Thursday morning we got a late start, it was only in the teens temperature wise. We had bacon, egg and cheese english muffins to start the day. As we went down the road, we thought we would stay in Canton at a campground, but then we did a little search and decided to try Timberlake Campground, in Ridgeland/Jackson MS. Boy, we are glad we did!
This campground has well over 100 sites, and we had a waterfront site with full hook ups, on a beautiful cement pad, for $25 a night. All paved roads, well maintained, pool, tennis courts, country setting – and you are less than a mile from a huge Kroger and several mini malls with everything you could possibly want in there. WalMart is 7 miles away, but we did not need to go there! NO cable TV, but we got about 20 channels over the air. Free wifi! Needed my external antenna but it was good, fast wifi.
For dinner we went to a place called the Lost Pizza Company and had a really good pizza and salad. We came back and just vegged.
On Friday morning I got my list and headed to the grocery store, while David hooked up the water and sewer hose. First time I went for groceries since we left PA! I did a little re-arranging of a kitchen cupboard, and made a nice dinner of salisbury steak, mashed potatoes, applesauce. It was very good. I got 2 loads of laundry done and since the weather was not too bad, Cinder and I went for a nice long walk. That was about it for the day!
Saturday, 10th, woke to wonderful sunshine! Cinder and I walked again, she loves scaring the Geese that are everywhere here! Did more laundry…took a ride around the campground with David. Dinner was fillet of beef on the grill, baked sweet potatoes, salad. We head down the road tomorrow!
