Green with envy

Barb, I would love to sit along a major river and watch the world pass by. Can't think of too many things that would be more relaxing. Seeing each ship pass by, brings to mind thoughts of where they've been and where they're going.

Anyone else have a favorite shoreline resting place? Would love to camp weeks at a time next to a beautiful waterway that has lots of traffic to watch. Give me your best locations.

One of our's was camping on the Homer Spit up in Alaska. Windshield full of water views. Water about 150' away.

Someone should write a book. "The 100 best waterside RV lots in America"

Pacifica, CA. with nose next to the cliff-top path overlooking the ocean. Great view, sealions sunbathing not too far away, restaurants close by, and not too busy a place. The noise was almost entirely breakers crashing below and seagulls crying in the wind. Loved it.

I'd love to be camping at water's edge ... almost anywhere. And Steve: I'd read the book!

Cheerio!
Sue

We love Sandpiper RV on Galveston Island. We watch the tankers and cargo ships in the bay go in the channel and out. Cruise ships come and go too and we are right on the beach..... It is wonderful!

Papaw Steve, if you go to Live Ships Map - AIS - Vessel Traffic and Positions - AIS Marine Traffic you can learn a lot about any ship that has a transponder on it. I often see ships here that look unusual and I go to that website and it will tell me that it's a dredge or a research vessel.

There is a hospital ship that I've seen a few times. It's painted white with big red crosses on it. I noticed that when it's headed to sea there are lots of people on deck, but when it returns nobody can be seen. I guess the novelty wears off. Or maybe they are busy packing so they can go home.

Do riverboat views count? We get our "fix" at Tom Sawyers RV Park, West Memphis, and a Corps park west of Montgomery, AL (I think it is called Gunter Hill). There are others along the Tombigbee Waterway.

R U an RV Mutant too?

Or....perhaps being ON a boat, watching whales.

Eastport Maine is a good one for that:

I stuck to building model corvettes and radio controlled airplanes, much more rewarding....

Come full circle 'round: Sky_Boss and Suspinz held both the first and the latest Mini-Curiosity. Is there a certificate for that?

So: pictures and it did happen!

PS: Now I've confused myself. Did we meet Tina (timarti) ... before or after that. Lost in the mists of time!

Don please slow down your activity before you have a bad case of retirus- meltus- downer. The rainbow road awaits your return.

Wayne those Poppers ( no not the drug kind) sound delicious. Guess whose coming to dinner and it ain't Sydney Portia?

I have been pondering the meaning of the term do-daddy. My bride says to me go get that do-daddy for coach. Now I have enough trouble with do- hickeys? That sounds like a rather sexual reference to something I think....but then it's been awhile. Now I have do-daddy's and I don't know if I should get excited or what. Someone said that do-hickeys and do-daddies are closely related. Hmmmmm I guess I better ponder on this a little more. Maybe I will get lucky!
Actually I prefer using the thig-a-ma-jig.

I have a special set of thing-a-ma-jig jigs. I crank out thing-a-ma-jigs much more quickly now.
