In the north west corner of Alabama sits a little town of around three thousand residents. The two largest employers are Sunshine Mills, a pet food manufacturer and Tiffin Motor Homes, the manufacturer of our motorhome.
Red Bay is the name of this town that got its name from the red clay soil that it stands on and Bay came from the Bay tree which grows in town.
We are in Red Bay for three reasons:
1. John and a boulder had a battle and the rock won, damaging John's psyche and the motorhome.
2. We have a few repairs to challenge the service people's talents.
3. There are a couple of upgrades that we would like to make in our full time home on wheels.
Hopefully, the repairs and upgrades will not take long as there are many empty sites in the Allegro Campground.
We needed a few groceries, so we went into town. Our first stop was the Dollar Food Store. We did find a couple of good deals, but there were also prices higher than one would imagine.
Next stop, Piggly Wiggly. Piggly Wiggly is not your neighborhood Kroger! They had very limited brands and selections. Lesson learned....shop at a larger store before arriving in Red Bay.
What do we like about Red Bay? After being here for twenty four hours, we have had more people smile and greet us than we can count. Everyone here is extremely kind and courteous. I believe that is called southern hospitality.
Our quick escape from Indiana left us with a few unaccomplished errands. Tomorrow, we are going to venture further than Red Bay. We need to find a store similar to Pet Smart to buy the special dog food that we purchase for Oliver and Olivia.
A special thanks goes out to those who use our Amazon.com link to do your shopping. Yesterday's reported purchases are:
Holmes Personal Size Box Fan
NOOK 7" 8GB WiFi Tablet
Thanks for visiting with us. I hope that all of you are warm and comfy tonight.
May God bless you today and always.
