Ivoryton, Connecticut Day 2 (GA573)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.

I’m currently in my 24th year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

The motorhome is parked at Shady Acres RV Park in Yuma, Arizona. I may be here until March 4th.

 

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

This entry was posted August 8, 2013…

 

 

 

The motorhome is parked at my son’s home in Ivoryton, Connecticut. We are planning to depart for the west coast next Monday.

 

 

The famous Ivoryton Playhouse is only about one mile from my son’s home. During my previous visit here in June I wrote a rather complete Blog entry about the history of the Playhouse which you can read by clicking this link… http://wp.me/pDCku-8uG

 

 

Yesterday Mary and I went to the Ivoryton Playhouse for the premier performance of Dream Girls. If you are unfamiliar with the story plot, you can read it here by clicking this Wikipedia link… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dreamgirls

 

 

No photography is allowed of the set or during the program. They allowed me to take a few interior photos before the show began…

Speaking of Dream Girls…here’s mine…

Mary and I were both disappointed with the performance. While the story line is a good one, the performers semi-sing (screech) their lines rather than speaking them. In addition because we were so late in buying our tickets, we ended up in the last row of the balcony…which was okay…but even back there the orchestra volume was too loud making is difficult to hear the performers. Oh well, you buy your tickets and take your chances!

 

 

This was very different from the great performance of The Buddy Holly Story which we saw here in 2010 and you can read about by clicking this link… http://wp.me/pDCku-sJ

 

 

Enjoying a good play is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

I hope you enjoyed the photos.

Forecast for today is mostly sunny and 64 degrees.

 

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

My current travel rig is a 2006 Fleetwood 26′ Class A Motorhome and a towed 1986 Ford Bronco II, Eddie Bauer Model. This photo was taken in the desert at Slab City near Niland, California…

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!

A Change Of Plans…

Jim says:

Today we were supposed to be heading for Death Valley. After 10 days return for another two weeks in Las Vegas and then to Yuma, AZ.

When I arose this morning, I looked at the long-range weather forecast and saw that a week-long cold front is expected to drop temperatures in Death Valley during the day to the mid 50’s and at night to the mid-20’s. The Weather Wimp (that’s what Mary calls me) said…”Brrr, that’s to cold.” So, we discussed it briefly and a last-minute change of plans developed.

Picture

We’ve decided to reverse our plans and go to Yuma first (where it will be nice and warm 🙂 ) and return to Las Vegas on February 7th for which we already have a two-week reservation. After that, hopefully things will have warmed up in Death Valley so we can visit then.

That’s a real nice feature of the RVing life…the ability to make last-minute schedule changes in order to stay in a relatively nice climate.
