We hit heavy traffic in Virginia. If there was a car on the side of the road it caused a standstill. We hit big jams several times during our last 100 miles.
I love our campground! Mama says it is rated #2 in Best Parks of America. There is so much activity here. Mama says I am over-stimulated. Today, she decided I needed to wear my harness because I was pulling way too much. I am acting much better now.
The campground is really a resort. Mama says it is perfect for families. They have a bus depot here so the buses come here to pick people up for tours or to take them to metro stations. There is a nice store that has camping things as well as souvenirs. There is also miniature golf, a spray park, basketball court, several playgrounds, nature trail, cafe, outdoor movie theater, hot tub, sauna, game room, exercise room, free Cable TV, free Wi-Fi, TV lounge area and they have a DOG PARK! Actually, there are two! This place is huge! We still haven't seen it all.
Each day they offer an informational sightseeing session to help the campers learn how to get around DC. Mama is going to attend tomorrow's session. They really make things easy here.
|Oh, Boy! Look at this place!|
|Turtles are all over.|

|Tractor rides are offered free every night.|
|At the dog park.|
|Turtles are even in the dog park. Dad says it is a hazard.|
|Fire hydrant is also a hazard to running dogs. We haven't run yet though.|
|I love being off leash again!|

The Greyhound Who Wouldn't Mind Living At This Campground

|Missed the sign in South Carolina.|
We left at 7 a.m. and arrived at our campground at 8 p.m. The folks forgot about the time change, so that is why it was 8 p.m.and not 7 p.m. as planned. We didn't eat dinner until 8:45 p.m. Mama wasn't thrilled about that. If we were traveling on our own schedule, we wouldn't be on the road for 12 hours. We just need to get there. Mama microwaved a Jack Daniels' BBQ Shredded Beef for dinner and said it was delicious. We didn't have any.
The RV park we stayed at last night was for SENIORS over 45. LOL Mama didn't know she was a senior. Dad was all excited about staying there. It was a let down though. The campground itself was nice and open, but the sites were not very nice. We barely saw it though, so no big deal. The map shows they have trails and a lake. It looks like the long term people have a nicer area than what we did.

|Big open field to play in.|

|This is the camper that had 9 dogs inside. They have 3 more dogs at home.|
We are currently in North Carolina making our way to Virginia. We should be stopping around 5 p.m., if all goes well.

|Our last walk by the fire house in Houston.|
|We are out of Texas!|
|Traveling is tiring!|
|We are escorted to our campsite.|
|The lake at the camground.|
|Come on Mama! We need to walk!|
|The campground is nicely decorated.|
|Me and Dad.|
|Our site. See the picnic table. It turns into a bench.|
I woke Mama up at 3:30 a.m. because I wanted to go exploring. She told me to go back to bed. She tried sneak into the shower at 5:15 a.m., but I wouldn't let her. I wanted to go for a walk. I won!
We left this morning at 7 a.m. We will spend the night in South Carolina.
The Greyhound Who Is Reporting To You From The Road

Our stay in Houston has been a nice one. The campground was spacious. There was a lot of places for us to walk. We had two lakes that we could walk around. There was one that we could only look at for some reason. We took a few dips in the lake last week. It was my first time, but Scout is a pro at laying in water.
|Views from the lake last night.|
Everyone told us we would be so hot in Houston, but it was hotter at home almost the entire time. We picked a good year to leave home it appears.
Last night we had Pizza Hut. It was good this time. Mama ordered half Meat Lovers and half Supreme minus the green peppers. She received a free order of Stuffed Pizza Rollers. They have cheese and pepperoni in them.
|Meat Lovers / Supreme|

We will try and update you from the road to let you know we are okay. Traveling makes us very tired, so our updates may be very brief.

The Greyhounds Who Are On The Road Again!

We actually had Pizza Hut on Sunday night. Mama was disappointed in it. She ordered that new pizza that is made with their garlic bread. She didn't like it. She couldn't taste the garlic on the bread and it had too much sauce.

A couple that has been here since February left today. It was a little sad to seem them go. Mama told her that I blogged and she thought it was funny. Funny? Yes, she asked what I could possibly write about. Mama told her I write about all the happenings in the campground. Her eyes got really big. I think that made her nervous. LOL
