Bear Cave Resort

5/29/13 Wednesday at Buchanan, MI (Bear Cave Resort-TT/Mid Atlantic)

Got up at 9 am Eastern time. Sunny, so maybe we’ll get a respite from the rain. Very slow getting going, we eventually (after a long discussion with fellow Rver) got to the office and met the manager. This is also the store and entrance to Bear Cave. She had answers to all our questions. Tornado room is the cave! No WiFi – need to use the Public Library’s or McDonald’s in Buchanan. They can’t get any company to put it in (must be underground) and guarantee constant access. Cell phone (Verizon) reception is a bit better in this drain field area in the campground – near us. She has a list of things to do in the area. We are in a deep gully, with lots of trees, thus the reception problems. No water in the pool and hot tub because the concrete is cracked. They have the job scheduled, but the constant rain keeps delaying it. They just got the grass mowed today. That was a huge improvement in the looks of the place. They only have 2 employees at this point (manager and assistant manager), but 2 more are coming soon. We have full hook ups (including 50 amp electricity), nice space between sites, good TV reception, so things are looking good.

After lunch I took a nap while John read (so warm…perfect siesta time). Then on to the Library to post the blog and sundry computer jobs, then back to the RV for more relaxing (John with TV, I reading).

Sunny afternoon: Yeah!

After supper, we walked around the campground, enjoying the St. Joe River and boardwalk along it. Back at Miss Zanzibar, we settled in to watch the piles of taped shows on our new TV. None of the predicted storms happened today.


About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
