The great weather continued today. It is getting a little more humid each day, and the temperature is hovering in the second half of the eighties. The day began without a cloud in the sky. As the day progressed the clouds moved in until the sun was blocked from providing any bright color at sunset.
After breakfast and my first walk around the campground of the day I headed into town for a supply run. I was in search of a new filter cartridge for my water filter. Walmart had what I needed so I didn’t have to find a Lowes or Home Depot. The Walmart stop also allowed me to replenish my grocery supplies. This makes the third week in a row that I’ve stopped for groceries. I guess limiting my visits to the grocery store is a behavior in my past.
The store was very busy today, but everyone I saw was wearing a mask. The checkout line was incredibly slow. There were four groups in each line I checked when I arrived at the checkout. I picked the one that seem to have less merchandise to be process than the other lines. It was the wrong choice. Six groups were checked out at the line on my right and eight at the line on my left before I even got an opportunity to unload my cart. The checkout clerk in my line was slower than a snail. She went on her break just as I got to the head of the line. I hope she returned with a little more energy. The new clerk seemed a bit faster.
In yesterday’s blog I commented on the arrival of weekend campers at the state park. I was wrong. Three out of four of my neighbors that I was sure were here for the weekend departed this morning. They were all here for only one night. All I can say is they got there monies worth for the one night stay.
