..and all is well...
I really do need to catch up on my blog and posting eh? My days seem to get filled with so many different things and then the day is over and I feel like I have done nothing.
So quick up date...I have moved now from James Island County Park - to a lovely quaint and totally secluded location with some really great people as hosts. The property is amazing from what I have seen thus far. But the weather has not cooperated and has had me in doors with rain today and looks like tomorrow is not much better and Monday they are calling for cold weather with snow flurries - tee hee...I will feel right at home with the snow flurries.
Taz is doing great and we have started walking slowly on her lead to force her to use her leg. Haily is having a ball at chasing the cats which there are several and has made friends with the resident "little dog" as I call her - a sweet little hound dog called Stella.
My friend Terri traveled with me to introduce me to her friends whom I am staying with and on Thursday we had a great camp fire and drank far too much corona and black current merlot. I think if I can remember right we even sampled some of the Chocolate Raspberry Port. It was a lovely warm night and perfect for a campfire - actually this was more like a bon fire and I did not think to take a single picture - I thought it might be better to have my camera safely in the trailer
or it may have become a ground ornament. It was nice to finally let my hair down and not worry over my baby.
I have a bit of a leak that I have to take care of - I think it is coming from the antenna so I will get up on the roof to take care of that tomorrow if it stops raining for a bit. I also had a bad propane bottle where the valve just started to leak - so had to change that out yesterday. Other than that my trip thus far (save the crisis with Taz) has been uneventful. My friend Terri took me out on the town for a tour of Charleston - but I will travel down periodically to tour the area now that I can leave Taz for longer periods.
I will try to post a few pics - have not taken a super amount of pics lately - just been really busy packing up camp and moving and taking care of Taz and keeping the trailer tidy with two great big dogs in here. They are as good as gold and I have completely trained them now to stay off MY BED!!!! I refuse to share tee hee.
Anyway I need to back up a bit with my update and tell you all about Paula and I's visit back in Williamsburg and post some pics as well. Unfortunately it ended with the crisis with Taz - which sort of put our great visit with each other on the back burner. So hopefully I will get to that over the next couple of days.
But lets not wait too long - so here are a few of us having a good time.
We hit the museum - and the first US Insane Asylum of course why not
Now I would have handed over my camera to Paula but then why would you hand over your camera to a "lunatic" wannabee tee hee Paula had me in stitches. And if anyone wants to learn the history of the Williamsburg area and well Virginia - the Paula is your Gal - she is a wealth of knowledge and had me totally impressed with her constant history lessons - it was a very interesting and fun visit!!!
We decided to take the big tour of the full museum and spent several hours going through all the amazing artifacts - and there was no need for us to take the regular tour cause our Silver Sister Paula probably knows more than the tour guide - which we promptly called "Carlton" cause he seemed to ride the elevator all the time.
Taking a little rest in the quilt section..
Paula also took me on several "driving tours" of James Town and York Town - I think I have those names right - it has been a few weeks now that actually seems like months ago. Paula I still have not had time to sit and watch the history DVD I bought but hopefully now I am settled for a while I might be able to.
Parked illegally while I ran to take some pic of the Armory, or Battery or something like that anyway...will post a few of those later....
We also had a great picnic style lunch at the camp ground, a couple of amazing breakfasts and did the really bad dinner thing at one of the restaurants - okay so we decided just to have desert!! - We then went out for some "pulled pork" - sorry Paula you will have to fill in the name for that one.
All in all it was a short visit but a great weekend! and I hope to travel back up Paula's way on the way home and hit Virginia Beach.
I have yet another 6 weeks or so to hang out in South Carolina - their spring is just starting - soon there will be so many spring flowers in bloom I will be in my element.
Where I am staying now is an absolute bird haven and cannot wait to get out with a nice dry day to take some photos of the different wildlife around here. And I have yet to get my Kayak in the water which I am hoping to do this coming week if it is not to to cold.
The owner of the property which I met tonight is coming to take me on a golf cart tour tomorrow - if the weather holds out...
Having a great time and meeting some really nice "Southern" folk
