Ken had work to do outside to dry off everything, including the bikes and their seats. He also rinsed the sea glass and then washed the basement doors of Wilbur. Everything gets so sandy and dirty while in this CG. I was inside getting ready, packing lunch and drinks for the beach, and making omelettes for breakfast. We were able to eat outside and it was already in the 70's.
Ken continued washing Wilbur while I did the dishes and then worked on this blog. By 10:30 we were on our way to the parking lot in downtown Avalon. The 4 of us unloaded our bikes and were on our way to ride to the shopping area of Stone Harbor. What a gorgeous ride checking out all the gorgeous million dollar plus homes that are being built or are new this season. They are positively amazing and the landscaping fantastic! It also helps that it is such a level ride, but don't be fooled, the breeze off the ocean can make it a bit challenging and especially on the way back! How come that is always the case or that when you turn around the wind shifts and you are riding into it again????? We returned to our vehicles after riding about 12 or so miles. I was so grateful that my back, hip, and thigh were fairly comfortable throughout the trip.
|I don't think Ken should be taking "selfies" while he is riding!|
The 4 of us headed to the beach to enjoy the beautiful sunny day. There were many more folks on the beach today but we certainly had no trouble finding a private spot. We ate the snacks/lunch we brought and sunbathed while reading (some chose to do some "heavy breathing") and after about 2 hours Ken and I decided to go back to the CG to finish prepping for tomorrow's early departure. I can't believe we have been here 4 days, for they positively flew by!!!
Upon our return, Ken continued to do some work outside and I did the same inside. It is amazing how much work needs to be done to prepare for leaving. Because the sites here are sandy and we had some rain, everything needed some extra washing before putting them away. Ken also had to get on the roof to sweep the leaves and debris off the awnings before leaving.
We showered and I did my devotions while Ken rested. We headed over to Fred and Doloris site to cook our hamburgs on their campfire and then the 4 of us ate together. After clean-up, we returned to their RV to play 3 rounds of Hand and Foot which the men won and a game of Haus that was a win for the women. We certainly laughed a lot and had so much fun! Spending these few days with Fred and Doloris has been wonderful!
We said our good-byes around 10:00, threatening to knock at their BR window before we leave early tomorrow morning!
Back to Wilbur for a little reading before turning out the lights! What a wonderful time in Avalon.
