A Little Shopping, Empty Sites and RV Park Research
Apr 6, 2012
39 deg. clear, no wind.
Forecast = Clear. High of 64F. Winds from the South at 5 to 10 mph shifting to the NW in the afternoon.
Not much happening around here the last few days. Yesterday, Jim and Linda did hop into CLT and head to a Walgreen's Drug Store to pick up a few items and then head back to that Food Max Grocery store that they went to when we first got here, to buy a few things.
Other than that, not much else going on.
As you probably remember, I'm parked in the new section of RV sites here at the Bakersfield Palms RV Park . This section is for RVs that are staying for shorter periods of time. In fact, it is kind of interesting how it empties out every morning, and then almost completely fills up in the afternoon and evening.
Take Thursday for instance. By about 11:00 there were only 3 of us RVs here in this section, but by 8:00 pm, it was almost completely full. That has been the norm ever since we came here a week ago, but yesterday something changed.
Hardly any RVs came into the park!! I don't know if it's because of the upcoming Easter weekend, or if it's just a normal thing, but it sure seems strange to have so many sites empty this morning. All along, I was thinking that the Easter weekend would be busy, (like it is up and down the I-95 corridor on the East coast), and that's part of the reason we are staying here until Monday, but I may have been wrong.
It's going to be interesting to see how many RVs come into the park during the next few days.
Jim's been doing a lot of research of RV Parks along our planned route from here to Portland, OR., and he's found some that sound really interesting. There are a few that are supposed to have sites right along rivers and a few others that are supposed to have ocean views.
Now, if the weather only co-operates.
Did you know that The custom of giving eggs at Easter time has been traced back to Egyptians, Persians, Gauls, Greeks and Romans, to whom the egg was a symbol of life?
