Sunday, July 19th- Friday, July 24th
Sunday to Thursday was spent babysitting our granddaughter so the kids could work uninterrupted unpacking and organizing their new home! We definitely had the easiest and most fun job! Our granddaughter enjoys smiling and trying to roll over.
Our stay at the Newport News Park Campground was uneventful. We had a lot of shade which was very helpful.
We did walk some of the trails early in the morning because the temperature was up to the high 90s when we were there. On our first walk we passed some Civil War Earthworks!
We read on the Newport News Park Park Campground website that along one of the walking/biking loops crosses into the Colonial National Historical Park and you can view a placard on the site of where George Washington’s headquarters were during the American Revolutionary War. From our campsite it was a 4.73 mile roundtrip walk. It was a shaded walk but it was very humid even early in the morning.
Thursday evening we said our goodbyes which was difficult. Friday morning we packed up our RV and we were on the road by 8:45 AM. We didn’t have any long delays or issues on our drive home. We stopped for lunch at a rest area and cooked grilled cheese sandwiches and soup in the RV. We are being very cautious due to COVID-19. We only used the RV restroom and ate our meals in the RV. When we needed gas, we wore our masks and sanitized our hands after filling the tank. We were home by dinnertime and had the RV unloaded before dark! We didn’t do the cleaning of the RV until the next day.
“Miss Daisy” is back in her spot at the RV storage lot until our next adventure with her. Who knows what will be next?
