Blairsville, GA – Rivers Edge Rv Park (high 79, low 53)
We have friends staying the month in our other Rv lot here at Rivers Edge. She and I worked together at USAA and both retired at the same time. They live in Wesley Chapel (where we stay between here and the Keys). They have been here since the first of July have been enjoying their stay. They like to lounge around quite a while in the mornings, but yesterday, we decided we needed to get them out on an early bike ride. We surprise them yesterday morning, when we knocked on their door and invited them to go on a bike ride with us!
We were a little cautious about where we rode the bikes, because on Monday, while riding the golf cart, we got chased by two dogs. Most of the people that live in the houses in the area, seem to be decent people, but there is one family that have some mean dogs and they like to take them for walks off leash. Last year one of the dogs attacked and bit an older lady from here at Rivers Edge. She was a passenger in a golf cart, the dog chased them, and ended up biting the woman. The sheriff was called but they were informed there was no leash laws here, and they couldn’t go anything about the dog or the owners. I have a hard time believing that, but that’s what he said. Anyway, when we were riding in the golf cart the other night, a skanky looking woman with tattoo’s from head to foot was walking with two mean dogs. They weren’t on a leash, and they started chasing the golf cart. One dog got up right beside the cart inches from my feet, then went around to Al’s side. We didn’t want to run the dogs over,(I guess it’s the animal lover in us) but Al sped up and the lady finally called the dog and we got safely away. It made us a little nervous about riding our bikes near where they live though.
After our bike ride yesterday morning, we went back to town, and back to Home Depot (for the third time). We decided yesterday should be a little more of a laid back day, so after we got home we had a nice long nap. After the nap we puttered around the lot the rest of the day. I did laundry and planted flowers, while Al did his thing. We enjoyed watching all the birds that are rediscovering our feeders.
The temperature never got out of the 70’s yesterday, but it was humid so it felt a little warm. We were anxious for predicted cooler weather to come and it finally did later in the afternoon. We decided to light up our propane fireplace to take the chill off.
After a while, it was starting to get a little chilly, so we decided to warm up in the hot tub for a while. Ahhhh, the life!
We slept well with the windows open and a wonderful breeze coming in the open windows. I ended up grabbing another blanket during the night, and this morning we had to put on long pants and sweaters. The cooler weather feels so nice after the past few months in the Tampa heat.
