This Year, We are Thankful for Much, Including Cousins With Open Hearts and Homes.

As roving RVer's we frequently spend holidays in different states, cities and parks.  One year in Texas, one in Arizona, one in Florida, etc.

Sometimes we are with family, other times with dear friends, and other times, at a park where we know no one.  There was a year in Jasper County Missouri that we had our holiday meal in a local restaurant.  Many RV parks sponsor meals, usually a "carry in", with all contributing, the food is awesome and surely plentiful.

This year we were blessed to spend the day with Bowen cousins, Barb, Connie and Mary.

Man and I had met Connie a couple of years ago. Today, we had the pleasure of meeting her older sister, and her younger sister.

The food was great, the company was better.  Thank you for the invitation and the warm welcome into your lives.

  and Man

Edisto Island, South Carolina: Rolling, Rolling, Keep Them Wheels a Rolling - Winter 2015-2016

Our only full day in the Charleston South Carolina area was spent out at Edisto Island, and of course getting there and back.  An enjoyable leisurely drive.  Leisurely, enough, that I now realize that I took almost no photos.  Really.

We started the day off by having a pulled pork sandwich at Bessinger's in Charleston. We have rarely visited Charleston and not had at least one pulled pork sandwich from Bessingers.  It was a good way to start the day.

When we got out to the area of Edisto Beach we found a beach access parking area, walked out with Winston, took a few photos, and because it was windy and I needed to find the local rest room, we left.  So much for the beach combing.  

You will note Winston was sticking his tongue out at me.  He did not like the wind, nor the roar of the surf.

We stopped at a local museum, chatting with the docents, but, decided to not go in.  Man stopped at a shrimp shop and came out with about a pound, boiled and spiced.  He enjoyed, I plugged my nose.  LOL

Not much of a report, but, we really did enjoy the ride.  Back roads, covered by huge pin oaks and dripping spanish moss. A bit of beach, and some shrimp for Man.  Yep, a good day.
