Hot, Humid Sunny Day-Good For Projects

3/4/15 Wednesday in Bainbridge, GA (Eastbank Campground-COE)

This morning we made a trek to Lowe’s. At the beginning of the drive we checked out a couple ways to exit the campground in preparation for our next trip to Alabama Friday. I’m glad, because one way was blocked by a gate! At Lowe’s we actually found the LED landscape lights we’d been trying to find for quite a while. Also plywood for 2 boxes John wants to make. We found out that they will cut the sheet into all the pieces you want (may charge 25 cents per cut after first 2). This is perfect when you don’t carry a good circular saw in your traveling home.

We got back in time for lunch then John got busy making his two 14”X6”X48” boxes to fit in our “basement”. They will hold our ladder and mat. This lets John use space that he couldn’t before and the box will also protect the ladder from the bolts and other things it was running into. Plus it will protect the carpet of our basement from the ladder scraping it. Meanwhile I got busy with my monthly chores: saving and organizing my photos from the last month and reviewing our last month’s bills. Incredibly we finished at exactly the same time! John invited me to see his handiwork. So nice. It will also save him from a lot of hassle trying to get that ladder into the basement old spot (moving things, avoiding the bolts).

It was pretty warm, so we took it easy in the rig. I got involved with a project listing all the West Coast (plus Arizona) TT campgrounds with notes on their good and bad qualities.

We enjoyed our campground walk after supper. According to a fellow camper, we just missed seeing an alligator, lounging in the water where my last sunset photo was taken yesterday.

No nice sunset tonight, but I’ll share a cloud photo from yesterday.



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.
