Sunday, 5 October 2008


Today was another quiet day in Tranquil Acres land. I did my usual morning routine. It was cloudy and pretty cold at 3C (38F) just after 8 a.m. We eventually got to around 13C (56F) with it alternating between sun and cloud for the day.

I read, made 2 necklaces (photos below) and we talked with Dave about becoming seasonal here at the park. Seasonal is 76 days. There is a rate for that then if you stay longer than 76 days you pay $12/day. We're still thinking about it as we're not sure what we'll do next summer. If Gordon is feeling well enough we may go west to Lake Superior. He's been wanting to go there to take photos since our trek west in 2005. We really hate making plans written in stone as this lifestyle allows us to be flexible so we like to keep that option, however this park is limiting it's transients and heading more towards seasonal so if we want to stay here, that may be the only option.

We were also looking at parks to stay at in the Rockport area as well as our route to take as we head south from Ohio. Right now it looks like we will take I-71 to I-65 to I-20 to I-12 to I-10 where we plan to stay around Lake Martin, LA (Breaux Bridge area) for a while. From there we're only a couple of days to Rockport so we're talking about staying at League City, TX again on the way to Rockport for a day or so and maybe seeing if we can get over to Galveston if they're allowing people on the island at that time. The drive from Breaux Bridge, LA to Rockport, TX is over 400 miles. We could do that in a day but I'd rather we didn't. We'll see when the time comes.

Other than that, the day passed quickly. With the shorter days, it seems the days go fast. Not looking forward to the time change!

  1. Sherri and I will still be working when you come to Texas. We will have some time off for some short trips so maybe we can meet up some time during your stay in Rockport. I know that many other Dreamers will be staying in Rockport so we can visit with many of our friends at once. It is good to hear you are getting to come south.
