The weather was a little rough starting out, but other than some wind, it turned into a pretty day for our weekly trip to Moab.
We stopped at the Moab Mailing Center where we had some items shipped. We had run out of window seed feeders for our Ho-Hummers inventory.
We needed to fill an order, so the first priority was picking up the feeders so we could get them in the mail. We were also looking for some items we had shipped in from Cabela's.
We ordered Linda some Leki trekking poles and a couple other things using gift cards we got through our Visa debit card reward points. Sometimes we forget about those reward points we earn each month just by using our wonderful Merrill Lynch checking account (FAQ #14) debit card.
So I dropped Linda off at the laundry and went off roaming as I tend to do. I wanted to see the Moab Golf Course to see if it was as pretty as this photo on the website.
The backdrop of the course is definitely spectacular, but the course itself looked like most municipal courses I've seen. It wasn't very impressive.
I then drove on to Ken's Lake to check out the campground. Now Ken's Lake is just a reservoir where snow runoff water is stored for use in the summer. It is stocked for fishing, but the lake itself is not very pretty - it looks like an oversized retention pond.
However, the BLM campground (no hook-ups) is the best BLM campground I've seen in the area for large RVs. It can accomodate any size rig easily and the views from the campground are very nice.
There is even a waterfall in these red rocks about a 1/2 mile from the campground.
We might move to Ken's Lake for a few days before we leave the area.
Driving back into town, I stopped at Moab 4 X 4 Outpost to see of our skid plates for the Jeep had arrived. Not yet.
By the time I got back, Linda was finished with the laundry. So I picked her up and we decided to just walk through some of the stores downtown.
We met the owner, another Linda, and just like that, she was interested in carrying some bracelets. She said she will only carry consignment items if she is the exclusive seller in Moab - no problem for us. :)
So she picked out a few designs, ordered a few more, and we are going to sign a contract and get set up next week. That was easy, and I didn't have to go in any other stores. :)
After that, we went to the Moab Brewery for a late lunch/early dinner. We had heard it was one of the better places to eat in Moab, and it didn't disappoint.
Finally, we did our grocery shopping and headed back.
After a walk around the campground, we just settled in for a nice, peaceful evening.
I've made it through about a third of my website "To Do" list, so I'm feeling pretty good about that. Did you notice that I've been increasing the font size on the RV-Dreams.com pages as I make changes? Hope so. Otherwise, I've wasted a lot of time doing it. :)
Well, tomorrow is supposed to be warm and sunny, so we are going to head out of the park to check out other area attractions. The photos will be back big time in the next entry.
Until then. :)
