Currently in Peculiar MO (Low 60 Times of Clouds and Sun High 81) 

We have a sentimental attachment to Peculiar Park Place RV Park. It was the first park we stayed at while fulltimers, 6 and 1/2 years ago if you can believe that. We were in this same exact spot back then, now with the Lifestyle, back then it was the Cameo.

A few years ago people thought Frosty and Gayle were crazy when they put in the park south of Peculiar Missouri, 27 miles from downtown Kansas City.

Many years and awards later the park is still going strong. In addition to adding more sites and working on adding more the park has added a 'gathering place' in case of bad weather. There are so many regulations regarding storm shelters, with our governments these days imagine that, that they cannot call it a storm shelter. Looks pretty sturdy to us with 8" concrete walls and roof. We are thankful that this 'gathering place' is there in case of a tornado, a very welcome upgrade to the park's facilities. We are even more thankful that we have not had to use it.

We are in a backin with trees behind us. Trees mean birds so we set out our feeders.

Our first visitor was an oriole

Who then moved to the window mounted feeder

Here is a rose-breasted grosbeak that visited

We have seen hummingbirds 

We've also seen red bellied woodpeckers, sparrows, cowbirds, maybe even a bunting but have not gotten a great photo of them yet. We and the cats, truth be told probably us more, really enjoy the birdwatching. 

We leave tomorrow to a park just north of the river, still in the Kansas City area.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo


  1. I love watching birds. Our feeders are a bit bare these days. We think it baby season.

  2. A great gathering place. Sometimes the government is so stupid. Glad you haven't had to use it.
