Myrtle Beach, Ocean Lakes Campground, March 2011

Our campsite is just about 35 feet from the beach and we have no-one parked in front of us this year which is very nice indeed. The dogs are allowed on the beach and absolutely love it there. Listening to the waves crash against the shore is a favourite pastime for everyone and especially with the windows open at night!
Many friends returned from last year and we have been enjoying beautiful weather since I got back to the Airstream (Airebella) from Ottawa.
Next week Lisa and Derek have rented a condo on the beach in Myrtle Beach about 5 miles from here. It will be wonderful to see everyone here in the beach setting.

Today folks were not only sitting by the shore they were wading and is still a little too cold for me...

Ottawa for Five Weeks!!!

This was the longest visit home to Ottawa that I have taken, since we started travelling for the winter. It was wonderful to spend time with family and friends but at about the midpoint of the trip I realized that "home" is where Richard, Rudy and Reggie are and sometimes that is in Airebella...

Payton, Brooklyn and Madison spent some time with me painting, playing and baking and it was sure fun for me and I hope for them too!
The back yard at Fernwood was filled with snow and looked quite bleak.

Louise and Brooklyn enjoying a cuddle in Nana's kitchen. Lots of changes in the kitchen while was home. I ordered and received all new Stainless steel appliances, replaced the hardware on the cupboards, ordered a new countertop in granite with new sink and faucet. There was lots of planning and now are lots of jobs for Richard to do when he gets back to Ottawa! :-)
