Campground: The campground is well maintained. The sites are spacious. The campers are friendly. The verizon & satellite reception is good in D section. We attended a potluck and concert at the activity center. The band played classic rock/folk music/Irish music. The band members passed out a booklet with the lyrics of the songs so we got to sing along with the band. I had a great time.

Wildflowers: I spotted several types of wildflowers here. I’ve been having a good time identifying all of them. I started taking pictures of them for a binder. Texas Blue bonnets, Cedar Sage, Wine Cup, White Prickly Poppy, Texas Indian Paintbrush, Texas Lantana, Pink Evening Primrose, Wind Flower, Bull Nettle, Coreopsis

Hiking: Kevin and I drove over to the Attwater Prairie Chicken Wildlife Refuge. We didn’t see any Prairie Chickens but we spotted several others birds and wildflowers here. Also, we hiked around the Monument Hill & Brewery State Historic Site.

Exercise: We walked 2-3 miles a day here. Also, we did a historic volksmarch 5k around Columbus, Texas. We saw several historic houses, the river, the courthouse, water tower and some local shops in town on the volksmarch.

Birding: Killdeer, Crested Caracara, Savannah Sparrow, Northern Harrier, Vesper Sparrow, Greater Yellowlegs, Black Vulture, Eastern Phoebe

Happy RVing!

Movie- We saw A Dog’s Purpose this week. I cried at this movie. If your an animal lover you will like this movie.

Walking- I’ve been using my Fitbit everyday. My goal to make 10,000 steps a day or more. I reach my goal most days but its a challenge. The Fitbit is a great walking tool for me. The challenges with others have been motivating me to do better.

Birding- On our walks, we’ve seen a Red-tailed hawk, Yellow-rumped Warbler, White-crowned Sparrow, Canadian Geese, American Coots and Great-tailed Grackle.

Happy RVing!

Maintenance, Walking and Birding

 

Camping-Kevin and I are back at Wilderness Lakes Thousand Trails. We had a tough time finding a good camping spot. Finally, a friendly camper offered us his spot. We waiting 2 hours for him to leave. It was his first camping trip. It was worth the wait. The spot has afternoon shade, its clean and friendly neighbors. Also, the view is a nice slice of the sky.

Maintenance– We brought the rv into Temecula Valley RV to put new brake pads on. Also, the sumo springs came loose so we had those fixed too. The work was done quickly but our appointment was early in the morning so we spent the night in there overnight spot. Its not a bad place for a free overnight stay.

Walking– I’ve been trying to walk 10,000 steps a day. Its a challenge but its working for me. Kevin walks with me so that help.

Birding- On our walks we saw a Red-tailed Hawk, California Towhee, House Finch, House Sparrow  and White-crowed Sparrow.

Happy RVing!

Birding, Healthy Eating & Fitbit

Emerald Cove RV Park in Earp, California

Birding – We started a new bird list for 2017. This list will track our bird spotting for the year of 2017. We recently added the Great Blue Heron, Great-Tailed Grackle & the Double-Crested Cormorant to our 2017 bird list.

Healthy Eating- I received a wok for Christmas. I’ve been trying to make healthy meals with it. I’ll leave a link below.

Walking- Kevin bought me a Fitbit Charge 2 for our 25th anniversary. I’m so excited. The device tracks my heart rate, steps, miles and sleeping activity. It helps me calm my anxiety with a breathing technique. It also notifies me if I sit too long. At this point, the Fitbit Charge 2 is my new favorite toy. Kevin and I walked 15,686 steps in one day.  🙂

Happy RVing!

My Fitbit Profile. We could motivate each other.

Walking– Its time to walk the Christmas cookies off. Two large geese started to run after us so we picked up the pace of our walk. These geese are the reason I carry a stick during our walks here.

 Breakfast– We had a great meal at The Breakfast Club in Menifee, CA this morning. The waitress Nicole is really good there. The Breakfast Club is my favorite breakfast place in Menifee, California.

Christmas Sales– Kevin and I went to Super Target with good intentions. We were going to look at Christmas Decoration sales. We ended up with $40.00 in groceries and one new Christmas Decoration. 🙂
