We had a visit from a RV.Net forum member and blog reader Jim Maddox today. He lives here on Sinlcair Lake. Thanks for stopping by Jim. Jim and his wife Judy are fulltime wanna-be's and I know they have thousands of questions to asked. They may be out tomorrow.
Today started out with a morning walk,then we took our lounge chairs down to the beach to soak up some sun. After showering and sitting around for a while I grilled a couple of steaks for dinner. Then we went for another walk this evening. This type of life is tough but someone has to do it.

When we got back to the motohome in the WalMart lot we put the clothes up and did some grocery shopping. We did this because we will be in the forest for a few days without going into town.
Here is the entrance to the Sinclair Lake Campground which is in the Oconee National Forest.

After a couple of hours we stopped in the small town of Lexington(wonder how many towns in the USA with the name Lexington)to eat a late lunch. After lunch we walked from one end of town to the other(one whole block and a half).

We went over and spent the day with Joe and the family. Nancy did the laundry while we were there. I don't know how far or where we will be tomorrow before we stop for the night. We never make reservations so we don't know where we will be until we get there.

On the long slow trip up the mountain you will go through a couple of tunnels.

From there we stopped in to visit again with Joe and family. We had dinner with them again and came home with a loaf of pumpkin bread that Cherisa had baked. On the way home I stopped for gas which is now $3.49 a gallon. Then stopped one more time for whipped cream to go on the pumpkin bread. Oh it tasted good.
I saw this sail boat out on the lake today. This was an unusual site because all the ol' boys have the boats with the large motors on them. Matter of fact yesterday there were about 20 of them that took off all at once.
Nancy fixed a good pot roast today that we took over to Joe's for supper.

I started to fill up my fuel tank last night but I didn't and boy,wish I had of. I went to the station here close to the campground today and they were sold out. The stations in town were selling regular gas for $5.00 a gallon and still selling out.

Nancy like to come to Pigeon Forge because there is a good used book store with a lot of books and they will take her books as trade in. This time around she had 8 bags of books to trade. Of course the book store is the winner in this deal as she got 2 bags of books and she had to pay $17.00. But still cheaper then buying new books. That woman reads a bunch of books.
After the books store we went to visit Joey a couple of hours then it was of to WalMart to do some shopping on the way home we stopped at the Little Caesar's Pizza and got a "hot and ready". With a late start on the day that was our eventful dy.a

I got up early enough this morning to look out the window and saw the sun coming up over the mountain and looking into the lake. I said thank you Lord for another beautiful morning.
After we had a jelly biscuit and a cup of coffee we poured another cup and went outside to enjoy the morning for a while longer. When we got ready we went to the laundromat where Nancy had a large load of clothes to do. The rest of the day was spent just relaxing.

We moved out to Douglas Lake to stay a while longer in the area. We have some business to attend to before we leave and we will stay extra days.
