Devencrest Travel Park - Ducks on Pond

Devencrest Travel Park - White Flowering Trees


Today was "one of those days." In the wee hours I was awakened by the chirping of my carbon monoxide detector. I had to crawl out of my warm bed to change the battery. I had set my thermostat on 55 degrees, so it was a bit chilly. After this, it took me a long time to get back to sleep. It didn't help that a train came through every thirty minutes or so.

When I got up again at 8:00, I discovered that I had forgotten to turn the water heater on. I reset the alarm and went back to bed to wait until the water was hot. By the time I was finally ready to travel, it was about 11:30 -- much later than I normally leave.

Thankfully, my trip to Albany, Georgia was uneventful -- that is, until I actually reached Albany. I stopped to feed Daisy and then had trouble leaving the service station because the turn was so sharp. A nice young lad watched the right fender for me to help keep me from hitting the air pump.

My home for the next couple of nights will be at Devencrest Travel Park, which is about six miles south of Albany. The owner is very nice and helpful. He gave me a local newspaper, a business magazine and a street map. He marked the map to show where the attractions are. This is another Passport America park, so the price is right -- $20 for two nights.

There is a little pond with an island across from my site where about a dozen ducks, including four tiny ducklings, live. The ducklings didn't swim out into the open water. They just stayed among the grasses at the water's edge, so they were a bit hard to spot.

Tonight, for some mysterious reason, my big printer/scanner/copier suddenly started working again. What a wonderful surprise! I was expecting to have to spend a bundle getting it repaired when I get back to Austin. Maybe it just needed to be shaken around a little. :>)
