Staying at Port Hudson Marina and Rv Park

Our first day here has exceded expectations.  First, you should know that this is not a deluxe paved site resort with pool, clubhouse and tennis courts.  It does have water, sewer, and 30 amp hook-ups but it's a little scruffy and the sites are close together.  The place has a worn look to it, but we don't mind because we are here for the view and we love it.  This is certainly on the top of our list of places we'd come back to.

When we arrived yesterday we checked in at the marina office, and got asked the usual question.  Where are you from?  We are still struggling how to answer.  Even though we now have the same street address as several thousand other full-timers it just doesn't feel right to say Sioux Falls.  So I usually say we are from Michigan, but now have a SD address.  Maybe we'll figure out a better answer as we go along.

This morning we awoke to fog, but it has burned off and we have been on our first walk of the day.  Mollie  joined us as we took a leisurely walk around the marina and harbor.  Like I said before, "nuthin better than messing around with boats".

On another note.  I'm a sucker for the Geico ads.  Do you remember the tongue twister about Woodchucks?

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
He would chuck, he would, as much as he could,
and chuck as much wood as a woodchuck would
if a woodchuck could chuck wood.

Yes I'll admit it, I'm easily amused.

Until later
