Concord Point Lighthouse

Tuesday morning we didn't get to walk to the park because Mom needed to get back to the house.  We walked to the stop sign and back.  It is probably a mile. She had to put dinner in the crock pot and then leave to go sightseeing. She fixed red beans and rice with smoked sausage.  It actually was better than she expected it to be.  It sure smelled good all day while it was cooking.

Dad needed a haircut, so while he was doing that, Mom went shopping at Dollar Tree.  Can you believe she spent $27 there?  She loves shopping there because she can afford everything.  BOL! She bought shampoo, detergent, fabric softener, cold medicines, batteries, cookies, candles, etc.   She usually buys our poop bags because they sell the big dog size.  We didn't need any this time because she really stocked up when we were home last month.

The folks then drove a few miles to Havre de Grace.  That is where the Concord Point Lighthouse is located.  It was built in 1827. It is one of the oldest lighthouses in continuous operation on the East Coast. The folks really enjoyed walking along the promenade.  It was such a beautiful day that they decided to eat outside at a restaurant there.  Mama said it was a really nice day.

This is the light house keepers house.  Tours ended on Sunday, unfortunately.
This used to be a hotel.  It is now a condo.  Mom said she would love to live there just for the view of the water.

This is where the folks ate lunch.  The food was good.  They really enjoyed eating outside on such a pretty day.
After the folks got home, we all sat outside for a few hours.  Dad went fishing and caught about 15 fish.  It was a nice day.

The weather person is threatening us with the "s" word for this weekend.  It can't get too bad because it is going to heat up again after Sunday. You know how the weather people like to hype things up.  It is going to be a cold and rainy day tomorrow.  Blah!

We have a Halloween mystery here.  Our neighbor who has been here for 1.5 years left.  He didn't tell us he was leaving.  He made it sound like he was going to be here for a long time.  He worked here part-time.  He even gave Dad a fishing lure to use on Tuesday and didn't mention he was leaving.  Dad didn't see him after fishing, so planned on returning it to him later.  I guess it is his now. Tuesday afternoon, while our neighbor was gone, a man came by and he flashed a badge and asked Dad what he knew about our neighbor.  Dad thought he pointed to another neighbor, but maybe he met that guy.  It is odd that he took off suddenly. A truck hooked up his travel trailer and took it away, but the neighbor followed in his truck.  We are not sure why the neighbor didn't tow the trailer himself.  We have seen him move boats with his truck. :::shrugs shoulders:::  Mom didn't really like him. She said she felt a strange vibe around him, but doesn't know why.

We hope everyone has a nice Halloween.
