Can’t believe that it’s over! I’m talking about our first trip to the Green Eggs and Ham rally that’s held at Miller’s Ferry in Camden, AL. This is a fiberglass egg celebration with a St Patty’s Day theme.
On arrival last Tuesday we are disappointed to have reserved a campsite so far from the central hub of activity. The letdown did not last long as a bitter cold wind is blowing across the lake forcing those with the prime lakefront sites to huddle down in their campers. Meanwhile we are basking in the warm morning sun, the wind blocked by the thick foliage. Our site is on an inlet, far from the river, and it’s situated so we can slip our kayaks into the stream.
This is our view from back window. Alligators were reported to live here but none are sighted.
It appears that we are all alone…..and we are!
Peaceful, quiet, spending our time watching the egrets and turtles. But this is not why we drove 275 miles! We came to socialize!
On Friday, with the temps rising into the 70’s, we found ourselves moving to a river front site, closer to friends, but still private.
We are feeling like we’re in a brand new campground…with morning sun and afternoon shade.
This is the unopened pot from the chili dump, my first night of overeating.
If there is a complaint about the rally, it is that the food is too good and too abundant! The first night started with chili, progressed to gumbo and ended with an unbelievable pot luck.

The sites are so spacious, some trailers double on a single site.

Lovely evening…note to self…must do more of this!
Today finds us alone again with the last egg pulling out this morning. And we are dug in for a few days until it’s time to head to another rally in Alabama at Joe Wheeler State Park.
Any one want to join us?
