Travel

For those of you interested Only in TRAVEL, I (Jack) wrote the blog between March 2010 and October 2010 during our travels west. We saw the most beautiful places and had the best time in our big truck and little trailer. See Blog Archive below.

A Quiet Relaxing Day

Nancy and I got up this morning and we went for a short walk down one of the paths. It was nice. I did what I had to do and we went back to the trailer. Nancy got my big box fan out to point at me to keep the bugs off (didn't see any, but if it makes her feel better) and I lay down to take a nap while Nancy read her Kindle.


Then she decided to play around with the bird aps on her iPhone. (She first learned about them on Molly's Mom's phone). Well, she listened to one particular bird who kept singing the same tune and Nancy found the bird sound. She began to play it and all of a sudden a little bird landed right on Nancy's hand by the iPhone. It startled Nancy and in turn Nancy startled the bird. Her battery was running low so she went back to her book.
Nancy always puts a bed down for me, but I like to be on the grass and in the sand.
This is our site. A lot of RVs came in, today, but we didn't lose any of our privacy.
When Michael, Susan, and Laura arrived they sat around and gabbed for a little while and then decided since Laura had never been to a Waffle House, we would go there. It was a bit warm so Nancy left the air conditioning on in the truck while I waited.


Then, Susan went into Charleston to do some shopping. She stopped at the grocery store and bought the yogurt and blue berries that she likes for breakfast and some potato chips for Nancy.


Nancy and Susan decided they would grab something from Chic Filet for dinner and go to Folly Beach. They had heard that storms the past couple of years had eroded the public beach. They weren't prepared, however, for what they saw. NO beach. Lot's of surfers that Nancy thinks may have come because of the tropical disturbance off shore.
Nancy was disappointed in the pictures, but her little camera can only do so much.




Trying to survive were some little flowers that were growing on the last little bit of sand near the sidewalk.



Folly Beach is a hopping place. We rode along the road closest to the beach and saw some really pretty (and some really ugly) beach houses. The light was getting bad and there were too many cars to stop, but Nancy did get a couple of shots in.


Lots of night life going on in this beach town.
We headed home and Nancy snuck in a couple of shots of the marshes while on the fly.



Since blogger was being cooperative she posted a picture taken last night from California Dreaming. Bridges are built on curves around here.


Nancy struggled to remember how to get the converter box to work with the TV, but finally did. Now, though, we're all ready to go to sleep. We may go over to Sullivan's Island, tomorrow. Nancy said she thinks it's going to be warmer. The sun hits the door side of the trailer in the morning, but it's shady in the afternoon. Fortunately, there are some trees on our site so we can move around away from the sun. My eyes are closing so I'll say good night!

  2. Great pictures. But you really must learn to sleep on the mat because your human just knows it is more comfortable for you than the gravel and rocks. Now if only I could convince our girls.

    1. Pups are funny, aren't they, Sandie. You would think the stones would be uncomfortable. Glad to hear Jack isn't alone in his resistance to "comfort"! When you think of it, before dogs were domesticated no one put mats out for them! :)

    1. No kidding! Rich and I spent a lot of time here when my daughter was at MUSC. We'll be going back to Folly and a few of the surrounding islands. Susan has been into Charleston several times; I'm going to try to get in, tomorrow-at least to the battery. Thanks for reading.

    1. Hey, JoJO. Thanks for stopping by. This is a photographer's paradise. Charleston is a beautiful city, but I think the marshlands and estuaries in the low country are incredible. Thanks for reading, Jo.

  6. Hey, I think your little camera did a great job. I just finshed a book titled Folly Beach by Dorthea Benton Frank. She writes a lot of books (fiction) about that area. I remember going to Poes on Sullivans Island. Rustic, but they had good food and a lot of atmosphere. So it sounds like you're having fun with the bird app. It is cool. Chances are the bird people would be unhappy we 'torture and tease' the birds with it, ooops.

    1. I don't have the eye for photography that you do, but I really just like capturing the memories. I'll have to look the book up. You told me about Poe's before we came last time and we went over for lunch. Excellent. Susan thought the bird calling ap was hysterical. We were laughing because we were under a tree where they were gathering, and we were trying to guess who was going to "get it". She was amazed at how it attracted the birds. Tufted Titmouse was our most frequent visitor, today. We're going to Poe's tomorrow night for dinner. No blog today. A/C went out so waited for repairman to come--okay now--will write about it, tomorrow. Back was very bad so I couldn't get around very well--hopefully, it will improve, tomorrow. I'm going, regardless. Thanks for keeping tabs on us, T! Love and pats to Molly.
