Sunday, October 27, 2019 - Hungry Mother State Park Marion, VA - Day 4 - 0 Miles, 725 Miles for the Trip

A Barn Next Door

Lots or rain overnight, but by 10:00AM the sun was out. Partly cloudy & warm for the rest of the day. Many, many RVs, both fiberglass & stick built headed out this morning. There are 3 fiberglass trailers that stayed today. I have a new neighbor in a very large 5th wheel. I called & chatted with my son & Don & Anne, my usual Sunday phone calls. I also drove into Marion and the Ingles Market for a few supplies.

Back at the trailer I headed to the showers. There are two bathroom buildings. The old one is attached to the office, and at best, can be described as "rustic". The new building has 4 individual shower rooms, one handicapped. Good showerheads, a separate drying area that only gets a little wet from the shower, plenty of hot water, but no heat. Only one hook, but there is a bench. I guess I'd give it a B.

I did quire a bit of reading the rest of the afternoon sitting out in the sun.

Dinner was a microwaved frozen turkey dinner I made up with the leftovers from my Thanksgiving in July get together. I like cooking a big turkey dinner, and invite a bunch of friends & students (back when I was working) during Thanksgiving, but since I've been away keeping out of the snow for the last 5 Thanksgivings, I now do it in July. A bit hot baking a 20 pound turkey in July, and it really hard to find frozen creamed onions, but it worked.

Until Tomorrow -
