We left the Walmart around 10:30am in a heavy rainfall. It rained just about all the way to Barren River Campground at times it was hard to see the road. But,we made it ok. We didn't know if the campground would still be like it was three years ago when we were here last. Well it was,they still let you stay without paying a fee. They stop collecting the 19th but still let you use the campground. They turn the electric and water off,but they leave the dump station and one water spigot on. That works out good for us since we hhave a generator for our electrical needs when we have to have electric. There were 6 or 7 campers when we arrived but they left sunday evening. Nancy and I managed to get some much overdue walking in. Maybe by the time we leave here we will be in little better shape.
Barren River Campground
We had a good nights sleep last night and they hadn't turned off the electric yet so we got to watch a little television. We took our time getting up since we had no plans to go anywhere. After our breakfast and showers we did our morning walk. By the time we did our walking they had come around and turned off all of the electric. So now it is time for some camping. Of course we have the generator so it no really "roughing it." The day past by very quick and evening came so we did more walking. Six and a half miles today of walking and boy can we tell that we are out of shape. The walking should be very good for us because a lot of it is uphill and not on level ground that we are used to in Florida.
We got up and out earlier this morning,like before breakfast. The sun looked as though it would come out early so we wanted to get some walking in before it got to hot. It was 70° and cloudy so not to bad. Not to bad weather wise but it sure was hard on these old bodies by the time we were through. I think maybe we were a little sore from yesterday. We were lazy for most of the day,may as well be nothing else to do. I did grill a sirloin steak and Nancy made steak fries and a salad,so we had a very good dinner. We then sat out by the river relaxing and saw a Blue Heron catch a fish. After letting our dinner settle down we walked a few more miles. We ended the day by watching "Dancing with the Stars." It was another good day.
This moring started out with Nancy having us scrambled eggs with diced ham,toast w/ jelly and coffee. What a way to start the morning,then came our walking. We are going into Scottsville to the laundromat to do the washing today. Then going to the library to check my email and othe things.
