May 30, 2010 - Return to the golf course

Fooled you didn't I? You probably do not recall, the 5th wheel sits on a property the Howell family refers to as "the golf course". Not only is the view pleasing to the eye but accommodating. Corky's Dad arranged hook-ups prior to last years summer arrival. Speaking of summer...our minds have certainly gone on day pass status as the hot and humid weather are here. At 0900 it is 77.3 degrees with 72% humidity! I just love it-NOT! If there were no family and friends located here, I would not be on the east coast. The concentration of...

With that said, life goes on looking out for the folks, attending to our duplex(sewer clog), and re-acclimating to stress:) Cork's Great Auntie Ada is a spry, well spoken, sharp as a tack +97 year old.

Nov 1, 2008 - Jamestown Settlement/Ferry ride

We wrapped up Colonial Williamsburg today by visiting Jamestown Settlement. This was the first English colony established on mainland North America. We boarded replicas of the Susan Constant, Godspeed, and Discovery, the three merchant ships that first landed here about 400 years ago. We just couldn't imagine boarding the tiny ships and crossing the ocean over a four month period...crowded on there with about 40 other people. Not me... The highlight of the day was taking the ferry from Jamestown across the James River to the Town of Surry....
