Tuesday, Nov. 8 brought another beautiful sunny sky but very strong 8 mph winds throughout the day with gusts at 12 mph. It was a no-awning day, there will be a lot of those and that is okay by me. I love my sun.

So, we had decided not to go anywhere today, just hang around the park and do our own thing. Bill asked at the park office about washing the vehicles and we have permission for a $5 fee. That is great, the Suite and King need a bath.
Bill set up his ladder on the west side of the rv to wash the side that was shaded in the morning. His routine was a bit different from the way he washes it at home, he used just the pail and hose instead of our pressure washer.
This suited me
fine, since our Suite faces the east, I was able to sit outside with Clemson and read my book . Another good one,
different from the mysteries I’ve read lately, The Dry Spell. The wind was
blowing from the east so it was a perfect day to be outside and the spray from
the hose was not coming in my direction. Bonus! I recall days of having to move my
chair location a number of times to avoid getting an outdoor shower.

Around noon hour we had company come in beside us. First feeling is disappointment; we like our privacy as long as we can get it and the fifth wheel two sites over has not had inhabitants since we arrived. Seems to be a very nice younger couple and they are here full-time with no departure date in sight. They are employed at the Walmart in Sierra Vista so we won’t see a lot of them but will be someone to talk to when the mood strikes. They are from Pennsylvania. Clemson is happy, they don’t have any pets, so he is ‘top dog’.
Today is also election day so Bill will be interested in tonight’s results but being Canadians we have not opened any conversations related to the political parties running. So as not to start a discussion on here, since I’ve never been into politics, I will leave it at that and see what tomorrow brings.
I finished my book and when we walked with Clemson around the park, I dropped it off at the clubhouse where two couples were involved in a game of cards. Of course, the ‘Good Guys’ were winning!
With the wind so strong, Bill decided to wait until Wednesday to wash the east side of our Suite in the early afternoon. For dinner, I cooked up a mess of leftover sausage chunks, pasta, veggies and broth inside as we don’t have a shelter for our Weber Q (yet).
It was a great day and we were inside after dinner for the evening. It does get dark early. We watched a couple of taped recordings of The Voice to get up to date and bits of the election and a movie before I retired at 9:30pm. I could keep my eyes open no longer.
I hope you had a great day as well! I hear it was quite balmy in our home province of Ontario, which is great, they will get hit soon enough.
