The Little RV is Snugly Tucked in for a Few Weeks

Gosh, I'm so far behind in my writing! We arrived in Connecticut on Thursday evening August, 25th. We pulled into the driveway and got settled in before anyone knew we had arrived.  When we come to Connecticut we moochdock in the driveway of Rob's oldest daughter, Meghan, her husband Alex and our granddaughter Millie. I call their home Hilliard Acres. 
Our "Site" at Hilliard Acres

 We moved fast those last three travel days because we wanted to arrive in time for a weekend get together here at Hilliard Acres. 
    That's a lot of moving for us in just three days!

 We met some of Meg and Alex's friends, Joe and Nina from London who are wonderful people. We are happy to have gotten acquainted with them. 

Murphy is loving his time here because he has so much room to run and a buddy to play with.
Murphy tormenting poor Lucy.

 We gave a lot of tours of the motorhome during the party. Everyone was very interested in seeing inside the "tour bus". 

We are planning to be here in Connecticut until the 25th of September when we head to New Jersey to visit an old school friend of Rob's. 

We are expecting a storm to arrive tomorrow.  Hurricane Hermine which has been downgraded to a tropical storm is headed our way. We are expecting some wind and rain but nothing major here. Our friend in New Jersey is under a voluntary evacuation so hopefully things will settle down before Hermine arrives. 

If you have been with us since the beginning you'll remember we were here in this very driveway for Super Storm Sandy nearly four years ago on October 22, 2012. You can read about that adventure here and here. Coincidence? You decide. We bring our own special kind of excitement wherever we go, don't we?

Since we arrived we have really just been catching up on things. Sleeping and resting, visiting, dog grooming, people grooming, you get the idea. Alex has offered to help me wash the motorhome while we're here and I plan to hold him to that offer because we are looking a bit grungy. Also Alex is very tall and can reach much higher than I can.
