We rolled into Mobile, Alabama earlier this evening. We made two stops on the way here to use the restroom (which means we found a safe place to pull over and walked back to our fifth wheel to use our own bathroom - so much better than public restrooms)!
Once we got everything setup at our new RV park, we attempted to go to the grocery store. We didn't recognize any of the grocer names on the GPS so we chose one and headed off. When we arrived at the location, it was more of a grimy drive-through liquor/snack store than a place to take the family. We didn't even go in.
Not sure what to do, we ended up driving back to our RV without groceries.
A little later, I asked a neighbor where we should go. It was getting late so this time I went by myself. I found the grocery store, bought everything on our list, and started up the truck to get home.
As I was driving through the parking lot, I saw a laundrymat. There was a group of elementary age boys hanging out just outside the entrance. I stopped the truck and grabbed a bag of a dozen oranges to hand out. At first, only one boy wanted an orange. Then, a couple of other boys wanted one. Before I left, I asked one of the kids if he wanted all of the rest. He smiled and took them right away.
As I was driving away, I could see him handing out the remaining oranges.
