So a little of where I am now..
I'm still at Wolfs Campgrounds parked at my Mom's house. I've stayed here rather than drifted to other family members homes because I can get 30amp power, thus run my a/c for the 4 leggers in the RV. And of course, Ellie isn't complaining about me keeping her nice & cool too! In fact, it's too cold in there for me ;-) I love moderate temps, but in this heat, a/c is very necessary!
Gads, I can see my connection bleeping off & on while writing this post & I'm using my air card. Grrrrr. Wifi today is moot.
We had a family reunion last weekend on Saturday. It was a fun day full of food & family. Yesterday, we drove to Erie (we meaning my sister <G>) & spent the day there....getting lost. Nice. Oh well, the country side was beautiful! I was hoping to see my great aunt Betty, but we didn't make it to her. So we drove where my Mother grew up instead. Only ONE house is left standing! Sad. All the family homes, friends & relatives of her's are all gone now. Homes that is & well, yes, some of the people too. We could not find the church she attended when she was a kid, so not sure if that's still standing or not. Industry has taken over most of the area that she resided in as a child.
So then we left there & got losted. ;-)
So back to the campground. It's been to hot to do much walking, plus my back is twisted right now! Ouch. Hope this passes soon because it's not fun!
Back to the campground:
(internet off, internet on, internet off, internet on..this is driving me crazy)
OK, back to the campground:
Here is the Wolfs Den. It has been used as a restrauant in the past. In fact, my Mom managed it. But they closed it this year. It's pretty expensive to run. They rent out the den for occassional things, such as wedding receptions, birthday parties, etc. What's REALLY COOL about this place is that my ancestors built the barn years back when!
How cool is that??!!
I'm betting the temps weren't in the 90's back then either...
And here is the pond that the patio area of the den faces. It's around 9 - 14 acres. There are canadian geese & mallards in it. It's stocked & the campers fish from it. As do the birds. ::quack quack - honk::
And there's a Parson Russell Terrier that swims in the pond too, when his owner releases him to there. I don't think I've taken any pics of that though.
The landscaping here is beautiful. Full of flower beds & the landscape is always perfectly mowed.
Now for the birdies: (Oh & I finally saw a pair of goldfinches the other day -- no camera in hand though-- so just envision them in your heads instead)
The canadian geese. I've been told that the white goose is a male. He lost his mate awhile back (she died), so he took over two of her females & guards over them. When the others try to eat before they do, he runs them off! What a cool story huh?
Sorry about the not so great photo though.
3 of the Mallards hoping for a piece of bread!
Instead of "the end", I shall just say "Bottoms UP!"
