A Low Key Day

2012-10-18_13-23-29_832Yesterday was a more low key day.

We did a load of laundry, relaxed, took a walk around the campground. It was so great to be walking around in shorts in late October.

The day started out sunny, but the clouds started coming in during the afternoon. By the time we headed down to the village, there was definitely a change in the air.




There seemed to be a few more people around, coming in for the weekend maybe.




We stopped for a frozen custard. That has been one of my favorite finds of the week.



We did get bummer news last night. The showing was cancelled for tomorrow, the reason given was that the buyer had to go out of town. We are hoping that it will be rescheduled. And we have the open house on Sunday, so at least something is happening this weekend. <sigh> We felt discouraged last night though.



Overnight it rained, pretty hard at times, and it’s cloudy, but still warm out – in the 70s today. And, we actually slept in until 8 am today!! I wish it didn’t take all of vacation for us to get to that point.



So far today has been another low key day. In a little while, people should start coming in for the rally, so we will be out and about chatting, I’m sure. Smile


  1. I've never had frozen custard. will have to try it sometime. Sorry about the disappointment on the showing though

  2. Looks like I'll have to put Cape May back on our list of easy and relatively close getaways hopefully for next year. I'm sure Dave and I could both use some time at the seashore. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Looks like a nice area. It's cool here and suppose to warm up on Sunday. 70's ya!!
    Don't get to discouraged. We were at the point to lower our asking price(4 1/2 mon on market)and got a offer. The right buyer will come along.

  4. Awww, the kitties are happy with their window seat.

  5. I love the picture of your cats looking out the window. I have a bird feeder outside the back window of the fifth wheel for our cat to enjoy. I know you're disappointed the showing got cancelled, here's hoping for a prospective buyer during your open house.

  6. The village looks really cute!! I would have been so jealous at your frozen custard treat, but Jerry and I found a frozen yogurt shop today, so we had a treat too!! Ha!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  7. Sounds like you guys are having a great, relaxing time. Yum on the frozen custard! Don't get too discouraged on the house yet. It's hard, especially when you have in your mind that every showing could be 'the one'.
