Moving on – to Unadilla, GA

3/13/14  Thursday at Unadilla,GA (Southern Trails Resort-ROD)

Last night was a bummer: high winds for most of the night, so we didn’t sleep well. Just what the doctor ordered before a travel day. Cold, windy, sunny day. Because we were on a long pull thru site John could hook up our tow car right there. So even though we got up after 7:30 am we were on I-75 by 9:20 am. It took 10 minutes to get through 113th Blvd but John did an excellent job of staying slow and guiding the tires. Whew! No adventures this trip, just a smooth ride on I-75. With a couple rest stops and a fuel stop in Georgia (much cheaper here), we arrived at 12:30 pm.

Even as we were just driving in Bill was there to greet us. Since we joined ROD through this park, it’s our home park so we get member sites. Also we can only stay here for free for 7 days, then we pay $10 a day. Fair enough because our yearly member dues here is $99. We do have to have to pay $2/night for our 50 amp service. The sites are tight but at least we have FHU (full hook ups) and a 4th “point” – satellite reception. Since we’ll be visiting friends (so many gathered here for the FMCA rally in Perry, GA) and attending the rally we don’t mind the tight spot.

Soon as we had lunch we were visiting for the rest of the day. Bill/Susan had invited us to dinner. That was a real treat-not having to cook dinner on a travel day. Then we all returned to visiting around their campfire with about 8 other friends.

As the evening was drawing to a close we spotted the almost full moon.


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.
