After five weeks exploring Virginia, it’s time to reluctantly move on. But there is no doubt in our minds that we’ll be back again and again.
This trip we confined our visit to the state’s Middle Peninsula, what locals call the Rivah Country, on the western side of Chesapeake Bay. There is so much to see and do here that we never came close to even scratching the surface, and that still leave the rest of this wonderful state we have not even ventured into yet! Yeah, we’ll be back.
Today we are headed south about 120 miles to North River Campground in Shawboro, North Carolina. We’ll stay there a couple of days while we visit Kitty Hawk and Nags Head, two places I’ve always wanted to see. I say a couple of days, but who knows? We don’t have any place to be and all the time in the world to get there, so we may stay a week or a month. Well, probably not a month, but we’ll leave when we feel like it. Or when they kick us out. Whichever happens first.
From there, we’ll be moving south along the coast all the way to Savannah, looking for new adventures and new places to see. We plan to stay pretty much along U.S. Highway 17. If anybody has suggestions on places to check out along the way, please leave a comment below or send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So how did we spend our last day in Virginia? Just like we did the last three days or so; I worked on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and Miss Terry worked on her loom. Even fulltime RVers need a few days off from playing tourist now and then or burnout sets in.
I owe my pal Greg White a belated happy birthday. Yesterday he turned 50 plus a whole bunch of extra years. I wont say how many of them, but if I had three hands and counted all the fingers, it still wouldn’t be enough. Happy birthday, buddy. We love you.
Congratulations to Paul Partridge, winner of our drawing for an audiobook of Gun Shy by Ben Rehder. We had 147 entries in last week’s contest. Stay tuned, another contest starts soon!
If you’re looking for something to read this week and have not read Big Lake, the first book in my Big Lake mystery series, have I got a deal for you! Starting today (Monday) through Friday it will be free on Amazon. If you don’t have a Kindle e-book reader, you can download the free Kindle app to your computer or smart phone and read it that way. This was my first fiction book and is the one that started my career as a novelist. It’s sold well over 170,000 copies so far and made the New York times bestseller list back in 2011. Get yourself a free copy, and please tell your friends to download one too.
