We're Here!

Huntington Beach State Park (site #21)
Murrell's Inlet, SC

Well we did all we could to get things moved for Gin's folks.  We took some things to their new house on Thanksgiving morning but then took the rest of the day off.  I went to Roanoke Rapids to spend T-Day with Mom and had a good visit with my family while Gin relaxed at the new place with hers.  We got up early Friday and packed up the rest of the stuff.  We then drove to our house in Clayton to clean out our pantry and wash clothes.  There was just a few things left to throw out.  On Saturday we went to a family reunion to eat too much food again.  I did take the time to walk around the old neighborhood to see some Christmas lights.  Today we hit the road for some much needed rest.  It feels good to be traveling again.

As we approached Murrell's Inlet, we stopped at the traffic light at Home Depot and looked for Nancy at the Garden Center.  She was looking for us too so we all waved.  After getting our campsite set up around 1:30, we drove out to get something to eat.  We stopped by Home Depot and got a great hug from Nancy.  We sure hope the "house selling luck" rubbed off on her.  Tomorrow is her day off so maybe Nancy and Bill will drop by for a relaxing visit.  We like this campsite so maybe I'll post some pictures in the next few days.  We enjoyed a stroll along the shore and watched some football.  The ocean is just over the wooded dunes so we'll hear the waves as we drift off to sleep, per chance to dream...

Thanks for dropping by and enjoy each day of your life's journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.

Glad to hear you made it to Huntington Beach. I'm only a LITTLE bit jealous of your spot by the ocean where you can hear the waves! But it's sure a well deserved rest. Keep me posted now about all the fun you'll have down there.

Sounds like all is going well, glad you got a chance to spend Thanksgiving with family.

Now you'll be getting some quality time with your other family, the RV-Dreams family. :c)

Enjoy!

Glad you're getting your well-deserved rest :) I know that soon, you will have many visitors. Wish we could be among them, but will be watching for all your news and keeping that wine bottle ready for the 6th! :)

Gosh, where do I start? I am so sorry to hear about Smudge. I know what she meant to you both. I lost my dad Nov 4. He lived in Florida and we drove from our volunteer job in Texas to be with him the last hours of his life. It was sudden but at 84 anything can happen. He had a wonderful life. I am glad your mom is doing well, Gin. I am THRILLED your house has sold. You will love being on the road and having the flexibility to be available if you are needed by family. Enjoy Huntington Beach. We thought it was beautiful when we saw it last year. Too bad we didn't get to stay there. Take care of yourselves.
