Poplar Point CG (site #E100)
It has rained some just about every day that we’ve been here. I sure wish there was a way that Texas could get some of this rain to help with the drought out there. It’s so wet here that big mushrooms are popping up all over the place!
I was surprised to see some Fall colors already showing on this Maple tree. These red berries are abundant in the area. Since the birds aren’t eating them, I would assume that they are poisonous.
We are on a waterfront site but we haven’t taken the kayaks out yet. It’s been too rainy. We’ve caught up on our rest and we’ve read the book “The Help”. We like to read aloud using different accents for the characters. Maybe we’ll get to see the movie soon.
Here’s a typical site here at Poplar Point. Notice how wooded it is. It’s water and 30 amp on this one but some sites don’t have electricity. They are open to the main lake instead of up a cove like we are.
It cleared up enough today to have our friends Gail and Rick of Gypsy Turtles join us for the afternoon. They are staying nearby at the State Fairgrounds in Raleigh and enjoying FHU (50 amp even) for the same price as here ($25). There aren’t any trees there yet and the sites are close together but it’s much more convenient for appointments.
I think that they enjoyed the trees here and agreed that this is the kind of cg that they like too. We enjoyed the visit and know that we will run into them again some time down the road.
Thanks for dropping by, and enjoy each day of your life’s journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.
