Florida to Alabama and The Rainbow Plantation.

Summerdale, AL.

41 deg. clear, no wind.

Forecast = Mostly sunny in the morning becoming mostly cloudy. Highs around 60. Northeast winds 10 to 15 mph becoming 5 to 10 mph in the afternoon.

Randy and Terry came over about 9:00 yesterday morning. They were heading out to do some shopping and wanted to say good-bye. After h and h, (hugs and handshakes), they left and Jim and Linda continued getting me ready to travel.

Jim and Linda both said that they really enjoyed their time with Randy and Terry and are looking forward to seeing them again sometime soon. : )

By 9:45, CLT was hooked to the back of me, we were pulling out of the park and heading back to I-10.

Once on 10 we continued West. There were a couple construction areas along the way, but nothing major and before I knew it, we were crossing into Alabama. We stayed on 10 until we came to Rt.59, where we turned south and followed it down here to Summerdale. Then, we turned west and took county road 28 to the Rainbow Plantation. 

It was 12:30 when we pulled up to the office, so yesterday, we traveled 150 miles in 2 hours and 45 minutes.

Now, I had never been to this park before, but as soon as we pulled in, I could see that it was almost, if not completely, full!!! Besides that, Jim had read someones blog in the morning and they had stated that the Plantation only had 3 sites available on the day before!!!

I just knew that there weren't going to be any sites available!!! : (

Well, we had to wait a little while to find out if there were any sites available as the office was closed for noon, but when they reopened it, Jim went in, and found out that they had 2 sites available and the one I was getting even had 50 amp service!!!!  : )

So, Jim drove me around to Teal Avenue and backed me into site # 16. It's a nice site with shade trees on both sides, it has full hook-ups and is fairly level.

I still don't know exactly how long we'll be staying here, but however long it is, I'll be nice and comfy. ; )

A little before 4:00, Jim and Linda took CLT and headed over to the clubhouse for "social hour". At "social hour", people who have just come into the park, (like Jim and Linda), are introduced and everyone is informed about the activities that will be happening in the park in the near future.

After the meeting was over and Jim and Linda had talked to some people, they came back here, had tacos for dinner and then watch TV and played with the computers until bedtime.

Did you know that it is illegal to sell peanuts in Lee County, Alabama after sundown on Wednesday?
