Stationary for awhile

Follansbee, West Virginia
Meadowpark RV Park

Where have the days gone?  I'm trying to think back from when I last blogged.  

Thursday we had a wonderful visit from our daughter Shay, and Doug.  Usually when we are here we are bombarded with everyone at once and don't get a chance to talk one on one.  It was so nice to be able to enjoy the two of the them.  We haven't stayed up that late in a long time.  We gabbed so much I forgot to get a photo.

There is one thing I crave when we come back to this area-- it is fish from Coleman's Market.  Bill took me to Wheeling Friday for lunch.  The Coleman Fish Market is located in the Centre Market which is in the historic district of Wheeling. 
I don't know how long the Coleman Fish Market has been around, but it's a long time.  

They haven't changed a thing.  You walk into a line and tell them what you want, the line moves along and by the time you get through it, your order is ready.  The fish sandwich is lightly breaded whitefish on two slices of white bread. If you want tarter sauce it will cost you a dime extra. They wrap it in paper, and put it in a paper bag.  The building appears to be an old trolley station.  There are tables and chairs and along the partition are rags and spray cleaner for customers to clean their table.  It's nothing fancy, but always packed.

I looked on Roadside America and they don't have anything listed for this area.  One of the interesting facts about Wellsburg is that Patrick Gass who was the last survivor of the Lewis and Clark Expedition is buried here.

 Normally, you'd drive straight down route 2 which follows the Ohio River.  We took the long way with a ride through Brooke Hills which now has sewer hook ups but the sites go over a hill.  It's much steeper sites than where we are.  

We also drove through West Liberty and Bill told some more stories of his adventures there.  Olgebay Park was really pretty with all the flowers in bloom. 

What do you think Bill did for relaxation?  Why of course, he cleaned and waxed the truck.  

Hopefully, he got the last of the tumbleweed out from under the truck.

I took a picture of the main road we came up.  

This picture was taken when we went back down the road to the store.  Notice the telephone poles are at the curb.  When we pulled the trailer up this hill there were cars parked along here.  

This park advertised level lots.  
We were surprised to find with 4 plastic blocks how far the front jacks would extend.  I've never seen the front of the trailer high enough for Bill to walk under.  

Today we spent the day with Balakos family for a barbecue.  
I don't want to brag, but aren't these the cutest kids around?  

Turtle Safely.....


  1. Does Coleman's carry wild Pacific salmon?

    1. I think it's only whitefish but worth trying if you are in the area.

  2. Finally in a park with wifi. I only have one gig left to last for the next week so I really have to watch what I'm doing. Giving me a chance to catch up. Brag all you want to, they are awfully cute. I don't think that's my idea of level. Glad you are having a good time. We left Vegas this morning and are in Alamo. Not much happening here. Used my Pyrex last night. Sure do love it.

  3. We have been to parks that advertise level sites also. Their definition of level is way different than ours.

    You can just brag away! Those are two cuties for sure.

    1. Let us know if you get down this way while we are here.
