An Official Goof Off Day…

We decided to make today an official Goof-Off day.

We went out for breakfast about 9:30 am at the Astronomical Pancake & Waffle House.  And when they say ‘Astronomical’ they mean it.

Jan got an order of pancakes that consisted of two pancakes more than a foot in diameter, with blueberries the size of small marbles.  They hung way over the side of the plate.

On the way back to the coach we stopped and got gas.  And that was it for the day.

The rest of the time we worked on stuff around here.  Jan hemmed some new pants for me and then did some other sewing chores.  I worked on several small things around the coach that needed fixing.

For supper we heated up the El Pollo Loco takeout we bought home with us while we were in Virginia Beach.  Delicious as always!


Williamsburg and Jamestown…

Today we moved about 100 miles northwest to Williamsburg, VA  for a few days.

We want to visit Colonial WilliamsburgJamestown Settlement, and Yorktown Battlefield.

We’re at an RV park called Anvil Campground.  It’s only about 5 miles from Colonial Williamsburg,  but it’s not near as nice as our last park on the lake in NC.

It’s OK,  but I guess we got spoiled at the last few parks.  Our coach backs up to the highway with no fence separating us,  so we have to keep a close eye on Mister when he’s out,  and although we have no neighbors right now, the sites are close together.

And there is a railroad track about 200 yards through the trees out in front of us.  We can’t really see the trains, or hear them, but strangely enough, we can feel them.  The whole coach vibrates as the ground rumbles.

After getting set up and goofing off for a while, we headed out to a local Hooters for our hot wing fix.  This was the first time we’ve been back to Hooters since we left Gulf Shores in March so we were starting to go into wing withdrawal.

In the latest news from the RV repair front, both my recent problems, the leaky water heater and the leveler jacks that wouldn’t go down, have mysteriously fixed themselves.

The water heater T&P valve stopped leaking the day before we left NC, and after not working when we got to the park in NC, the levelers worked fine here with no problems. Who knows.

More Tomorrow…
