A Bridge to Somewhere.....

Happy Monday evening all.  It's Pod here to let you know all about our Monday.  Our day started bright and early when Jackson woke Rob up for his early morning walk.  The temps were in the low 60's and Rob said they felt so good after the heat and humidity back home.  

Breakfast was a yummy breakfast casserole made with something called "square sausage" and eggs straight from the farm (thanks Mary Sutton.)

The whole group was lazy this morning, and just hung out in The Clam.  Rob showed Cousin Sharon some tricks she could do with her iPhone and Macbook Pro.  

Finally around noon, Sharon, Trisha, Jackson, Murphy, Gracie, and Rob loaded up in Levi and went to town.  Seems that a Wal-Mart stop was in order.  Afterwards, they stopped by the New River State Park to see the campground.  We have all camped there before, but we wanted to see how it was being maintained.  We're glad to report all is well there.  Plus, Sharon bought a sticker, a bandana, and a hat, while Rob bought stickers with emphasis on the "s".  

The a quick stop at the New River General store, to get a snack, and Levi said they crossed "the bridge to somewhere."  Seems that Rob had looked at the map while waiting at Wal-Mart and found a great new road to ride on.  Cranberry Creek Road is a great little paved road, curvy, with beautiful views.  The best part was before long we were riding along the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway.  

After a nice ride along the Parkway, it was back to camp, where we walked doggies, Trisha and Jackson joined me in an afternoon nap, and Cousin Sharon, Murpy, and Gracie did the same with Splash.  

A nice afternoon storm rolled through, and Rob hung out in The Clam enjoying the cool air, rain, and seeing how The Clam did in it's first storm.  Rob said The Clam did great!! 

Supper was a yummy Taco Bake cooked in a Camp Dutch Oven, and now Trisha, Rob,  and Jackson are sitting in The Clam watching TV.  Boy they've got it made don't they.  

Here's a few more pictures from our day to enjoy.....

Well that's about it for today.  It's no telling what the plan is for tomorrow, so I guess you're just going to have to stop back by here and find out.  And as always.....

Until next time, stay safe out there......-Pod
