Our daily Walk, this time, the Potomac

We are parked here ( I like to say camped, but really we just live where ever we are parked).

Potomac WALK AND MICROWAVE 031

Outdoor World has some of our membership parks, this is one. Situated on a small peninsula near the mouth of the Potomac entering the Chesapeake Bay. Our walk is a 2.5 mile walk around the peninsula on a paved road. most of the houses are on the River. I love the front yard decorations.

Several places we get a view of the Potomac as we walk.

WaLk AROUND 002

Swans on the Potomac and the other side lined with Crepe Myrtles and 10’ corn.

Potomac WALK AND MICROWAVE 028

This is the end of our walk around the peninsula.

Potomac WALK AND MICROWAVE 029

Below at the  very end of out walk around you see a part of the huge corn field that takes up the center of the road we walked except for a few houses that intrude into it. I would guess it is near a 30 acre field.

WaLk AROUND 008

A painter or writer could stay inspired from that glass room, sorta like a Widow’s Walk.

Then we re-enter the RV park. several of the corners are decorated as this one.

I gave my girl the key to the Motor Home as I stepped out to shoot this picture. Can you tell she is LOL? she finds I have left the other key in the lock while we walked.

Potomac WALK AND MICROWAVE 033

That is our daily walk. Thanks for going along.

PS: (the sermon lived not preached)

Today at 7AM, I woke up feeling ill, but decided I needed the money, so I went into work. At 3PM I got laid off. On my drive home I got a flat tire. When I went into the trunk for the spare, it was flat too. A man in a BMW pulled over, gave me a ride, we chatted, and then he offered me a job. I start tomorrow.

I saw these two 1953 Fords today, someone is about to save them.

Pretty view, thanks for the stroll. I like the Fords, but I would luv to own a Galaxy. I have no idea what year, just reminds me of one of Gma's cars!!! Safe travels!!

Nice views. I like the little glass room on top of the house. I don't know if I would write there or just stare out the window.
It wasn't good that the key was left in the door, but it was very good that it stayed there.
When I see old cars like that, I think about the old car my great grandfather drove when I was a little car. I have no idea what kind it was. Back then I could only tell you what color it was.

BEAUTIFUL walk, those are some pricey homes for sure. Sounds like you're having a wonderful trip :)

I think I would want to stay there a little longer. Love those yard decorations.

Hobnobbing with the rich and famous are you? I have never seen that place either - love the boats our front - and you didn't see George anywhere did you?

I really did enjoy the walk. What a beautiful place it would be to live. I had to laugh about the key in the door as I've left my key in the door overnight more times that I can count and it's always still there when I finally discover it. I really am enjoying the sermons lived you are posting. Thanks for including them.

on one. I will be satisfied where
I am. I have to keep Belmont going.

Enjoyed the walk. Some lovely houses are there. Love all the yard decorations. Though that plain place would suit me just fine.

Beautiful! ... But those prices are insane! (or am I hopelessly naïve?)

I'd love to see the view from that "high"-rise room.
