Cobus Creek Park

Today started out rainy.  Mom and I were able to get in our 5:30 a.m. walk in before the rain started.  We didn't see any skunks this morning, but last night we saw two groundhogs.

Dad broke a glass this morning while making his coffee.  It landed in my water dish which meant that he had to wash it and my food dish.  He said that cup of coffee was a lot of work for him.

The girls at the front desk gave me treats this morning.  I still don't like the lobby area.  I will walk through it, but there are too many noises to be comfortable.  Some guests petted me.  I really wasn't interested in them.

We asked the girls at the front desk about the parental controls on the TV.  Dad couldn't watch HBO because of it.  They came up and put a code in, but said they couldn't give it to us.  It only lasted for that one show.  Dad said the code should be easy enough to figure out because she was only pressing one button.  Yep, it was easy.  We did it on the first try.  We can now watch HBO.

Today, we went to a county park.  It is called Cobus Creek Park.  It has a really nice trail.  There is also a sensory garden that is probably really pretty in the summer.

Waterfall at the sensory garden.
Boardwalk to creek.
This creek has trout in it.  We did not see any trout though.  People are allowed to fish there.


We walked almost two miles.  The trail was easy.  We met a family from England.  She saw my booted foot and said "Oh, does he have corns?"  We were quite surprised that she guessed it.  Yep, she has greyhounds.  She said her last one had corns.

Just a pretty tree on our way back to the hotel.
I am not sure what is on the agenda for the rest of the day.  Mom left for a while to do a little shopping and now she is back and Dad is gone.  Kmart is going out of business here and he is there for a second time checking out the bargains.  Last night, we had Applebee's.  We did a takeout order and they left out Dad's order of garlic fries.  Grrrr!  Mom said their garlic fries are really good.  I don't know because I am not allowed to have garlic.  Since we are here due to an insurance claim, our hotel and food are paid for up to $1,500 per our insurance plan. We are not going crazy with our food costs just in case they decide not to cover it.  It shouldn't be an issue, but we are only eating out once a day.  Mom fixes us a big breakfast that stinks up our room and then we either eat out for lunch or dinner.  Mom is really missing her air fryer.  She only has a cook top and microwave here.  She bought air freshener and candles to get the smell out. She turns the exhaust fans, but it still smells.  I don't think most people cook in their rooms. They only give you a few dishes.  Mom is running the dishwasher every day.  She wanted to buy paper plates, but Dad said to just use the dishwasher.

Two of the really nice things at the hotel are: 1) great Wi-Fi and 2) free laundry.

There are a number of bad things about hotel living.  There is only one TV.  None of the furniture is comfortable.  I don't have a couch and I don't do human beds.  I haven't roached since I left the RV.  I think we will all be happy to be back in our RV.  It won't be fun though since we have to be out of it all day while they work on it.  We will have it in the evenings. We have to live like that for a week.
