As Terry would put it, we have three more sleeps before relocating to the Topsham Fairgrounds for more friends, food, and fun. However, before we get to go frolicking in our fantasies, we’ll need to do a little (a lot) of washing. Pine trees maybe “purddy”, but they are sho’ ‘nuf messy; ‘specially when you live underneath of them.
The first task will be washing the pine pitch off of the truck and RV. Then the truck will need to get a bath and get cleaned out for transporting the men folk around once Randy and Terry arrive (after six more sleeps). The RV will get cleaned inside and out the week before we head for Belfast.
It’s our last week here at Wild Duck. The weather has finally turned nice bringing more and more ducks back to the Duck Pond and free food. Yesterday there were six to eight male Mallard ducks swimming around the pond. We suspect that the females are sitting on nests somewhere amongst the katt tails with little ducklings soon to appear.
Because of the inclement weather, we haven’t even taken the bikes off the back of the RV. I’m not sure if we’ll carry them with us again next year. Last year I only used mine once when Briana and I went on a 20 mile bike ride along the Rails to Trails trail in Burlington, Vermont. We use them quite frequently at the Plantation, but don’t seem to use them enough to justify carting them along with us each summer.
We had fully intended to do some canoeing while here at Wild Duck, but, again, the weather didn’t cooperate. We left our Sea Eagle inflatable canoe at home knowing that the campground has canoes and kayaks. Also, my brother has a “couple” of canoes that we can use when we get to Belfast (actually, he has a couple dozen canoes since he is an outfitter and river guide). Leaving “stuff” behind is all part of the weight management strategy of living in a house with wheels.
Well, I guess I have rambled on enough for one day. Take Care Until Next Time - - - - -
