Rainbow Plantation Is Home

It’s hard to believe that we’ve been back at Rainbow Plantation for six weeks now, time sure flies when you’re having fun.  Are we having fun yet?  Well, yes, now that I think about it, I guess we are!!  We’re enjoying being “home”.  Home that is, if fulltime RVers have a home.

We enjoyed our time in Maine last summer; just can’t get enough of that rugged Maine coastline.  We enjoyed our time in Michigan; just can’t get enough of those sandy beaches along Lake Michigan.  We enjoyed our short time in Virginia; want to spend more time there next summer visiting some more of the historical sites there.  We enjoyed New Hampshire and Tennessee; just can’t get enough of those grand child fixes.  But, on top of all of that, it’s just nice to be home. 

L. A. (Lower Alabama) brings a nice mixture of sandy beaches, shopping, and history; plus, the added benefit of Rainbow Plantation.  Over the next few weeks, with the arrival of more and more “swallows returning to Capistrano”, things will be escalating at the Plantation.   Activities will begin blooming like flowers in spring.  And the Gary and Larry Show will be getting underway with the photo albums appearing on the table at the clubhouse recording all the fun and follies.

There will be Thanksgiving Dinner, Christmas Dinner, Mardi Gras Celebration, and Easter Dinner along with Souper Supper, Flatulence Fest, and the Death By Chocolate taste tasting festivals.  And, on top of that, there we’ll be Tuesday and Thursday night dinners, Saturday morning breakfasts, Sunday morning Bagels and Coffee, and Ice Cream Social on Sunday evenings.  Think we’ll get enough to eat?

The calendar will fill up with around fifty other activities from beading, to painting, to quilting, to whittling, to – you name it, it will most likely be there.  Chair caning was popular last year and will most likely return this year as well.  Oh yes, there are, also, the outings; the monthly Chapter 26 meetings at the Original Oyster House, a trip to Road Kill Café, and the Corn Beef and Cabbage Dinner in March just to mention a few.   

Yep, home is where we park it and right now that is at Rainbow Plantation in Summerdale, Alabama.  So “Come on Down!”  “You’ll be glad you did!”  And, “You’ll like the way you look, I guarantee it!”

Take Care Until Next Time  - - - - - - -
