Wednesday, November 15 – Day 78
Another sunny humid day greeted Lynda and I as we poked our heads out of the trailer. The A/C ran most of the night waking me several times.
The high humidity covered everything with heavy dew as if a summer storm had passed during the night. The palm tree towering over our trailer shedded huge droplets of dew through the morning.

Sunday, November 5 – Day 68
After the long drive, the previous day and a late night at the Grand Ole Opry a day of rest was in order. The cloudy morning sky soon passed allowing the sun to warm the cool morning air to a humid 80-degrees.
Bob, our 'Boondocker Welcome' host dropped by for a morning visit, we picked his brain about Watertown activities and restaurants. He recommended the Mexican restaurant for dinner mainly because they allow a brown bag of spirits.
He also mentioned a Sunday Read more [...]
