Member Appreciation Day (TT)

7/19/14 Saturday in Rochester, MA (Gateway To Cape Cod-TT/OW)

A day to kick back and relax. Boston was great fun but really tiring, so it’s amazing how I can get excited to see new places, then get excited to just sit back and absorb.

Thousand Trails has a Member Appreciation Day. It used to be monthly, but maybe now it’s just yearly. This time we get free coffee and donuts in the morning. They really like Dunkin Donuts here on the East coast. This was John’s first try of one and he wasn’t impressed. In the afternoon we got free chocolate ice cream and cake. Outside of that we visited with a gentleman wanting to sell his 2002 Monaco and our friends Roy and Kathy who went to Boston with us. John then worked with his numbers and I with the blog.

At night we enjoyed “Django Unchained”, then the music down at the campground pavilion.

A bit of spring to keep your spirits up:



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.
