We have completed our first week as camp host at FDR State Park and so far things have been running rather smoothly. This past weekend was a good one with a good group of campers. That means there were no problems and everyone enjoyed themselves…..including us.
Monday morning we did our rounds checking campsites. We blew off a few patios but for the most part things were in good shape so that allowed me to work on some weed eating. As Gerri said in an earlier post, weed eating is not typically a job of the host but it can be done on a volunteer basis. I enjoy weed eating to make the setting look better so for us it is not a problem. This campground was in need of a little weeding. With all the budget cuts there just aren’t enough workers to get it all done as fast as the weeds grow. So this morning I began working on this project down by the lakeside while Gerri went around and pulled the tags and checked the sites to see what each one needed. It will take a few weeks to get things looking better but hey, we have the time.
We worked until it was time for a late lunch. We made our way back to the motorhome and had a little lunch and then sat outside enjoying this really beautiful day. The weather has been just perfect. Not too hot and little or no humidity. It really felt like a crisp early fall day. As we sat there we decided it was a great day to have a coke break at the Discovery Café at Callaway Gardens/Resort. So we made our way in that direction and enjoyed a little “down time” at Callaway. What could be better??? We had the place to ourselves. We met a young lady that had worked for me when I was the Recreational Food and Beverage Manager there. She was so cute and excited about seeing Gerri and me.
While strolling through the Discovery Center we decided to take in the latest exhibit. It was the Southern Rivers Guild of Artists and Craftsmen exhibit. We walked through and saw lots of pretty pictures and pottery and then headed back to the rv. We sat out for awhile under the awning and enjoyed our time… the weather is just grand. Just before supper, we decided to walk around the lake and then take the loop where we are camped. What a great walk, the lake was peaceful and pretty and the loop walked us past other campers who had campfires and cooking out. What a great smell of fires and food. It was a fantastic day. Life is good.
By the way, Happy 100th Anniversary to the RV industry. We are glad you are here.
