Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

Lazy Exploring and Visiting.

Our Location today is Marion, North Carolina, USA.

Since we weren’t signed up to go White Water Rafting this morning we slept well past the 5:45 departure time. Just knowing we didn’t have plans helped us to relax enough that we slept soundly until just after 8:00 this morning. We were that tired out from all the activities of this last week.

Even though we were in a slow lazy mode after breakfast that didn’t mean we didn’t have things to do. Kathy needed help resizing a document so we swapped computers so that I could accomplish that for her. By 9:30 we walked over to hand deliver the finished product. 

A quick stop at the Gimmarro trailer told us nobody was home. We knew that Tom and Bryce were part of the rafting group this morning but Marcie must have been out visiting as well. 

Part of our Rally Package had included a coupon to the Tom Johnson RV Dealership Store. We could have walked but since we had other errands to run we drove through the Rally Park and entered the dealership through the back gate. They had quite an array of things that anyone could use in their RV but we settled on just buying sewer hose fittings for today. 

Our next stop was down the road to fill just the main fuel tank on the truck since we’ll be exploring more of the area we’ll stop in again the day we leave to top off both tanks. 

We continued down highway 221 in search of the Walmart store that everyone kept telling us about. We drove down to the next little town with no luck before turning around. Kathy had wanted to bring the GPS but I had insisted that this was a relaxing day and if worse came to worse we could always ask for directions. 

We continued past the road to the park heading into downtown Marion again with no luck. We were headed back towards the park when we decided to have lunch at a small mom and pop fast-food restaurant called the Bantam Chef. The parking lot was full and there were even police cars going through the drive-thru. The Bantam Chef established in 1971 was hopping inside with three people working on the grill alone. We placed our order got our drinks found a table and our food was delivered less than a minute later. The food was great, tasty and reasonably priced. 

Before we left Kathy asked the waitress where the Walmart was located and we were told to take I-40 to get there. We got a few more groceries before heading back to the trailer where I had to have a Snap. That is unusual for me but I must have needed it because I felt much better afterwards. 

Around 4:30 we went with Gerry and Sandy to the Wendy’s down the road where they treated us to supper. We spent more time talking than eating and had a wonderful visit. We also made plans to go out exploring together tomorrow. 

By the time we got back to the park the sky was filling with clouds and the wind was starting to increase so we said our goodnights. Shortly afterwards the thunder and lightning rolled in and the rain has been coming in waves. We are hoping it will clear up for all our plans tomorrow.
