This is our 5th campground since we bought our RV on September 4, 2013. At the conclusion, we decided these were the best 40 days of our life! We arrived a few days before Jessica went back to work after maternity leave and before Colin’s 3rd month of life. We were only six miles from them, so it was convenient.
We got a 30 day discounted price, but we ended up staying a bit longer as well. We decided it was worth the extra price as this is a very nice campground. We could walk about two miles every night, if we didn’t mind a circle or two! Here is a picture of Jessica walking with her dad and pushing Colin when we first arrived!
We also began hiking with Jessica and Colin on Saturdays. We had several birthdays to celebrate, so we meet my sister, her husband, her son and grandson two times, once in Richmond and once in Williamsburg. It is great being close to them. The picture to the right is a picture of my sister and her grandson, our daughter and me (Debbie) during our visit to Richmond. And to the left is Bill, grandpa, holding our precious Colin! We think he likes us because he smiles at us all the time! : – )
I like to end with a spiritual note of some sort. So as we think about 40 days (or nights) I think of the spiritual significance of this number in the Bible! We know Jesus was tempted in the desert for the same length of time! I’m sure during that time, it felt like forever – but then the Lord knows what forever is, so it was maybe like seconds for him! For us, this time also flew by but at the same time, we savored every minute!
