Since I've been walking around the Fairgrounds for about a month now I've noticed that most of the people here seem to be here to self isolate just like me, so there's not many RVs that are coming and going most folks have been here since I got here.
And I've noticed that there's a different type of family here than I would normally see. It appears, and I have to use the term appears because there's hardly any interaction going on between any of us, a wave of the hand, and a friendly "good morning", is about the only communication happening in the campground so I'm having to guess at what kind of families are here, but it seems that I see more kids and extended families than I normally do.
And by extended families I mean I'm seeing a lot of what looks like, grandparents, parents, and grandkids all living in an RV together. Now I don't mean there's necessarily six or eight people living in the same RV, it might be mom and dad, grandma and one or two kids. Or what looks like grandma, grandpa, mom, and a kid or two. But it's a combination of family members that I seldom see, but seems to be fairly common at this place and at this time.
My guess is the families are sheltering in place together and dealing with a bad situation as best they can. But I can't imagine it's easy cooped up in an RV with a couple of 10-year-old kids that because of the heat can't go outside until the sun goes down.
I don't know who has it worse the young kids stuck inside of the trailer for hours on end with no friends to play with, or grandma and grandpa living their golden years dealing with bored, restless, kids that had rather be anywhere but here. I would love to hear their stories, but out of an abundance of caution and a concern for each other's safety, we all stay to ourselves.
The neighborhood kids don't get much time to play outside, its just too hot. So it's really great to hear them laughing and squealing as they run through the sprinklers. This whole ordeal must be so tough on the kids.
The last harvest.
Cactus flower.....Seems like there was a movie by that name starring Goldie Hawn.
