3/11/15 Wednesday in Robertsdale, AL (Wilderness RV-RPI ($13/night))

We had such fun at the potluck last night we joined in their donuts (actually a variety of pastries) and coffee share time this morning. A peek at this campground, on our way back to our coach (Mallard ducks):


Fun visiting. Jack/Jackie didn’t make it – they forgot all about it. I had my alarm remind us, then we took a walk to the garbage and I’d forgotten by then myself! But John didn’t. 🙂

I got my blog posts completed by lunch time. Jackie opened her window across from our dining window, so we communicated a bit. She suggested we take a walk when I’d finished my “travel prep” chores. We had fun just talking about RV issues mostly as we walked around and around. Eventually we stopped and kept on visiting (including Jack) in their coach. I let John know so he joined us then.

Next up: supper at Lambert’s in Foley,AL.  Lambert’s ( 1 lamberts 2 lamberts 3 lamberts 4

Great, fun place. Wonderful food, service and atmosphere. They throw your rolls to you and many servers are wandering around offering you “pass thru” food. That is, someone will stop by your table (pass through) asking if you’d like some fried okra, rolls-these they’d put on your paper towel (napkin). Once you’re served your entree they’d offer: tomato macaroni (sweet), blackeyed peas, fried potatoes and onion, cabbage, apple butter and molasses. The apple butter was very good and very sweet. The molasses looked a lot like a gorgeous amber honey. These were unlimited! Then you could put your leftovers in a box to take home. Thus we have our dinner for travel day tomorrow.

Thank heavens we met Jack/Jackie. They’re really great folks and showed us some wonderful parts of Alabama and the South. We had a heartfelt goodby at our rigs when we got back home, hoping to meet up again soon. They’re headed West as well, but are on a slower schedule.


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.
