Boondockers Goodbye

It all started with the bluest sky you can imagine. The air was still morning-fresh, and Pete and Sherri were busying themselves around their rig. We knew they would be leaving today.
They came as strangers and left as friends. What a wonderful thing this Boondockers Welcome really is. Last night we had a last dinner together and kept talking until dusk settled all around us and mosquitoes started moving in. Their lights went out shortly after, and I knew they planned for an early departure tomorrow. So we didn’t sit much longer either. I’m getting tired quickly when a day is over.
Well, we got clouds and a few sprinkles of rain later, but it remained a nice Sunday. Fired up the Weber in the evening and had us some good Brats with home-made potato salad and garden-grown veggies. Forecast for tomorrow speaks of rain – we’ll see. Hopefully it isn’t getting that bad as on Friday when St.Stephen received unbelievable 160mm (6.5inch) News had it that several basements in town needed to be pumped out. It occurred to me that we’d been pretty fortunate out here, and after all the water runs out into the sea without causing damage. That is we don’t count Bea’s beautiful Peonies. Their flowers just died in the rain and there’s nothing left of them.

Take care and thanks for stopping by again!
