Can ‘nice’ be in the water?

We thought Texans were friendly when we moved there from Montana 18 years ago .  Now that we have been in Mississippi and Alabama each for several weeks, we found a whole new level of friendly.  When we were out running errands  in Mississippi we were always asked “you aren’t from around here are you?” and it always turned into a lengthy conversation.  So I’m glad we are retired now because it does take longer to go anywhere and do anything.

Now we have arrived at Foscue Creek Park in Demopolis to be a volunteer host at this wonderful Corp of Engineer park, the difference in people is even more apparent.  We have had campers just stop and chat with us as we are out checking sites, tell us their secret fishing spots, give us cleaned fish and cooked food.  Everyone waves and speaks EVERYTIME you get close to them – really nice to call this area home for three months.

I’ll post pictures soon of the park.  We have been busy getting used to working again and doing some biking, hiking, and fishing.

      We’ll be looking at the same sunset as you this week during our happy hour tradition — feet up on spare logs in our folding chairs. We feel so young during the story swapping since the other camp hosts call us ‘kids’. I know you’ll enjoy yourselves.

      You know I am the worst at even remembering to take pictures so it is Glenn doing all the clicking. Also, I’ve noticed that not working has made me a little more prone to not looking camera-presentable:)
