Bye Bye Escapade

After a bunch of hugs and “See Ya Down the Roads” it was time to pull up stakes and point our noses northward.  But, first we had to make a drive by the infamous dump station to vacate our tanks of unwanted black and grey water.  There was no waiting line so within twenty minutes the dumping chore was complete without any unexpected consequences.

Out the gate, turn right, take a left onto CR-29, then a right onto CR-4, finally a left onto Route 13 (which turns into Route 131 when you cross the Michigan border), and then just drive north for about three hours and you're almost home. 

We left about 10 or 15 minutes after Ray and Pat but caught up with them at our first “pit stop” in Michigan.  They were getting ready to take off as we came tooling in.  We caught up with them again just as they were exiting at Cedar Springs for a Meijer’s fix to pick up a few items.  We continued on and beat them home by almost an hour; it turned out that their “feed me” alarm went off so they stopped to appease it. 

After getting the routine “set up camp” items completed, we turned our attention to relaxing.  A little katt napp snuck in and then it was time to focus on making the “What are we going to eat for dinner?” decision.  Now, what’s quick, yummy, and totally healthy?  Why pizza, of course.  Pat had a coupon for two pizzas and six garlic bread sticks for twenty bucks at Mancino’s Pizza – Done Deal; just add some chips and soda and you’ve got health food at its best.  All we needed was a large bowl of ice cream to top it off, unfortunately we didn’t have any on hand.

Following dinner, it was home for the evening where we slipped into our jammies and climbed up into our recliners for an evening of rest and relaxation.  It sure seems quiet here after all the activities of the past couple of weeks.  We had a great time, but now it’s time to sit back and rejuvenate our batteries for a couple of weeks.  Here’s some pictures of our new home location.

Not sure what’s on the agenda for today, but it’s raining outside right now.  Could be a “stay inside day” with college football later this afternoon.  However, rain or shine, we have a very pretty spot to enjoy what ever comes our way.  We’ll gladly let you know tomorrow what we did today so until then, just keep hanging in there!
