Woke up to a quiet morning; the night before had extended into morning. Not feeling so ‘spry’ this particular day. On the up-side, Perdido Key is beautiful! I LOVE It! We had early visitors this morning: camp-hosts Ronnie and his wife Lonnie. They invited us to a barbecue at their site at around 3 pm today…Sunday.
We decided to ride bikes around Big Lagoon but somehow ended up walking them through the sandy swamps instead. I was scared…to say the least. Kinda like someone, rather some ‘thing‘, was looking at the buffet table and we were on it. Eeeeekkk! Not a good feeling! My gut-instinct hadn’t been too far off the truth, I realized around the bend…as we crossed over a ‘gator infested’ lake. Ugggg!
Finally, after we found our way back to camp, we readied for the barbecue and headed on over. It was fun meeting everyone; all sitting around in a circle…camp-fire style. I had a bite to eat (Nico and I took turns with baby, feeding her and ourselves) and washed it down with a ‘friendly’ debate with an old lady (Lonnie’s Mom ‘Oh my!’), about green vs. more rigs and refineries. No winner there!
On a lighter note, we later sang our songs for everyone in the circle, and I guess the family thing kinda tugged a little at my heart-strings, since I got all choked up thinking of my mom and how much I miss her everyday.
After telling everyone “thanks” and “see ya’ll later”, we headed on back to camp. We were tired, so a quiet evening of contemplating the next day’s travels was definitely in order. Lovely night…it was.
