Where’s the Time Gone…

Kerr Scott Reservoir COE
Wilkesboro, NC

As you may have guessed, I took a long break from blogging.  I guess I’m falling into my rving routine.  I’m not a writer who has to share my thoughts or entertain folks.  I’m glad there are many bloggers out there who have that talent, but I’m retired and I don’t feel like working at a blog that much.

We’ve had a busy enough month though.  We went to Camp Freightliner in Gaffney, SC with Nancy and Bill and learned that we have complicated machines.  The four of us stayed at King’s Mountain State Park in SC for a week or so and enjoyed each others company.  It was a very wooded cg and the sites were not that level.  It’s not big rig friendly but we managed.

One of the things I liked there was the Living History Farm.  We all walked the grounds one day.  It is set up much the way it would have been in the 1800’s.  Too much manual labor for me but it was a very peaceful setting.  One of the days there, they had volunteers in period costume sharing information about how life was lived back then.

Also right beside the SC State Park is the King's Mountain National Military Park.  We all went over there and enjoyed the very nice visitor center/museum.  The Battle of King’s Mountain was fought in 1780 and was a pivotal point in the Revolutionary War.  We walked the nicely paved path around and up the mountain.  I can’t imagine a battle on the steep hillside of this hallowed ground.

After enjoying our time together,  we went to NC while Nancy and Bill made their way to another SC Park.  We have landed at Kerr Scott Reservoir near Wilkesboro.  It’s a COE project and there are 3 cg’s around the lake.  We stayed at Bandit’s Roost CG for a few days and we’re now at Warrior Creek CG which is a better fit for us.

I might get around to posting a few pictures of this place in a few days when it cools off a bit.  It’s been around 98* here and very humid.  Glad we have 50 amp!

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

Try to stay as cool as possible! Just a few more weeks until we see you! Can't wait. Happy trails :-)

Karen and Al said...

I was thinking about you both the other day. Glad to hear you're okay and enjoying your new motor home.

We always enjoy hearing from you whenever that may be. We don't post very frequently either.

I always feel sorry for people that dress in period costumes during the hot summer. At least it's only temporary for them and certainly can't imagine what it must have been like during that era to always have to dress that way.

Come on, tell the truth! You don't need 50 amps for the a/c, it's to power all Gin's video games... ;c)

Glad to hear from you guys! I'm sure that life sometimes is more exciting than blogging about it :) Keep cool, I'm sure this heat wave won't last all summer..

Glad everything is going well. Wished we could have joined you at Kings Mountain. That is so close to Lake Wylie. Kerr Reservoir sounds nice. We love COE parks. Hope to see you soon!
