Golf, Sun City and Greg and Marcia Join Us!

12/1/13 Sunday at Yemassee, SC (The Oaks at Point South-TT/MA-John and Trish at Hilton Head Island)

Slept in. Ah. Connect with Deb re our plans for today: head for their place in Sun City at 9 am.

John left with Dave for golf west of Hilton Head Island (much cheaper there) while Deb and I visited as we enjoyed our tea/hot water.

We explored Sun City, a huge association of 8,000 homeowners.  This is part of Deb’s garden.  She grows cool weather plants now, in winter.

Deb in the stain glass room.  She is a member of that club.  There are numerous clubs you can get involved in.

These were taken at Riverbend-a kind of sister city to Sun City where the houses are custom built and start at a million dollars.  Love that Heron shot.

Deb dropped me off at the condo around 4 pm. John got there about 5 pm. He’d had a good time playing golf, especially enjoying his driving shots flying straight. We enjoyed a leftover supper of spaghetti again, then watched another “free” movie: “Turbo”. Just about the time it ended, our friends appeared at the door! We shared hugs, helped them get their things up and settle in. They’d driven from Milwaukee, WI to here in 2 days. Unfortunately, they ran into a lot of congestion -we figure people returning from Thanksgiving celebrations. So we offered them some time in the Jacuzzi. Greg’s back was sore, so he took us up on the offer. John and I watched “The Mentalist” while he enjoyed his private hot tub. Marcia played on her computer. By midnight John and I made it to bed. Full day, I’d say. We’re ready for some quiet time.

A gift basket of Wisconsin goodies that they gave us:

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.
