Back to Blogging!

We will just pretend that nothing much has happened since our last post in May 2010 since we are so slack at blogging. We began using Facebook as a 'slice of life' notation rather than heavy-duty blogging. So hard to keep up with all the 'blogs' and 'social networks,' but we will try to do better.

The blog is linked to FB, but we have not figured out how to link (or if it's even possible) the blog to FB.

To make a long story short, we made it back to Camp Hatteras in the Outer Banks of North Carolina just before Memorial Day to work in Recreation for our second season. Although we were scheduled to work through Labor Day, Hurricane Earl (and the ensuing mandatory evacuation) shortened our stay by about five days... So, no real good-byes or closure to the season.

It was the busiest summer we've ever experienced, but also one of the most rewarding on several levels. We spent more beach time and less 'on the go' time and introduced a lot of kooky activities - some worked and some didn't. Water aerobics was not so popular last summer but was a HUGE hit this year; bucket ball worked last year but not this year; Splatterball was a huge hit this year, as was 'coconut bowling,' gummy 'dirt and worms,' and a rash of other ideas. Met a lot of new folks and reconnected with some old favorites. All in all, it was a fabulous summer!

The thing about having a house on wheels is that hurricane evacuation is possible. We are back in Statesboro, GA where the temps are in the mid to upper 90s and hot as dammit pretty much every day. Even so, Parkwood RV Park is our transitional home during travels, with friends in the park that we are happy to reconnect with, as well as family in the area (we are also happy to reconnect with). We hope to reconnect with a lot of our Camp Hatteras family while in Florida this winter.

We're in Parkwood for about a month and are scheduled to be back at Sun 'N Fun Resort in Sarasota, FL mid-October. We will try to be better at blogging, but we've broken that promise before...

Make the most of every day and safe travels...
