~ aannnnddd we're back ~

We're back from vacation.  Me, Vince, Bobby, William and James went to our campsite in Virginia.  Loved being there - very relaxing just to sit on the porch of the trailer and crochet.  :)

Here's the front of our campsite:

here's the back of our trailer - the first bump-out is in the living room.  The second bump-out is in the bedroom.  :

And here's me crocheting away in my crochet corner:

This is the bath-house that is right across the little dirt road.  It's very nice - except for the spiders that hang out in the doorway at night.  I have to get Vince to spray bug killer around to keep them away.

My sister Teri's trailer - she's got a very nice lot.

My sister Julie's trailer - she has a very nice lot too.

My nephew Donnie (Teri's son) bought a new lot - also very nice.  He sold his first trailer to my brother-in-law Frankie's Dad.  :

This is the pool.  The guys went swimming every day. :

William and Vince went fishing - they didn't catch anything but look at that view:

Vince - the man with the nerves of steel - let James drive the golfcart.  He's so crazy.  :)

This is James during one of his behaving moments.  There wasn't too many of those.

And finally - these are my crochet projects that I worked on.  I crocheted a small granny purse to carry around just the basic stuff - ID, camera, phone, and such.  I crocheted another granny bottle cozy - some flower coasters - some circles for my 'round in circles' blanket that I've been working on for ages - some hexagons - and a scrappy hexagon.  That's my William holding it up for me.  Love it.  :)

  4. Hi Debi! Honestly, this looks like the perfect vacation to me! I had John look at the pictures as well, he's American and that's just HIS way of life - we both can't wait to visit his family again next year.

    And - you also had time for your wonderful crochet, looks like you had a great time :)

  5. Hi Debi! My gosh you have been busy! But your campsite looks wonderful! I'm glad to hear you had such a nice vacation.. Are you happy to be back home, or do you wish you were BACK there?! It's been a while since I've been camping, but I remember it was great.. and away from all the city noise we get here, it was definitely relaxing! I remember just looking at the moon over the lake, from the screened in porch at sat at, well into the wee hours of the morning, and it was beautiful.. I didn't WANT to go to bed. I just wanted to sit there, just looking at the moon ALL NIGHT! Wish I could have taken, or even painted a picture of it.. Well, I hope your enjoying your weekend! We've been getting lots of rain, but it's supposed to clear up soon! ~tina
