The church parking lot where we’ve got
is used during the week by the college next door. It starts to fill up by 8:30am, so we fired up Sherman just after 7:00am and drove to another church down the road where we could sit for a couple of hours until the propane place opened. Sherman
There is only one propane fill station in this part of the
Some nice old homes in the Annapolis Valley
Then, we drove the backroads to the town of
where we sat and used the library internet for a couple of hours. There was a very bad windstorm that went through this area on December 13th, and a lot of trees were knocked over. Now that the snow is gone they are still cleaning up from that storm. Some people’s yards had a lot of damage and it almost looks like there are logging operations going on. Sorry we didn’t get any suitable pictures. Berwick
Then we went on to the Greenwood Shopping Mall. Yes, they have a free RV dump station at the mall. We’re really surprised that Walmart hasn’t taken to providing a free dump station and water fill at their stores. Or some kind of deal whereby if you spend a minimum amount at the store, you get to use the dump station.
It was about 50 kms (30 miles) each way to
, so it was nice to get out for a short drive. There are a lot of orchards, small farms, and farmers markets in the area, so it will be nice in the spring when things get green and growing! Greenwood
We had to be back in Kentville for 5:00pm for Whiskey’s vet appointment. As I had mentioned when I posted the blog yesterday, she slept well Sunday night, and was pretty good all day Monday. We haven’t given her any medication, and she’s not even leaking. It’s very strange. Anyhow, the vet wants to discontinue the antibiotics, as she thinks that’s what caused the problems we had on Sunday. They gave us a credit for the ones we hadn’t used, so that was very fair of them. And we will wean her off the diuretic over the next few days, and reduce the heart contraction medication. Keeping fingers crossed that she can live somewhat of a normal life after that. I still think we're missing something, like a blockage or restriction in her esophagus maybe, but there's no way to tell for sure without another xray, and then from what I've read there would likely be no treatment for something like that anyhow. We'll take it one day at a time.
Parked back up at the church tonight. Giving Lindsey, Justin, and Cameron some time to themselves to get settled at home. Not much sun today, and we need to conserve battery power for the furnace, so just sat and read books by one light this evening. And they’re calling for rain the next couple of days, although it is supposed to be warmer. This may be where our four batteries will get tested at their low!
