For the second time now, we are staying at Downtown RV.
We like this place because it is within walking area of a lot of places. It has some shade and the main reason this time, is that friends Steve and Karen (GoneByRV blog) area here.
We arrived on Saturday morning after a pleasant drive from Mid South Naval Station outside of Memphis. Our reserved spot was open and we got set up in no time. There is a good group of people here and they have a nightly social hour. Its always nice to chat it up and get to know some new folks.
On Saturday evening we had a potluck under the big shade tree in the RV park.
Speaking of eating - we heard of a new dish in Red Bay: biscuits and chocolate gravy. Chocolate gravy? never heard of it. Biscuits and sausage gravy is common but it is known here as 'white gravy'. The chocolate gravy is something I had to try.
I walked a block over to the Red Bay Food Mart and got two to-go boxes for bacon, scrambled eggs, and biscuits and gravy -- one with white gravy and one with chocolate gravy.
I don't think so. It's a wonder I didn't get sick. I didn't feel quite right the rest of the day. But now I know. I can say, "No thank you after giving it a try."
But the food at the potluck was really great. Pam made an Asian Salad, Karen made a fruit salad and cupcakes, Marty made Navy beans with ham and rice, Yvonne made deviled eggs, Suzanne brought shrimp cocktail and wrapped bacon weenies, and Nancy and Dave cooked some brots. It was a feast.
On Sunday, Pam and I went for a long walk over to the Allegro Campground and back. It has been very warm here but we got out and back before it started to heat up. I found a large shade tree to wipe down the CRV and wax it. Then we downloaded a sermon and listened to it in the Roadrunner Chapel.
Later Joe came over from the Red Bay Self Service RV Park and we had a nice long chat. Hadn't seen him and Carolyn since the Tampa RV show in January. It was a nice Sunday.
Later on in the afternoon we watched some golf and joined in the social hour/pot luck. It has been a fun start to our time in Red Bay.
Happy Labor Day!
Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
