the lake at the park

irises, Mom would love these

The roads on the island were covered with water on Tuesday. Our appointment for Bonnie's nails to be trimmed did not occur. The only restaurant open was waffle house. Praise God the grocery store was very close by, while the road in front was flooded, the side entrance was open. Trying to grocery shop for what to eat in a motel room was interesting. The motel filled up due to the rain with people fleeing their homes with dogs.

Wednesday we were able to get down to check on the rig. Insurance went thru, CW had one roll left of appropriate roofing cover, the two young men assigned to work on the roof had come to work on Tuesday. We found a local hangout to eat seafood across from the water.

I just cannot complain about missing a week-end at the beach with all that has occurred not only to us, but to this community.

Our home is ready to go Thursday and we arrive at Mary Oaks RV Park in Florence, Al. Bonnie gets her nails trimmed, we find a fabulous meat market, and ended our day with smoked pork chops we brought from Bradley's store.
