Lazy Day, Cold, and Friends.....

Our Location: Magic River Rv Resort, Long Beach, Mississippi

(pics taken with my phone)

Last night's short but heavy downpours served to cool things off here as the temps dipped overnight and this morning leaving us around the 50F/10C mark with a cold wind today. Truly it didn't seem to warm up much throughout the day with the wind seeming to take any of the sun's heat and blow it away.

Morning fire visit started around 6 a.m. this morning with Buzz, Mac and Ken, with Ron following along not much later. Then of course the others staggered along at various times. Swilly came by with a fistful of pictures to share with us all and was ever gracious in his explanations and our kidding him about his head of dark wild hair. Before long Robert showed up with Butch following shortly afterward. So a full compliment around the morning fire even though it wasn't the warmest morning. Lisa, Jeannie, Chuck, Charles, Pete, Linda and a new guy also managed to put in an appearance. 

Ken and Faye pulled out this morning heading to the area in which we recently left, Gulf Shores, Alabama while we were a few miles up the road at Foley, Alabama. That left two empty spots in the campground which were filled by 5 pm this evening. So once again all the regular spots are full but a few more folks will be leaving within the next week. It's that time of the year when folks start heading home and with the mild winter I'm willing to bet more folks go sooner than later.

It was a very lazy day today in which we basically did nothing but keep warm. ~laugh~ Yes I know, us being Canadians we should be used to the cold weather but it's not the same down here as it is back in Ontario. There its cold for long periods of time and not only the occasional day here and there like it is down here in the deep south. Honestly I think the occasional day here and there might be harder to take! Part of it is a mental thing I'm certain as we assume it will be much warmer here and while it is still much warmer than back home, it's not 'warm' like we expect so it seems colder. Did you follow all that? If not, go back and read it again, it'll come to you. ~laugh~ 

A surprise visit this afternoon from our good friends Ron & Sharon was very nice and quite enjoyable. We had a number of laughs and a few more serious moments as well. Ron replaced a light bulb for me in the bathroom that I just couldn't get to fit for some reason. It took two of us to get it though and I won't go into detail except to say Ron and I both ended up in the shower at the same time. A good time was had by all, I think!  ~laugh~  I always enjoy time spent with either or both of them, such nice people. 

A phone call from Linda at Bluegrass with an update on my mail situation kind of filled out the rest of the afternoon between pages in  my book.  I finished John Grisham's book The Brethren. It was a good read. I'm currently working on John Saul's novel Sleep Walking. 

Good stuff...

Dinner was cooked inside as I wasn't going outside to cook in this cold with a cold wind blowing. Honey Pecan Chicken breast with stuffing and garden rice was all very good and we enjoyed it. Cooked much faster inside than on the BBQ dinner was a very fast event this evening. ~laugh~ 

A quick clean up, some more reading and it was off to various parts of the Igloo as another day comes to an end. We already have decided our plans for tomorrow and we will be getting out doing some things for certain. So stay tuned....

Thanks for visiting, hope you enjoyed your stay, feel free to leave a comment. Until next safe, take care...
