We’ve been on the road the past four days and without internet service much of the time, henceforth the abscence. I must get a Verizon Internet card for times like this. We departed Columbia, SC on a morning when frost danced upon the windows making the view appear as a Halloween postcard. From there we motored to a Walmart located in Wake Forest for a short day and a half visit with our daughter, Erin. She had to work during the day but we were able to have dinner with her on two evenings prior to leaving the sunny South. North toward New Jersey to visit our son,
Ryan, crossing the Delaware Memorial Bridge into a world that we have not known in months. That’s the world of cold weather and overcast skies. You don’t realize what you have until it’s gone. I take the sunshine and warmth for granted when I’m basking in its glory. A good audio book rendered an accompanying soul on this seemingly endless journey. Interstates are great for making time but other than trees and pastures, they don’t lend much to the imagination. However, it was well worth the travel time in visiting the children. Erin is dabbling in cake decorating and was preparing for a weekend at the beach with friends. Ryan and Carolyn showered us with talk and plans of the upcoming wedding. Jim and Pat Clear, our future in-laws hosted us for a Friday evening dinner. The were the quintessential hosts and the homemade Italian dinner was sublime. We enjoyed their company as we chatted late into the evening before having to return to our campground. Tomorrow I shall review the Timberlane Campground in Clarksboro, NJ but for now, unexpected friends have enjoined me here at Panera Bread and I shall close for today.
