Another Favorite Site
This is site 1A, the site of Marshell and Jan. The rig in the background is not theirs. That is site 1. Being retired and full of wanderlust, this couple travels quite a bit. We all get to hear about their adventures.
Every time they return, they rebuild their fire pit. HeWho mows never dismounts to move obstacles in his way and he sometimes creates obstacles when he bumps into things ..... trying to get a nice close cut. I get the job of apologizing for his actions and if I see the mess he makes, I clean it up.
This particular site hosts a concrete pad that was here when we bought the kampground. Lest you be thinking I favored this couple so much that I put it in. I might give them produce from my gardens or even bake a treat, but one has to draw the line somewhere!
While I did build the initial gardens in the areas that were hard to mow (I am nothing, if not practical), Jan has given them her personal touch.
I had neglected the weeds the past few seasons. I was busy visiting my Dad for as long as I could and nothing here seemed to matter so much. It is amazing what a good weeding and new mulch will do, though. Not having to tackle this myself is the very best part!!
I appreciate kampers who take pride in their sites! Not to mention that Marshell is always up for a lively debate and I do enjoy a good argument. I will even conceded that he sometimes has a good point ... or two.
