digging and resting.  Yep, nothing has changed. 





There is a man here in a golf cart who has been giving us treats.  Scout finally accepted one from him today.  She was holding out for something better than a Milk Bone. Silly Scout!

Old Time Soda Fountain and Medical Museum

Mom has been wanting to eat lunch at a place that is described as an old time soda fountain.  Today was the day.

Stacy's Old Tyme Soda Fountain




Root Beer Float
Mom said it was fun eating there.  A pharmacy shares the room. The pharmacy opened in 1929.

After lunch, Mom walked down the street to the Holmes Medical Museum.  The building was the actual first hospital in this county.  It opened in 1936.  The museum is free to visit.  The second floor still has many items that were in the hospital.

This was the delivery room.

Surgeries were performed in here.
New mothers stayed in this room.


Incubator
This is where the meals were prepared.  It has been updated.

Waiting room/conference room

This was the nurses' quarters.

The first nurse.
There were lots of medical instruments, but apparently Mom didn't take photos of them.

She said she was a little nervous because she kept hearing the floor squeak, but she thought she was all alone in the museum.  Then a man appeared and said "Isn't this great?!"  Mom said it was and it was really great that it was him that she was hearing walking around.  BOL!  She said it really was an interesting place to visit.

After Mom got home, we did our normal afternoon thing which is catching some rays outside.  We then went to the dog park. We ran, we dug and we relaxed.


I'm relaxing in the hole I dug.  Fun times!

The Tree Has Been Trimmed

Okay, well the tree has not really been trimmed.  It has been taken out of the shoebox that it lives in the rest of the year.  BOL!

Our ornaments are too large to go on the tree, so we just put them under it.
Isn't he cute?  Mom won him in the Greyhound Companions of Missouri auction.


We have lights going down both sides of the RV.  It looks somewhat festive in here.


Some of our neighbors really decorated the outside of their RVs.  We will show you those photos later.

Day Out With Mom

We had a very busy Saturday with Mom.  We started out our day with a very long walk going down some streets that we haven't walked before in our park. We are not sure how far we walked because our walking app didn't work today.  :::sigh:::  We didn't run in the park today because Scout limped for like ten seconds after a run on Thursday and Mom hasn't let her run since.

The club house.
 After our walk, we hung up some laundry on the community clothesline.  We have only seen one other person use it.

Community clothesline - the RVs behind it are in storage.
After we watched an hour or so of Food Network, we loaded in the car for a trip to town.  Mom took us to lunch!  We went to Checkers.  It is a fast food place where you drive-thru.  We had a few fries.

Our laundry was dry when we got back, so we brought that into the RV and then we sat outside for three hours and listened to Christmas music while Mom read.


A nice lady that we have walked with several times came by, so we took a walk with her and Mom.  We wanted to run in the dog park, but it was full of little dogs.  Drat! 

We are now pretty tired from all that fresh air, so it is time for a long nap.

Let Me Show You Around Our New Digs

We are adjusting well to our new place in Alabama.  We enjoying laying in the sand and let me tell you, digging in sand is fun!

We finally took some photos today of our place.  This is only a small part of the campground. 

This is our site.  We put out a few Christmas decorations.

The sites are quite large.  The people on the left side of us haven't been home since we have been here.


Our street

Beyond these trees is the dog park.

It is huge!  Scout and I love it.  We run and run and run!



I like to dig in the sand. Today was funny because I would dig and Mom would fill up the hole and while she was doing that, I would dig another hole on the other side of the fence.  We played that game for quite a while.
Scout is trying to catch me.  It's not happening.

Weeeee!

Scout is happy that the temperatures are now in the 60's instead of the 70's.

Scout decided to play the "dig the hole game" with Mom.
 Some of the people who live here lease their lots.  They live here year round.  Other people have decided to build homes here.

Some people build a home for their RV.  They can park it in a covered area and then they have a house.

Some people have built traditional houses here. We do not know what the re-sale value is on these homes because a traditional home can be built next to just a lot with just an RV or to a home that is not traditional.
   
We have Canadians living in our park.
We have half Canadians and half Americans here.
Our entrance is decorated for Christmas.

It is very tempting.

We look like the ambassadors for our park. BOL!
There is still more to see in our park, but we will save that for another day.
