|Up early, coffee gone, out in the early morning coolness to get those last few chores done. That was the agenda for my morning.
Very nearly everything is done and it won’t take long tomorrow morning before we are ready for the road again.
It was about 10:30 when I finished up and returned inside to get a shower and get ready for the big event of the day at the Cave Hollow Village Complex.
With fresh showers and clean clothing, we walked up to the cave complex to take a look at the activities.
There was already a huge crowd in attendance. Activities were going on everywhere. Live music, a petting zoo, pony rides, fire trucks with Smoky the bear greeting the kids.
A soup tasting, wine tasting, and a beer garden, plus all sorts of food like kettle corn, home made ice cream, and a hog roast. There was a grape stomping, bean bag toss tournament, pumpkin carving contest, and a Raptor display which delighted the crowd.
All the parking areas were filled and cars were parked all over the place, all the way to the highway.
Our grandkids enjoyed themselves all day. Marilyn stayed busy taking pictures, and I took the family on a private tour of Cameron Cave to see the bats. We soon lost count but I know we saw more than 150 as we walked through the cave. We also saw two snakes near the tunnel entrance and that made Jennifer nervous until we were back outside again. I tried to reassure her that the snakes were only near the entrance and would not be in the cave because of the colder temperature.
We returned to the RV and sat together visiting for awhile, then drove to the “Golden Corral” for dinner.
It was sad to say “So Long” to our kids and grandkids. Jennifer tried to choke back tears but we parted with hugs, kisses, and “I Love You’s”.
Now I need to download some pictures from the activity today.
Tomorrow we’ll be on the road again. Life is Good!
