Cards With Friends

11/8/14 Saturday in Yemassee, SC (The Oaks at Point South-TT/MA)

A peak at Miss Zanzibar (and our friends’ Tiffin Phaeton to the left) in The Oaks at Point South.  (Note:  the space this side of our rig is now occupied by the man who cleaned our carpets in the Peace River campground!)  The oak tree you see is right next to Greg/Marcia’s rig.

We really slept in. Woke early, but it was so cold (high 30’s) we just turned over and stayed put. After our usual routine I got the blog posted and made my cranberry salad. I love it, but need fresh cranberries and this is the season for them. John got involved talking with Greg, then worked on making his clam chowder from scratch. Then we had a great lunch with my cranberry salad and his soup.

We invited Greg/Marcia to join us on a walk around the campground’s pond. It’s a lovely area.

After our walk we split for supper then got together in our coach for cards (“13”). John won the first, Marcia won the second game. Marcia noted how John seems to get most of the wild cards. I’ve always said he’s got a lucky angel on his side.


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.
