Yesterday afternoon I got a call from a fellow Safari-ite (Safari Motorcoach Owner) named John. He has reservations for Thursday, but he was ahead of schedule and able to come to the park on Wednesday! I called down to the office to find out if his site was reserved for Wed, and no, it was vacant. So I buzzed down there quick and paid for it while John made his way to High Cliff State Park.
He unhooked his toad and dolly from behind his motorhome, and got settled into his campsite. He has a Safari motorhome the same length of ours but the colors of Mel and Paula's rig. Speaking of Mel and Paula, they will be here later today to enjoy time with us other Safari-ites! They are only staying for the day, and not bringing their rig. Mel is still recovering from his surgery, and even a day trip will be wonderful to see them again.
We slapped a slab of fresh/frozen Salmon on the grill.... yummmm
It was a very big piece, as that is a full size cookie sheet underneath it. LOL
Later on, Steveio got some firewood and started us up a campfire. (please ignore the Girl Scout Water in his hands, he don't want his secret let out?)
Note the Thermocell units on the end table. Yes, the skeeters are out in full force, as we had rain here the other day and a whole new crop has hatched. But the Thermocells work wonderfully to keep them away and we can sit and visit and relax without bug sprays or slapping every three minutes from those incessant buggers.
(I have had questions in the comments section about Thermocells, so this portion now is added to the blog:)
Here is a link to the Thermocell post I did up when we first got them....
We swapped stories and tales of places to go and places we have been...
and enjoyed our company well into the night.
(and I think we will have another campfire tonight!)
