It’s been a combination of things causing us to act like hermits the last few days. Old Sol has been blasting us. The temperatures in the Nashville area and in our current location of Cave City, Kentucky have been in the 90’s. Couple that with humidity also in the mid to high nineties and it doesn’t take long before we’re hustling back inside to Suite Pea’s air conditioning. We have no desire to do any sightseeing in this oppressive heat.
The other thing that’s keeping us inside is my vertigo. I’ve had three flare ups in as many days. It’s been some time since I’ve had any issues with it so I guess I can’t complain too much. I strongly suspect either my allergies or the humidity or both are contributing to my equilibrium being off. Another good reason for staying inside for now.
We did make a move though. A short 97 miles further north. We hated leaving our Cedar Creek COE camp with the pleasant view of the Cumberland River and the spaciousness of our site, but our two week allotment was up. We’re currently parked at Singing Hills RV Park and Campground. There’s nothing special about this park. It’s small, 44 sites, 7 of which are tent sites. It’s quiet. The owners are super friendly and helpful and we have a 50 amp full hookup site at a good rate. Singing Hills is an easy on, off from I-65 and a mere two miles from Mammoth Cave National Park. Convenience is the reason we’re here.
We have tour tickets purchased to visit the cave on Monday. Neither of us have ever seen it before so we are looking forward to our first viewing of it. We’re also looking forward to escaping the heat topside and enjoying the cooler temps underground.
I’m sure many of you are saying to yourselves, why don’t we just pack it up and head somewhere where the weather’s a little more to our liking? Living this nomadic lifestyle is conducive to doing just that but we have family commitments in Indiana coming up soon and it is in that direction we are heading. We’ve assured our youngest that we will be there to assist her in moving and we are looking forward to spending time with our grandchildren again. So I guess we’ll just accept the heat…..or we could pray for rain.
Here’s lookin’ at you kid……………
