We actually had a good day today – the weather was great – the traffic wasn’t too bad and we got to Terrel Texas early – good thing too. They had booked our room on the second floor. Now that wouldn’t be so bad except there was no elevator and the steps were long and […]

Today we drove to Vicksburg, Mississippi. I’ve always wanted to go to Vicksburg, and now I really want to come back. We are staying right across the street from the Battlefield. I would love to go visit – but I had to make a choice – Battlefield or Confederacy Cemetery – which one should I […]

Today was a quiet day. We did a little bit of necessary shopping and drove by Shirley’s house – but they weren’t home. We decided to spend a little time at the beach – and it was simply beautiful. We went to lunch at Cracker Barrel and even splurged for dessert – LOL Tomorrow we […]

Sorry about not writing yesterday!! I was so exhaused I fell asleep shortly after getting back to the motel – I didn’t even chat with David. We spent most of Saturday with Tom and Marian – Marian really enjoyed going letterboxing with me. We found 2 and couldn’t get to one because of some kind […]

Today was not a great day for me. Woke up with a migraine – but Tom came over and picked up Mom and she spent the day with him and Marian. I took my meds and spent most of the day resting. I went over there about 5 this afternoon and spent the evening and […]

Today was very interesting. We went back to St Augustine one more time. Tried to find the letterbox at the City Gates, but it was missing. From the City gates we went to Old St Augustine Museum. It’s a square of old houses from the different periods of St Augustine History. There were some very […]

Today was a better day weatherwise – at least it was cooler. We did a tour of the oldest house in St Augustine and toured the fort. I have posted pictures of the fort at Castillo De San Marcos Nothing really exciting happened. Just wanted to let you know that all is well. Mom is […]

Today we went sightseeing in St Augustine. We started off with the Tram tour. Did the entire tour once to see what was there, then made our decisions as to what we wanted to see today. We did the Old Drug Store – with letterbox at the Love Tree LOL – you’ll have to see […]

Well we made it to St Augustine. The weather held with only a little bit of rain. We crossed into South Carolina and started seeing abandoned cars on the road, by the time we crossed the Florida state line we had seen over 3 dozen of them. I don’t think I’d ever seen that many […]

Well I’ve certainly had better days!! It started last night when neither Mom nor I could sleep. And of course the more you worry about not sleeping and the long drive tomorrow, the harder it is to get to sleep!! So we set out this morning with about 2 hours sleep each. I don’t normally […]
