Saying Goodbye

Millwood Landing is one of our ROD (Resorts of Distinction) parks. We stayed here for the first time last spring and it has become one of our favorites. We hated to say goodbye but we are just not far enough south yet.

We took advantage of the nice weather earlier in the week before the cooler temps and rain set in. They have a very nice and well maintained 18 hole golf course and these photos show some of the beautiful flowers that we enjoyed along the course. Come to think of it . . . the flowers were the highlight of our game.

 

We’re not sure of any of the names of the above flowers just as I’m not sure of any of the names of some of the shots we had on the golf course. Maybe someone out there can help us out. With the names of the flowers that is. Not our golf game. We already know the terms: hook, slice, shank, etc. We are also very familiar with all the four letter words that follow those shots.

 

And of course . . . FOOD

There are tons of planned activities in the all year round. Even though there were not a lot of RVers in the park it certainly didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the park’s crew.

Each Wednesday is (Free) Hamburger night which happened to be the day we had worked up a ferocious appetite on the golf course.

 

 

But then it’s always appreciated when anyone else prepares and serves us a meal. Free.

This gave us another chance to meet and chat with some of the other travelers in the park.

Also on the agenda was an early Thanksgiving Pot Luck Dinner and anyone that knows us is well aware that we never say ‘no’ to a (Free) Turkey Dinner.

Everyone’s specialties including dressing, mashed potatoes & gravy, baked beans, jalapeno corn casserole, many salads and veggies . . .

 

The park generously provided the turkey, ham, drinks and a warm, very pleasant atmosphere with yet another great opportunity to swap stories with other friendly RV’ers.

However, the Pièce de résistance had to be this beautiful Bacon wrapped Turkey with Thyme. Chef Brad did an outstanding job with this wonderfully slow smoked turkey. Outstanding! So moist, tender and flavorful!

This was a great way for us to end our week making new friends and creating more wonderful memories.

Chef Brad was recently promoted to Millwood Resort’s Manager and deserves a lot of credit. As well as all of the very friendly and hard working staff. JOB WELL DONE!!

This is certainly not a park review but we would highly recommend this resort to any membership RV’ers out there.

Did I mention FREE?

We have always enjoyed Millwood Landing, free camping is good, free burgers, free Turkey Dinner. That is one of my favourite 4 letter words.
Travel safe!
