Moving on – to Wildwood, FL

2/12/15 Thursday in Wildwood, FL (Three Flags RV Resort-TT/MA)

I love travel days like this, when you have only 50 miles to go. We leisurely spent 3 hours getting ready, even eating our normal breakfast. Turning on to the highway by 9:45 am. It was a wonderfully smooth ride. John was even careful with the speed bumps, traffic light stops and corners. Since the parks have been really full we decided to check in, then John drove Miss Journey to the Pilot just a mile or so further north while I stayed at our site. I even thought to bring some reading material to enjoy in the car. Lo and behold I got talking with a sweet couple (Harlene and Bill). They had just sent a letter to cancel their Zone Membership in Thousand Trails and had questions. They want to head West next year. So I filled them in, and then some. Poor John called to let me know it would be a while: they only had 2 lanes open. I said I was fine, talking with new friends.

Since it was such a great experience (the ride, the visit), I had energy to tackle some more to do list items. I called LaMesa (Sanford) to order the Carbon Monoxide Alarm. The gal was very helpful, suggesting that I send a photo via my phone to her email and she’d check to see if it was in stock. It was! So she’s holding it for me. I’ve been calling LaMesa (Tuscon AZ) regarding the misnamed Title for Miss Journey. Always got an answering machine. This time John suggested I just call the general number (not direct to the lady that was helping us). Sure enough this other lady researched (the other gal had left work when the good title arrived and was out from work since then) and is overnighting it to us today. Next we got our grocery shopping done.

Our new friends (John met them when he got back from his fuel expedition) told us about a Bluegrass jam tonight at 6:30 pm. We had a great time enjoying all their music. By the way, Harlene plays the most amazing piano tunes and accompanied all the others’ songs. I’m so impressed.

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.
