Moving on – to Fair Play, SC

11/5/13 Tuesday at Fair Play, SC (Carolina Landing-TT)

Out of the campground by 8:45 am. Nice. Everything went smoothly, including the slides which we felt comfortable enough to leave until this morning. Most of our drive is on US 23. It’s a 4 lane road all through North Carolina and Georgia. We’re in the Appalachians the whole time so lots of climbing and braking and curving, but lovely scenery. There is a Smoky Mountain rest area before you get to Georgia that will hold 3 big rigs. There don’t seem to be any in Georgia on this road. To get to I-85 we turned onto US 123/SR17 also 4 lane, then the last 12 miles on SR 17, a mostly 2 lane drive.

We want to fill our propane tank so we can reset our “Sea Level” indicator. The Carolina Landing manager informed us that they don’t sell propane, to try L & C which is right off I-85, at exit 4 where we turn off for the campground. Let’s just say we stopped at the Mobile gas station we saw, unhooked the car and proceeded to find out that the propane was not at the Mobile, nor the country store they pointed to. That store told us where to find L & C. When we drove the car there we saw that the entrance was really steep, so we decided to wait on that effort.

It was 2 pm before we’d finished setting up and getting our lunch. We tried a 30 amp site to save on the $3/day fee for a 50 amp site but it just was too off level, so we found a 50 amp site that was not only pretty level but also gives us Satellite view. So for $3/day we get 50 amps, level site and TV!

After a quiet time (John with METV, myself with a nap), we took a walk around the campground. We met Chad who then showed us his Navion IQ, “V” style class C rig. Really nice. Something to consider when we are ready for a smaller RV.

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.
