We have spent the past several days trying to buy a hotspot. The local AT&T store did not have one in stock last Saturday. They said they would have one sent from Knoxville, TN and it would be in on Monday. It wasn’t. It was not in on Tuesday either so we drove to Asheville, NC and bought a hot spot and five Gb of prepaid data ($50) at an AT&T store there. The day before we had driven to Knoxville, TN to buy a surge protector for the motorhome. Apparently, power surges can fry the inverter. I think we have driven to Newport, TN everyday for an endless stream of errands. I am so sick of driving and running errands.
We got the new hot spot set up last night and got on line for the first time in two weeks. Daughter Jennifer posted a real estate video of our house in Lusby, MD on FaceBook. That looked fun. Our old house has changed a lot since we moved onto the boat in 2001.
The morning was beautiful, but it began to cloud up by noon. Spence joined us for left-over chili and we ate lunch outside. Spence went back to work. We had a good rain and he stopped by, wet, before he left for the day.
We were at our computers in the early evening when both of us were bumped off line. I called AT&T technical support and discovered that we had used ALL FIVE GIGABYTES of our pre-paid data in less that twenty-four hours!! That was $50! How could that be? So, our on-line lives are going to be limited to the bare essentials. No videos for sure. I’ll have to see how much data this email uses and delete some photos, if necessary.
Here is a man fishing upstream of the bridge in Big Creek.
Spence swept his way out of the ladies room as we walked by the toilet building in the picnic area.
This is the horse trail from the host site to the horse camp.
I took this misty photo as we were walking up to the picnic area parking lot, on our way to the tent campground.
I have not been very successful getting a picture of raindrops on leaves. They show up but they don’t sparkle.
This leaf was on the path next to the ones on the bush above. The droplets are on the underside of the leaf. I thought is was interesting how the droplets are different on top and bottom. I guess the leaf ribs catch the water.
