Rainy and GBS

Crooked River SP (site #54)
St Mary’s GA

It’s been a couple of messy, drizzly days here but I did at least ride my bike around a little bit on Wednesday and took a pic of our site.  I think it’s the best pull-thru here.  We got out on Thursday afternoon and went to the waterfront part of town with it’s quaint, restored houses and ate shrimp at Lang’s.  Not really worth the price but it was nice to get out.

Since we’ve been conservative with our water consumption, there’s plenty of space in the gray tank so I’m washing a load of clothes today since we’re leaving tomorrow.  It sure is convenient.  We plan to stop at a PPA CG along I95 in SC tomorrow night and then back to the house for a few days by Sunday.  We like it here and hope to return when the weather is nicer.

One reason that I started blogging was to get better at expressing myself.  I’m a quiet person in general and my thoughts don’t always translate into the proper words.  I don’t think that my self-expression has improved much, but I wanted to share a link to a site that I think is well written with more “inner thoughts” and thought provoking questions than anything I can come up with.  It’s not RV related but there is an emphasis on the great outdoors.  It is written by my nephew Philip and is about his life’s experiences.  It’s Green Beret Skills.  As you may have guessed, he was in the Army.  If you have time, please check out his posts from January 25,2012 thru February 6, 2012 to help put life in perspective.

Life is what you make of it…it’s how you handle adversity that makes you who you are.

SO sorry that you've had rain at crooked river. It's a great spot. Glad you like your site.

Let us all know what you think of the PPA you stay at. Especially for those of us who tend to go up and down the east coast.

I think you are short changing yourself. Your blogis interesting and informative and well written. And your blog comments too. Especially the one giving me the proper latin name for the Pink floater. Loved that! Love u2!!

I like that spacious "pull thru" campsite. It looks so peaceful and relaxing. We're wishing you safe travels back to NC.

We found St Marys to be a very nice place to visit. Hope the weather improves so you can enjoy it:)

What a witness your nephew is! Thanks for the link. He is an inspiration and a testament as to God's power and protection.

Keep up the writing. I enjoy all your blogging.

What a beautiful site you parked Tawanda in :) That looks like a great park.
I agree with Sherry. Your blog is well written and I think you express yourself just fine :) I've bookmarked your nephews site for future reading.

I just read your nephew's blog. I found it very inspiring...a courageous young man!! There is a wonderful book called, "Love, Medicine and Miracles" by Bernie Siegel. In the book he describes what he calls an "Exceptional" patient. Your nephew is one of them. He already knows he will be fine:o))

Thank you for sharing his blog with us and thank you for sharing your blog with us!!

Your nephew is an inspiration, wow, what a story! Thanks for sharing his blog.

We already had Crooked River on our "list" and definitely need to check it out. We both like reading your blog (and talking to you in person!). Have bookmarked the GBS site for future reading (and soon). I agree with your comment about can either sink or swim when life hands you an unexpected twist....both of us have always chosen to swim. :-)

Tawanda looks good there. I don't think there is anything with your blogs. Love keeping up with you. Thanks for sharing Phil's Green Beret Skills.
