We woke to cold temperature again (40*F) and cloudy sky. Val made us breakfast. This was laundry day then we went into town to get some groceries at Walmart and I picked up an air and fuel filter for the truck which I will replace tomorrow, I also bought a phone for Val so that we may communicate if I am away again. The wind is really blowing and although the thermometer shows 55*F, the wind chill makes it feel much colder. We are being affected by “Sandy” north of us, we have high clouds but the sun does shine through from time to time. It seems we travelled through at the right time and speed as they are showing areas we were in a couple days ago, caught in snow storms! As Val said, good thing we left when we did!
The Park was busy earlier this morning as a group of youngster came through for a “show and tell” program. They have live iguanas and a Boa snake in cages inside the activity centre. They had the area filled with a blown-up playground and a big screen TV with mats on the floor for the kids to sit on. They also took them on a wagon ride and a small train with cars. They really had a good time from what we saw. I posted the blog and pictures; enjoy!
Another very cold night; 38*F! The sky is blue this morning and the forecast is for 60*F, at least the winds have abated and it is calm right now. The mornings are dark until about 8 AM but the sun doesn’t set until well after 6 PM. Our last day in Bremen and one more month gone by! The leafs on the trees are much greener here and just starting to change colors, there is also more pine trees around. We went for a drive to explore the area. We drove to Tallahoosa, about 8 miles west from here. A small “historical” town with museums and a beautiful park with war machines in exhibit. (See pictures). The town itself was really depressed and not much was open. There was a cotton gin which was closed unfortunately. We had lunch here in a Chinese restaurant which was so...so. We continued on to Alabama, turned south and entered I-20 back to Exit 9, Bremen, and our Park. Tomorrow, we head out south and west to Alabama.
