Last week we were able to get more things accomplished at our workcamp location. We completed the door replacement on the bath house, which turned out to be a bit more involved, but turned out really nice in the end. We also were able to get some trees limbed up, other "weed" trees cut down, round up applied to areas and some hay wagon boards replaced. It was a productive week!
We also were able to get some work done around the RV too. I took off all the screens and cleaned them and the windows, boy were they dirty! Rick also installed and tweaked an external antennae for better TV reception. He also further diagnosed an issue we are having with our electric hot water heater and we are waiting for the part to arrive. We then took some scenic drives to explore the area more. We are located along the Ohio River Bottom, so we took a lesser traveled narrow dirt road that skirted the river into town and found a great point to see the barges that travel the river. You can see on the other side of the river that the water is down from where it was just last week. We are currently in the midst of continual rain for several days, so I expect that level will rise again. Flooding in the area is a big concern and we have seen markings on buildings and pictures of just how high the water can get in the area and how devastating it can be.
I also wanted to try and give an idea of what the narrow road is like that we travel to get to our location. The pictures don't do it justice because you can't really see the grade and continual curve of the road, but it still amazes me that we got a 42 ft RV with a dually truck down this road. To locals, I am sure this is nothing for them to zip up and down with their car, but even with just our big dually truck it is a hold the breathe sort of moment in hopes someone doesn't come down the hill, because there is nowhere to go on this one and a half lane road.
One day when we were out on our adventures, and also completing some more of my WeGoLook work, we stumbled upon a great little Mexican place for lunch. From the outside, Diegos doesn't look like anything, but their food more than makes up for it! Each chair in the place is carved with the logo and they had cute little salt and pepper shakers to boot! The food was delicious! Rick had their signature enchiladas and some of their homemade pico de gallo. He loves his pico and this was really good. I had the polo locco which had a yummy cheese sauce. The portions were huge and we were more than full for the rest of the day!
Hopefully the rain here will stop in the next couple days as we are planning a trip into Louisville to check out Churchill Downs museum and hopefully a horse race.
