It was chore day.
Pay all the bills, tidy up, get a grocery list together, write postcards, prepare a crockpot meal (did you know that you can do lasagna in the crockpot? I saved half of it to take over to Lowell tomorrow), give Brett a haircut, reorganize all the boxes in the basement now that we've moved Lowell's stuff into his apartment and do the laundry. It's just as efficient to stay with the laundry and wait for it as it is to come back and keep going over to check on it. But there wasn't much in the way of reading material today. Brett will read just about anything!
We did chat with a nice lady from Germany who is traveling with her husband from Las Vegas to here to Yosemite and back to Vegas. They are driving a 25 ft Class C rental and need to find a repair shop because the mirror got broken (been there, done that). I was in the office this morning when they checked in and ended up "translating" for the reservation clerk. No, I don't speak German but for some reason I could understand their accented English where the clerk could not. I felt very helpful.
I read recently that one was to be a successful traveler is to look at everything closely and then look at it again. While roaming the KOA I did notice these few things:
All of the rental bicycles are chained and seem to be stored away for the winter. They must do quite a brisk bike business in the summer because there certainly are a lot of them. You cannot rent a bike but you can still swim in the pool. The water is heated but our new German friend said that it was cold.
Lowell checked in with us this afternoon. He had a successful orientation day and wants to meet up with us tomorrow. We can hopefully find a grocery store so he can get supplies and then possibly we'll go see a few of the Seattle sights. I am sure that it will be another eventful day.
