‘You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.’ – Mae West
[How this works is, each week, I will write to someone on my list, picked randomly and I will post it online on this blog – just in case the letter doesn’t reach its destination. The letter includes a card with a random quote, which I hope you will enjoy (at the top of this blog page).]
This last week has been relatively quiet. We were meant to leave on the previous weekend, but, once, again, we had engine problems. This time it was the water pump. As the mechanic had to come to us, he only came in his spare hours, which meant the replacement took 6 days.
Unlike the other 2 times we’ve had a breakdown, we went off touristing (my new verb!) – this time we took it easy and relaxed more around the campground we were staying in Virginia. To be honest, it was a really gorgeous spot and I got to have night after night of campfires. I love campfires,
especially with a nice glass of wine. It was chilly, but worth it.
Still, I managed to get some much-needed video editing done which will come out in December, plus make some good in roads for a promo video for ‘Miss Givings’.
I’ve really enjoyed my week of ‘rest’. We’ve had some great evenings talking and playing games – just like when I was a kid.
The more I see, the more I just wish I had more time to see. This city’s old quarter is gorgeous – beautiful old homes with huge verandas.
I would love to just sit and while away the day on one. So glad we made it here, as I don’t think I would have. Love the warmer temperatures even if we are, also, dealing with severe thunderstorms and tornado warnings – England just doesn’t know severe weather!
One more day here and then we hope for sunnier weather in Florida.
What sort of ‘bad weather’ experiences have you had on your travels? See ya soon!
