Our Sea Pines Adventure Continues…

We have been at Sea Pines Thousand Trails in Swainton, NJ now for a little over a week.  Our daughter Daisy and her family were down last weekend for the holiday, but they stayed at Lake and Shore, just up the road.  I have to say that Sea Pines is much more roomier.  Hopefully Sea Pines will spend the money and upgrade all the sites to 3 point sites in the future.  But with free honey wagon service twice a week it is not a problem.

This weekend we had something we haven’t had in a while, LIQUID SUNSHINE!  Yes, it actually rained on Saturday.  So we spent most of the time in the RV.  Around 4 PM it finally stopped raining and we took a drive, up North.  We drove up to find Chestnut Lake.  We were members there back when it was a NACO park.  Drove through and found it to be a lot cleaner than we remembered.  Will have to make a trip there sometime for camping.  I was disappointed that the $50,000 littering fine sign was gone.  It always amazed me that they would charge that much for littering.  Guess it didn’t work out.

While we were on our little trip we stopped by Allens Crab Shack in New Gretna on Route 9.  This was an old time favorite eating place when we were camping at Black Bass State Forest in the mid 90’s.  We were still tent camping back then.  The place still looks the same.  Daisy was a little disappointed that they didn’t have Oyster Stew, but she loved the Clam Strips. I had Shrimp and Scallops, really good.

My new electric scooter should arrive on Tuesday.  Ended up saving more than $100 on it. I was going to order it from Wayfair but it was out of stock, so I searched the web and found it on Overstock for about $50 less!  As I was ordering it, I was ‘qualified’ for a 10 percent discount, saving another $55 and free shipping.  Now I will be able to do the Boardwalk without being in a lot of pain and discomfort.

Speaking of discomfort, yesterday, I was sitting at the computer, watching Harry Potter, when the chair broke.  The back of the chair snapped off.  The metal pole stabbed me in the back.  Hurt like hell for about 30 minutes.  So sometime today the chair will go back to Walmart and I am getting a plain old metal chair.

Well, time for me to make breakfast, egg omelet with fried onions, mushrooms, ham and cheese.
