East coast camping

Here’s Loyal Reader Number Four walking down the road in an east coast campground. The camping was certainly green and beautiful there. And wet. Part of my famous Camping series.

I have a serious problem with the Morrowlife blog. It’s taking way too much of my precious home time. That’s one of the main reasons why I bought the data plan for my phone – the hope is to get it done and posted during the evening commute every day, leaving me free to eat, do high council work, watch computer-based TV shows, and even possibly visit with my family. And maybe get to bed on time once in a while.

There is one small problem, though: the phone’s battery life stinks. Every night on the way home from work since I turned on the data plan, the phone has died from lack of chargage. I’m thinking of getting another charger I can keep at work. That would fix me up.

Or maybe it’s just that I’ve been playing with the web/texting/email too much during the day. Still, the battery ought to last WAY longer than that. Sigh.

Anyway. Not much else going on so far today. That’s about to turn around, though. My non-Loyal-Reader brother-in-law Ken is in town and is stopping by for dinner and (hopefully) an evening of chatting. He’s going home tomorrow, apparently, which is a good thing because my non-Loyal-Reader sister-in-law Melanie (AKA his wife) had surgery today to replace the elbow joint she broke a couple of days ago. She might like him to lend a hand for a few days.

Or maybe not. Friends of Ken will know that of which I speak.

But we’re looking forward to his visit this evening.

Loyal Reader Number Four and I selected our cruise side trips last night. We’re going ATVing at one place, visiting a glacier and salmon hatchery at another, doing something fascinating that I can’t remember right now but am tremendously excited about at another, and visiting the world-famous Bouchart Gardens in Vancouver. Should be a real fun trip.

I’m excited to be spending several days at sea on this cruise – we were ashore every day on the Disney cruise a few years back, which was our only other similar experience. I didn’t feel I had enough time to just explore the ship and relax. This time, we’re only off the ship for four of the ten days, one of which will only last something like six hours. So we’ll have plenty of ship time.

I want to play shuffleboard. Also recline on a deck chair, read a book, and watch the world go by.

Oh, I just remembered what the other excursion is. We’re getting on a little boat in the harbor and going to see an eagle preserve of some kind, a bunch of authentic totem poles, and a bunch of other stuff. I believe there’s also a bunch of authentic Alaskan food. Whale blubber and that sort of thing. Yum.

That’s about it for now. Work Friday tomorrow. See you then.
