5/12/14 Monday in Port Clinton, OH (Erie Islands-ROD)

They’ve been prediction thunderstorms the rest of this week so we’ve been in a quandary as to when to leave. Because we have reservations, we need to let the next campground know the day before. First it seemed Monday looked good. Yesterday, Wednesday looked good so we decided not to drive Monday. Sure enough we had heavy rain last night and thunderstorms around 11:00 am. But now the predictions for Wednesday are not so good. Sheesh. I’m on tenderhooks. Naturally we spent our morning with TV, lap tops and books. Still not well from our colds so we’re enjoying all this resting. Although John’s back hurt yesterday, probably from so much sitting.

I cleaned house after lunch, then read while John watched his old TV shows. By late afternoon the weather was predicted to be partly cloudy Tuesday morning so at this point we plan to leave then.

I keep forgetting to mention, we were here September 3rd last year, so you can check out what we explored while here there, using the Archive option in this blog.

We ended our day with the delightful “Dancing With The Stars”. So sad that Charlie had to leave. They’re all so good this year.

Note: Showers bring flowers

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.
