Sunday 10-1 First Day of October

Welcome to October

The wind came up real strong last night and was strong all day. Along with the wind there was rain. It rained through the night and into the morning. When we woke up everything was wet. We hung around the Minnie until after lunch. The wind was drying up the roads so we decided to go for a walk. We walked some of the campground roads and part of the horse trail, took us about an hour and a half to walk almost 3 miles. The horse trail is out in the open through a field. It was a bit of a challenge due to hills, ruts and thick grass.

When we got back to the Minnie Larry decided to see if our television would work. The last time we used it was when we were in the Rio Grande Valley back in January. Since then we have gone down so many rough roads getting bounced around we weren't  sure if it would work. He got it working and watched the last half of a football game. I started a new book on the Kindle. I have been using the tablet but the book I wanted to read next could only be read off the Kindle. Larry loaded the book he has been reading on the tablet so he could read it at the same time as I was reading. These devices are great when you travel considering you don't have to bring the actual books. We have a small RV so it makes a big difference.

A few days ago when we were walking around New Rockford Larry saw a beautiful apple tree loaded with apples so he picked a couple of them. A little while later he came across a cherry tree so he picked one. When we got back I put them in the refrigerator. Yesterday when we were walking around after dinner we came across another fruit tree, it looked like a cherry tree so Larry picked a couple of them. When we got home we tried one of the pieces and we were surprised to find that it wasn't a cherry at all, it was a miniature plum. Then I tried the cherry from the other day, it wasn't ripe so it didn't taste very good, I ended up throwing it away. The plum tasted a little tart but wasn't too bad. We ate one of the apples and it was pretty good. Usually when we find wild apple trees the apples are very tart but these were not.

After dinner we went for a walk around the campground. We walked for 40 minutes. We're the only ones camping in the park today. Yesterday, there were people in the sites that were by the lake but by the afternoon they were all gone. We had a very windy day but the rain had stopped. It's suppose to come back later tonight.
