Sunday March 4th 2018
The temperature got down to the low fifties overnight according to the TV weather people. I think it may have been lower here. I woke up around 5AM and added a blanket to the covers. The day was another almost perfect day. The temperature peaked in the mid 70s a little lower than Saturday and the wind blew harder as well. Once again the there wasn’t a cloud in the sky all day.
I sat outside with my coffee this morning listening to and watching the birds. After a while I got my tablet and a second cup of coffee. Before I knew it the morning had passed. I put the tablet away for awhile and walked over to the viewing area for the lock. Over the course of the next hour I watched the boats going through the lock. They ranged from little ski boats to sixty foot ocean capable trawlers. My guess is they range in cost from a few thousand dollars to north of a million.
The afternoon found me back in my chair watching the birds and reading. I think I’m back in RV living mode after six weeks of being mostly in travel mode. I experienced some bad weather coming across the country, but overall was lucky. During the last couple of weeks the areas I traveled through have had more than their share of bad weather.
For dinner I grilled a piece of steak and microwave “baked” a potato. It was very good. It also pretty much emptied the refrigerator of my backlog of food. If I don’t get to the store tomorrow, I’ll have to raid the freezer. I guess my days of hanging out at the campground are over for a couple of days.
