Trip 2 – Day 27
Monday, February 4, 2013
We are not a very lively bunch here. Life is a very slowed down version of what happens back at the farm. We eat, we walk, and maybe, some folks nap or hang out at the pool. It is nice to finally relax.
I have been reading the schedule of events here at FOY, and it looks like there is a group that taps. They are called the “FOY Dollies” (fyi – the other park we went to had a group called the “Desert Dollies.” I never found out what they did, but as I didn’t/don’t feel like a “dollie” it didn’t seem like anything that I really needed to know. I guess that “dollies” are an integral part of being at a snowbird park?) I digress……Here at FOY, they meet on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 3-4, and they clog, but it looks a lot like tap. I joined them today, stood in the back, and tried to follow along. They are a friendly group, and welcomed me in. It has been a while since I have done any tapping, so it was a brain/foot exercise. It is unfortunate that the two entities are located so far apart. The transmission of data between them seems to be a little slow…….much like the Internet connection in the park. I will join the Dollies again later in the week, and again be amazed that everything is, once again, brand new to me. No matter. Folks here are very understanding.
After dinner, I joined Craig for a soak in the hot tub and a standing around visiting in the pool. I’ll explain: the pools here, at their deepest, are 4-½ feet deep. There is no swimming. People just stand around and chat. In the hot tubs, they sit and chat. There is a lot of visiting that goes on here. I did go in the “lobster pot.” It is the spa that is fed by a mineral spring and is the hottest. It is considered to have healing properties – I do feel MUCH younger now, and am SURE that I probably look younger too, although no one has mentioned this. Maybe I need more than one soak for it to take affect.
