It’s Memorial Day weekend and the park is filling up. Amidst a worldwide pandemic and people stuck inside of their homes for 3 months, people are itching to get out and there is no better way to do it then to GO CAMPING. RV after RV paraded past our site yesterday and I’m sure more will pass by today. This is the perfect RV park for a weekend get-a-way.
Florida has opened up. Universal Studio will open three parks on June 6. When we are out and about here in Jacksonville, you would not ever know there ever was a pandemic. You see a few masks on people and plexiglass dividers are installed in places where people have to transact person to person dealings with the public.
This is our first major camping holiday in an RV park and what I call “the weekend warriors” will be out in full force. Already we are seeing bicycles and golf carts and kids running around playing. With all of this activity, it was still quiet last night. We feel very lucky because we have nice, quiet neighbors on both sides of us. And they probably like that we are quiet as well. We checked into this park on March 1 and we’ve had the same nice, quiet neighbors during our stay here. Our stay will come on an end on June 1.
We did spend Christmas and New Years in an RV park in Central Florida and Easter here in Jacksonville and we didn’t notice any difference in camper attendance in the parks we stayed in. I don’t consider Christmas, New Years or Easter camping holidays. But, seriously, who knows what camping holidays are in the south. They for sure are not camping holidays in the North.
The high today will be in the 90s. We are expecting some rain this afternoon. I talked to my sister this morning and it is chilly back at the home base in Pennsylvania this morning. It saddens my heart that she will be doing our annual tradition without me today. For the first time in many years, I will not be joining her to carry out our annual tradition of putting flowers on the graves of our deceased family members.
God Bless, Stay Safe, and Be Kind.
