Where I stayed
Bull Run again...

Thursday, April 21, 2011

Today was a day off from tourism.  We did the Costco trip and gassed up the Sooby at a much lower price... about twenty five cents cheaper than the local stations.  We also again found a Safeway store... man have we missed them.  We haven't seen one since New Mexico.  We shared a sandwich from their deli and I had a great visit with the gal who made it.  She's originally from the Bronx.  Of course, I picked up her accent and from there the conversation flowed... Imagine that!

We found a suitable laundromat and washed the rugs from Shorty.  It's nice to have a phone to help locate such places and also get ratings.  This was a nice place as you'll see from the video.  I try to keep you apprised of all we do.  Not many birds around here that I've been able to capture, but I did get a large, one and half to two inch long spider in our camp restroom.  

We came back to camp and did a walk on the Bull Run trail.  We had only been out for about twenty minutes when we came upon a woman who had fallen and needed help.  Lynnie called the Park office and asked for help for the woman.  While she waited with her, I walked back to make sure that they were on their way.  I never encountered them, but found out at the office that they had taken a different route on a four-wheeler.  The picked her up and took her to help before I got back to Lynnie.

The trail, though well used, is in a beautiful setting, with droves of Bluebells.  I got a few shots, but it's hard to really show how numerous they are.

Now, we're back in camp and Lynnie is making salads for our Pre-easter celebration with our nephew Anthony.  He lives in Maryland, not far from here.  We'll head in that direction tomorrow, to Petapsco Valley State Park.  We're both excited to see him again.  It has been too long.  That's the great thing about taking a trip around the country like this.  Great to see family and also to have our own house along with us.

That covers the varied day we had.  It's cooler here today by about twenty degrees, but sunny and comfortable.  I hope you are all in good weather wherever you may be.  Thanks again for checking in!
