all the while listening to an enthralling women’s soccer game from Germany it was between Brazil and USA and the commentator at the end said it was the best game he had ever seen men or women and I tend to agree it sounded so exciting and had everything from goals in the first and last minute, red cards, penalties re-taken and extra time and then a shoot out!!!


with the USA coming out as victors…it really was a great way to pass a couple of hours!!!

Around 4pm I had lost another hour now on eastern time zone I looked for a place to stop for a while and pretty soon found this great park on the shores of Lake Erie..

Just curious... Do you normally ask if it is OK to park overnight in Walmart and if so, have you ever been refused? We actually found many of them that gave an initial "No" from the Customer Service desk but changed to a "Yes" from a "manager" after we reminded them of Walmart's official policy of allowing RVers.
