Finally! A Post…and an Announcement!

It has become increasingly obvious to me, and probably more so to you, that I am not blogging often enough to make it worthwhile for anyone to follow these posts  :(  I am finding it difficult to sit down and work on a blog post when I’m having too much fun :) That doesn’t happen all the time, but it does happen frequently  :) Yay!  :)

I have found it easier to just post to Facebook when something interesting/fun is going on. For that reason, I have added a “follow me” button on the upper left column of this blog. If you click on that, you will get my Facebook posts in your news feed. We will not be “friends” but anything I post regarding our travels etc. will hit your news feed. If we are already friends, you need do nothing  :)

I will still try to blog occasionally, but Facebook will become my primary means of communicating our travels. I hope you will understand and join me in our journey by clicking the “follow me” button.

Now, on to the blog post!

The month of April was filled with all things “grandchild”!


We enjoyed our time with the kids. When they were in school or otherwise occupied, we found other things to occupy our time.

We hit a couple wineries/craft distilleries but, the big thing was the Country Music Hall of Fame. Amazing place and I’m not even a Country Music fan :)




We spent several hours there one rainy afternoon before finding our way to Tootsies World Famous Orchid Lounge for an early dinner and a beer.


Tootsies is a Nashville icon having hosted famous Nashville artists such as Faron Young, Patsy Cline, Kris Kristofferson, and Loretta Lynn as well as many, many others.

From the Nashville area, we headed to Defeated Creek COE in Carthage TN. This is one park we will definitely try to return to! Beautiful!

While there, we met new friends Lisa and Tony with sons Tez and Rick.


We had a great time visiting. Tez was home temporarily, recuperating from minor surgery. He is a US Marine and we both thank him very much for his service to our country! Lisa and I had been long time Facebook friends that just met for the first time.

When we left Carthage we headed for the NC mountains. We were headed to the first ever RV-Dreams Reunion Rally in Marion, NC.

RV Dreams Reunion 2015

What a wonderful time we had!

When the rally was over, we headed to Virginia Beach, VA.


It was a perfect spot for some down time and recuperation after the Rally.


We got a bit more recuperation time than we wanted as it rained from the first night we were there throughout our entire stay :)

Oh well. C’est la vie! It’s all an adventure!

We are moving on to Delaware in a couple days. Another new area for us. Please join us by clicking the “follow” button on the left side of this blog.
