Ken was up early so he could take his chair down to the river to do his devotions and reading while enjoying the sunrise. He says this is probably the best campsite he has ever had!
I was up by 6:30, did some reading, and then we enjoyed a light breakfast before meeting John and Cindy at the pickleball courts at 7:30. We hoped to beat the heat - NOT! By 8 AM it was already 85 degrees and extremely humid.
We played 6 games and had a great time, but we were definitely glistening. Walked back to Harvey so Ken could have another cup of coffee - wow! This is such a new thing and he is even drinking it black - what a guy!!!
John and Cindy gave us their gallon of vinegar and huge box of baking soda so we could put it down all of our drains. It is supposed to "break up" anything that could be partially clogging them. We weren't having any problems, but we thought it would be a good thing to do. After putting in the baking soda followed by the vinegar there is a lot of bubbling action. Unfortunately in our shower the drain must have been partially clogged because some of the liquid remained in the shower. So, we had to borrow a plunger from the CG to get it open. So much for preventative maintenance. All the drains are now working and hopefully any unnecessary odors are gone! Time will tell!
Ken and I made salads for lunch and extra ones for dinner and then for some reason, did a lot of dishes. I talked with my mother and then at 1:45 we headed to the pool to play some water volleyball.
There was a large group of players at the pool and the 4 of us joined in the games around 2:00. I actually did an okay job today, not great, but better! Play stops at 3, so the 4 of us stayed in the pool chatting. The boys got out and Cindy and I continued talking and enjoying the refreshing water. We were back to Wilbur by 4:30 and showers felt spectacular!
I did have a short conversation with Mom, but she was getting company just when I called. We did some reading and I worked on the blog before dinner.
After dinner and clean-up, I worked on the computer and we did some reading. Cindy and John were here from 7:45 to 9:45 and we played 2 games of Pinochle which the women won LARGE! It was a fun evening.
We went right to bed to do some reading. Another great day at Chesapeake!
