Mistletoe State Park, Appling, GA

We are so lucky we get to go camping this 3rd weekend of March. We went about 2 hours away, NW of Augusta to Mistletoe State Park.

We arrived close to sunset and the pic below shows the view behind our camper. The next picture is our site, #41 which was a great site right on the water. This park is on Strom Thurmond lake. We stayed at a ACOE park a few years back on another spot on this very large lake, which was in Modoc, SC.  It is a great park if you can ever get to it.

Most sites are nice and wide and long and a lot of them are right on the water. Really beautiful!

Behind our camper was a nice lagoon, where you can fish and my dogs could play in the water.
There is lots of boating going on here with many boat ramps. There is a swim area and beach shack for the summertime. There are pavillons you can rent for gatherings. Just a real nice park.

We also took a two mile hike, right from the campground area itself, with our two dogs. There are several others trails also, one totaling about 3 1/2 miles and another one over 8 miles.

It was a great, albeit, short weekend, but we'll take what we can get...........

See ya'll down the road,

Continuing the front Porch - March 2013

After being in our home two years we are getting around to starting to build the front porch.

We actually did the brick work and steps and concrete columns in October. Jeff started a new job that month and it has really occupied his time so he is just now starting on the porch again.

Hopefully he can start to get the roof boards down soon.

We can't wait to have a great porch to sit on. (As you can see my mom is already out there,
supervising the work!)

See ya'll later,

Asheville, NC - Feb. 2013

I went up to Asheville to visit my friend Sherry and help her and her daughter and grand baby move west to Canton, NC.

It was a 4 bedroom, 2 story house that we moved ALL by ourselves.....I thought it would take 3 days  but it ended up taking us 5........WOW, we were really tired after that !

It was snowing and cold.........but we finally got it all done.

Some time for the grand baby (Willow) to have something to eat.

She IS adorable !!!  But outside it is, it is snowing........

Back at the hotel it is still snowing and cold..........

But we got the job done and I headed for home.........

See ya'll down the road .
