Ahhh, home.  Kind of.  Not really.  But close?  It did feel a little like a homecoming, since obviously most of our friends and family are in Richmond.  Upon reaching Pocahontas State Park, we had some leaks to repair.  When our bus is completely level, we end up with some leaks inside the coach.  When we lean ever-so-slightly to the front right, all of the AC condensation comes off the roof and drips off the side of the bus, near the door.  I’m not fond of the dripping right near the entrance, but it’s a whole heck of a lot better than dripping inside on my couch!

The only problem is that Billy and I are both too afraid to get on the roof.  I know, I know.  We’re complete pansies.  We’re okay with it.  Children to the rescue!

Go Finn! You’re our hero!

It was HOT, y’all.  We were completely dripping in sweat.  Finn saved the day by caulking all the way around the front AC unit, while Billy stood on the ladder by the edge giving instructions.  I don’t know how many 10 year old kids routinely handle caulking jobs, but I’m guessing not many.

Cleaning up after a job well done

With that done, Billy ran out to stock up on groceries, and I started to set things up.  We knew we were going to move campsites at the end of the week, to be closer to the playground and also closer to our friends who were coming to camp with us the following weekend.  So set up was pretty minimal.  Then I noticed the dog, who looked like she was literally baking in the sun.

I hear you, girl!

And that was that.  We grabbed her leash and set off to find shade and somewhere to cool off!

Ahhh, that’s better!

It felt good to be back on familiar ground!
