As a fulltime RVer, you will be spending a lot of holidays at RV campgrounds. While most of the holidays we have spent travelling have made us hanker for family gatherings and the traditional sights we are accustomed to, Independence Day is a little different. RV parks are perfect for Independence Day. They promote outdoor activities, swimming in the pool, celebrating America and barbecuing. I can’t think of a better way to spend the 4th of July.
Here are some shots from around our campground this morning…
I wish I could share with you the lovely picnic tables with red, white and blue tablecloths and decor. The coordinated plates and accessories the mothers here put out in love for their families and patriotism for their country.
But, their personal space is private, and we will leave it that way. We can view it as passerbys and you can imagine it in your mind.
Today, I am also pondering the many places we have visited that are connected to our Nation’s Independence. Wouldn’t these make a great trip this time of year?
The Freedom Trail in Boston (we have not done an RV trip there yet, but did visit before)
Mount Rushmore in South Dakota’s Black Hills
Scottsbluff Nebraska (great Oregon Trail stop)
The Alamo in Texas
Homestead National Monument in Beatrice, NE (remembering all the work people faced in order to live free and own land)
Tonight, we will be spending some time at the beach and watching the fireworks display over the water. I almost wrote that this will be our first time at the beach for 4th of July, but that is wrong! We were on the Pacific Ocean last year in Florence, Oregon for Independence Day. It was a beautiful, sunny day there with fireworks over the River that flows in to the Ocean. But, there we were wearing pants and heavy sweaters! This RV life surely leaves you with varied memories, each great in their uniqueness.
We hope you are enjoying celebrating our Nation’s Independence today with a sense of gratitude in your heart!
