Frustrating Start to the Day

Tuesday March 21st 2023

It got cold enough overnight that I had to put another blanket on the bed in the middle of the night. When I got up to make another attempt at reserving a state park booking for next winter the inside temperature was fifty five degrees. The temperature climbed quickly during the day. By noon the temperature had crossed the seventy mark. It peaked in the mid to upper seventies.

My morning battle with the Florida State Park booking software was another failure. At least in the last couple of days the software seems to be behaving. The error messages and downright crashes I experienced earlier in the year haven’t happened recently. My problem these last couple of days has been the low inventory combined with the slow bandwidth of my internet connection. Tomorrow morning there are nine possible sites across six state parks that I could try to book. I will only get a chance at booking one of them. The challenge will be to pick the best site that I have the best chance of booking.

This pair of ducks has been swimming around at the park beach every day since I got here. I suspect they are preparing a place nearby for the arrival of ducklings later in the spring.

The cold temperature and early morning once again caused a disturbance in my day. I crawled back into bed for a couple of hours after my booking attempt. The result was another slow start to the day. I ended up getting a bunch of chores done and an early start at travel preparations for Thursday’s move. My next stop is a new location on the Rambling Road Trip. I suspect that supplies and services may be a good distance away. I plan to stock up tomorrow.
