We all know the poem, “Rain, rain go away come again another day“.
If you live in western Washington and hit the campgrounds with your RV on this past Memorial Day weekend or the ten days or so that followed, you know what I am talking about. On Memorial Day weekend we went to family camp with the congregation from our church and afterwards some of us spent a few more days camping at Riffe Lake. It rained more often than not at both locations. Thankfully, I packed a large tarp, support poles and rope to erect a large cover over the campfire ring. For many RVers the rain may have been a real bummer, but it really turned out to be a blessing in disguise as we spent considerable time huddled under the tarp enjoying the fire, games, hot dogs, s’mores, each others company and getting to know one another a little more. Had the rain not been falling I would have been out of camp adventuring, doing superficial things like, boating, fishing, metal detecting, hiking, etc. The Man upstairs knows what we really need even when we want something else. He was even gracious enough to send us a rainbow to remind us of His promise never to flood the earth again. Good thing too, with all the rain I was trying to figure out how I was going to install pontoons under the RV! Rain, food, fellowship and fun it’s all part of the RVing adventure!
