Time for Ice Cream

Good Morning. It looks like we are going to have another nice day with a high nearing 80 and partly sunny.  I’ll take that. I’m not sure what we are going to do today, but we will definitely get outside.

Day 89. It was such a nice day yesterday, I walked almost 2 miles. Don’t you just feel so much better when you are out in the fresh air and get some exercise. This beautiful view doesn’t hurt either. As we walked around by the water, we saw the birds sitting in the sand on the beach and others perched on top of posts. We watched other people enjoying the nice weather too. Some were walking the beach or fishing. Others were sitting in their lounge chairs reading or relaxing as they watched the waves hit the shore. And, there were a few people gathered together just enjoying the company of other campers. Everyone was doing the same thing we were, enjoying the beautiful day.

We took a short drive into Port Isabel to Walmart for a few supplies. On the way home Clyde suggested we stop for ice cream. He has been hankering for some since we started on our journey and I keep saying no, it’s not warm enough to enjoy it. Well, he finally wore me down and I said yes. It’s not that I don’t like ice cream, ice cream is a weakness of mine and he knows it.

We decided to stop at this fun looking tourist souvenir store that said ice cream instead of going to dairy queen, which we can get anywhere and isn’t really true ice cream. This store was huge. They had all kinds of souvenirs but mostly shells and items made from shells. The post cards were the cheapest we’ve seen anywhere and they had a large selection to choose from. He took that as a sign to get some more to send out. The ice cream was good and a nice treat. We may have to stop there again before we head north.

De-Winterized

It was finally warm enough to work on de-winterizing Winnie.  This is the first time we did it ourselves.  Last year we paid to have the RV service center do it for us.  It’s a good thing we have manuals and a son who is mechanically inclined.  Thanks Kevin, you are really appreciated.  We made sure the antifreeze was drained and all plugs were in place.   Even though the RV Center said they found a leak at the shut-off valve to the ice-maker we found none.  All we can deduce is that the valve was loose and needed tightening.  We will be vigilant and keep our eyes open though for any leaks in the future.

Next thing on our to-do list is to caulk our windows, etc.  I need to figure out exactly what kind of caulk to buy.  We are still concerned about the chassis battery.  We think we still need a new one, as it is not holding a good charge.  And then there is the jack that didn’t retract all the way.  All 4 jacks were suppose to be worked on and fixed last year. We took Winnie in more than once for the same thing.  And you wonder why I have no faith or trust in the RV service department.  Other than that, we are ready to go camping.  Can’t wait.

Until next time,

Kathryn
