I've got entries but will need to find free wi fi before I update. Our RV Park has it "available" for $7 a day - not happening. BUT we were out driving and found a connection - thank you to The Normans - whoever they may be.
Convention has begun. The flu hit the last two children yesterday. I think we're on the road to health and fun again.
I CAN check email at the Park so feel free to email. ::snort::
Now, gotta see if I can find some waypoint for a geocache or two.

Battery Point Lighthouse - love this one. Mom G knew the children who lived here. They would have to row across the harbor and go to school each day.
The Warning Sign - on the jetty Hunting for Agates
Mike and the older boys climbed the tetrapods and went to the very end of the jetty.

Too tired to load photos tonight and tomorrow will be early. BUT had to post something....
Quote of the day: After throwing up for the first time in her life, Stacia said, "Wow!"
Mike and the children returned home with photos and stories of their night on the beach. They were surprised Stacia was sleeping and I quickly filled them in.
We decided I would try to do some smelly laundry while Mike and the children showered.
Stacia seemed fine. We headed for town. We picnicked at a Kids Town park. We walked on the pier and took lots of photos of my light house. We searched for agates.
My folks arrived. Dad was tired and hurting and went to rest. Mom caught up with us at the beach. We all headed over to Mom and Dad G's. Mike sister, Mary K and her husband John had arrived. Rebecca, Mike's other sister arrived. We had a BBQ.
Home now but need to be up decorating and such early....so photos later.
Thanks for the prayers for Stacia. We suspect bad milk with the fridge problem. Debbie, thank Bri for his comments. All the trailer manuals were inadvertently left home....his comments about the fridge confirm what Mike was thinking.
Stacia just woke up. She threw up in our bed where she and I were cuddling since all else are sleeping snugly on the river beach. ::snort::
Pray this is a ONE time thing and not the flu bug. We cannot have sick ones around Dad G - especially not with tomorrow's shindig.....there is so much to do today and tomorrow with the party tomorrow.....I really need to be able to help, but I really have a thing about leaving sick kids....spending lots of "alone time" with the flu bug going through the camper.

other photos. We miss you Josiah! (Don't forget to water the lawn! ::snort::)
I did not nag. In fact, I was content. ::snort:: However, it became apparent that our trailer is not set up for "real" camping. The fridge quit working. I have no clue why....but it wouldn't cool. The battery totally died yesterday. We charged it with the van and it died again BEFORE bedtime....no lights, furnace, fridge, water pump.....not a big deal when we packed for camping....but we have no warm blankets, no coolers for food, no containers to haul water.....and so...
Our second site is also in a very pretty setting. We have a field for Frisbee behind the trailer, you can see the ring of mountains...all in all a very nice horse pasture it is. ::snort:: We are chuckling at how our views have changed...from "gee WHIZ can't they even get along without their electric for a weekend" to "OK - let's camp in the horse pasture!". ::snort:: Really, it all comes back to how you are packed. This has convinced us to keep one of our tents, one of our solar showers and such. Look how close our slide out is to the concrete divider.The younger four love these dogs that are across the field. The dog was better at Frisbee than the children. ::snort::
