Searching and Visiting Day

2/27/14 Thursday at Wildwood, FL (Alliance Coach)

My morning was spent catching up with computer reading. John visited a bit and worked on his computer. Lori said our gasket will be shipped today. She would text the tracking number when she got it, but when we asked her later in the afternoon she’d found out that they weren’t using a trucking company that had tracking numbers. The sender did send her the paperwork showing that it was on it’s way so we’re good. With that news we canceled most of our reservations at Three Flags.

Right after lunch John dashed out of our rig. I noticed a couple other people joining him in some sort of search so I came out to see what I was missing. A little dog had run under our RV so it must be lost. We searched under all the RVs nearby and still couldn’t find it. Then John spotted a large dog sitting in the shade of its RV, telling me the dog was that color. The lady next to me remembered that there was usually a small dog with it but it wasn’t there. As we walked in that direction lo and behold we saw that little dog under the big dog’s RV! Then the owner arrived. We let him know that his dog was loose. He said he loves to be under RVs. His wife called from their RV for him to bring the dog in. Wonder why they don’t keep it on a leash?

John and I got talking to our fellow searchers then saw that our friends Bill/Susan had arrived and were talking to Julian/Sharon. When there was a pause in our conversation we went to join our friends.

The rest of the afternoon we visited with them as Julian struggled with waiting forever for his coach to get picked up so they’d put the new toilet in.

We parted at supper time as Julian went into a small office to discuss issues over his bill when his repairs were finished. Quiet evening watching TV.  Below is us in our site.  Okay, it is a bit crowded but you can’t have everything.

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.
