On Monday we dropped off the coach at Country Coach, the place where it was built, for some minor repairs, or at least we hope minor. We had planned to stop and have them adjust the pocket sliding doors, which were hanging up. Donna got stuck in the bathroom, which was both funny and a little frightening. We had also made an appointment for them to defog the driver’s side dual-pane window, but upon arrival we noticed that three of the wheels were leaking a little oil on the tires. It seems the seals had dried out due to non-use, so we asked them to check that out too. They estimated they could do all the repairs in two days so we checked into the small hotel where the RV Park is located. We are the only guests…got the whole place just to ourselves.
As I write I am looking out a big picture window watching the Willamette River flowing by. It is close to flood stage and moving swiftly; I sure would not want to fall in. This morning was beautiful with bright sunlight shining through the bare tree branches dancing to a slight breeze like ballroom performers all moving in a choreographed arrangement.
Basically, we are just killing time and went to the movies yesterday. We saw HOP, a cute story about the Easter bunny. Going out to eat can be an adventure if you will stay away from the fast food and chain restaurants. We had breakfast at the local watering hole Jake’s café in Harrisburg and received some old-fashioned service with a charming smile and friendly atmosphere to go with their thick bacon, hot coffee, warm biscuits and gravy, hot pancakes and eggs any way you like them. Almost makes one want to move back to a small one street town. On second thought I kind of like being able to shop in supermarkets and I would miss Fry’s Electronics.
