A Harvest Host in Gastonia NC. Unfortunately, they are closed on Tuesdays. Darn. Beginning NEXT Tuesday, it will be $1 Taco Tuesday Night. Double darn. Nevertheless, they let us park here overnight.
We were parked at a noisy corner, but it was free, no hookups of course. The noise allowed us to (guilt-free) run the generator to use the AC in the afternoon – it was rather warm. We were parked on the other side of this building:
These pictures turned out pretty good considering I put my camera against the window to take:
With a day of drizzly rain and thinking to the days ahead with limited amenities, Saturday was a shopping/cooking day mainly. I was the sous chef. To the left, green peppers sent back to the sous chef for a smaller dice (on the right).
Meanwhile at the stove ..
Midway through the process, turkey meatloaf, turkey taco meat, sauteed mushrooms and leftover onions/green pepper for the next creation.
I went to the spice cabinet – quite the selection! – and made the turkey taco seasoning (nine different things to measure).
Little quiches for an easy breakfast. The leftover mushrooms are for Sunday’s baked potato dinner. There are also two turkey burgers in the freezer. Then Billie made dinner ,,
brown beans and cornbread:
“That’s enough butter, Arlete.” Although there might be a few of my relatives who disagree.
On Sunday, it was time for cleaning (Billie) and laundry (Arlete) and generally getting ready to leave tomorrow.
Well, sort of. There’s always a lot to do on days we don’t ride. Errands, purchases, planning, more cooking usually, including prepping breakfast and lunch for the next day if there’s a ride. At the end of the day, Billie said, “We got a lot done today.” And this is the only picture I have to show for it:
Aldi’s has very good wine at $3. It was time stock up. We actually have a wine cellar. You go out the door, down the steps and turn left. Open the passenger door and …
there on the floor of the passenger’s side in a big strong bag filled with Winking Owl.
It was a relatively short drive from Norlina to Selma NC – about 100 miles the way we came – and Billie had some driving adventures. A missed turn in one small town allowed her to practice several right and left turns on narrower streets. Then there was the hailstorm. (So glad I wasn’t driving!)
We arrived at RVacation RV park in Selma by mid-afternoon to sunshine and (at last) warmer weather. We are southeast of Raleigh and near several very good bike trails.
We like our campsite, there is a bank of trees and shrubs on the side we use the most.
