First Week

Location: Catskill, NY (High 83, Low 63)



We are already at the end of our first week here in Catskill, NY. It’s been nice to get all our stuff unpacked again and know that we were settling in for a longer stay.




I think the cats have been glad to have a break from traveling as well.







I think they may be up to something.


We have been busy! We’ve been able to go over and visit my sister and her family several times already. That is definitely the best part about being here.



We had a little excitement here in our campground this past Saturday when a new park model arrived. This is a pretty quiet campground so any comings and goings of the rv variety is a conversation matter!



You can see the park model behind Harry on the left beyond our fiver.

















We have been told that the campground will be full on Memorial Day weekend – and crazy if it follows the norm. That will be interesting to see; we can’t quite imagine it.



On Sunday we went to Albany to meet a friend for dinner and a movie. We drove by Harry’s former workplace (the tall building on the right in the picture).




I don’t think driving downtown brought any feelings of regret about retirement to Harry. Flirt male





Today was a nice day, beautiful weather and gorgeous sunshine. We had a nice meal cooked in the crockpot – pot roast and veggies. Yum.


The next couple days will be busy as well. Tomorrow we are going to get the car cleaned up and list it for sale. On Wednesday we head back to Albany for Harry’s appointment with the surgeon. We have our fingers crossed that the appointment goes well, and that the procedure can be scheduled relatively quickly!


  1. Good luck selling the car. I forgot all about it! I'm sure you are having a good time with friends and family!

  2. Tell me about your crock pot liners... easier to clean up I bet?!

    1. LOVE the crock pot liners - Reynolds Wrap Slow Cooker liners. They come 4 to a box for a few bucks, and worth every penny!! Just throw the liner away and a light washing of the crock pot is all that's required. :)

  3. The KOA here looks like a ghost town this week, we will be busy for Memorial Day but not full. 4th of July weekend is totally booked.
