We started our trip rolling south through the colorful hills of Ohio. Corn fields scattered amongst the woods. The color in Ohio is starting to show reds, yellows and oranges. As we drove south the colors lessened and the land scape was speckled with some yellow and dark green. Once we got into West Virginia the green was deeper and more lush, less brown and yellow, and we kept heading south. Of course we stopped at Tamarack in Beckley WV stretched our legs and had a delicious gourmet meal at their little cafeteria. Steve got a book about the history of Appalachian Music. I am waiting although they had a lot of very interesting ghostly tales that were intriguing but I shied away from them. Staying in very dark places with a crescent moon shining overhead in a RV made me get the heebie jeebies so I thought-“No not reading those if I want to sleep ha!” Saturday night brought us to a Walmart in Wythville, Virginia where we stayed, it was a bit noisy for my taste and my sleep lacked. Sunday we continued south through Virginia and into North Carolina-still a lot of steep grades-but things leveled out. If I squint my eyes and look through the trees I can see some rolling hills and some farm fields-although not clearly enough to see what is growing. The end of the day brought us to The New Green Acres Campground-woo hoo! We had electric, a hot shower and a slow steady rain. We had lights, air conditioning and didn’t have to tinker with the generator-which does work but needs a little love to run smooth. After a peaceful night’s sleep we went into the town by the campground-Walterboro, South Carolina. We enjoyed darting in and out of shops through the rain-starting with Washington Street Antiques. We also visited the South Carolina Artisans Center. Everything was going well until an unexpected insect bite-yuch and ouch! Back to the RV to get Benadryl and jump on the road again. We arrived at Tybee Island around 3 O’clock and that gives you some insight into next weeks adventures.

West Virginia is gorgeous this time of year! We own a farm in southern West Virginia(ranger, wv in Lincoln county). This is my favorite time of year to travel!

I could say photographer, but I am a collector of minutes in time, visual memories.
