We determined that this year we’d try and integrate ourselves more into the day by day activities at the RV park. We haven’t really tried hard to get involved in anything yet, but we’re finding our calendar filling up more and more each day.
Just in the few days we’ve been venturing out we’ve set up massage appointments, listened to live music, attended a line-dancing lesson (no, Rod didn’t go), made arrangements to play softball, inquired about the hiking club (they’re a little too adventurous for us at this time, as I don’t think we’re up to a 12 mile hike just yet), bought gear to play pickleball (a sort of lighter version of tennis using a whiffle ball and a large table tennis paddle), bought tickets for a concert and made arrangements to see the Canucks play the Coyotes in late February. And on top of all this we have had numerous chats with our neighbours and other people from BC/Canada that we scout out during our walks.
If you wanted to, I think you might never have to leave the park other than having to go to the grocery store, and from the looks of it that’s exactly how some people live down here. We’re staying in this area because there is so much to do in the vicinity, so we won’t be getting ourselves totally submerged in the park activities, but it’s interesting to see how busy we could be here. There is a real friendly atmosphere here, and it’s making it easy to join in with everyone else.
