V-1: Re-entry is Hard!

Back to the real world, after 10 glorious days away!

We went from sea level… And the beach…
To the mountains!

Listened to the surf…

And rode bikes in the mountains!

Saw my family…

Me with Bonnie, Patty, Mutty, Howard and Kenny, photo courtesy of cousin David!

Howard, Mutty and Jeff

Rick with Patty, Heather and Mark

Rick’s family…

Kathy and Skip with Rick and Me

Good friends...

Jane in Cleveland

Maryanne in Columbia, SC

And even found some vintage glasses and a Feemster slicer (I already have one; had to get another!) at a yard sale! Plus, a $2.00 shower curtain at a thrift shop!

six glasses, $1.25

Feemster's Famous for $1.00!

New Shower curtain: $2.00!

It was a glorious vacation! And we were indescribably happy!
I will be making several “V” posts – or vacation posts over the next few days. Since I missed you all so much while traveling, I thought the least I could do was offer a few souvenirs!

So comments on this post and any marked “V” (this is V-1) will be entered to win my souvenir packet! I’ll post a photo later, but it will include items from West Virginia, Banner Elk (North Carolina) and Myrtle Beach (South Carolina).

Next time: A visit to Cleveland -- then on the road!

Wow! It looks as if you had a great vacation. What could be better than family, friends, food, and bargains! Those glasses are so pretty.

It's good to have you back.

What a great vacation! The best of both worlds (beach and mountains = my favs). Can't get any better than that, plus the family friends and your awesome bargains! Who could beat that?

Glad you are back!

I love your photos (especially the beach ones) and can see why it's hard toget back to real life.

I googled "let Rick ride" 'cause he didn't answer the phone when I called-and I find pictures of you guys at a couple of my favorite places from our years of travel! Those would be Grandfather Mountain (The end of the extremely difficult "Bridge to Bridge" ride, and the Virginia Creeper trail-we've done that half a dozen times, but we always ride up.
I hope to see you and Rick prior to DALMAC-It looks like he'll be pirating it from what I read.
Have him call me.
