Some pictures of turkeys seem appropriate since the long pause between posts...So busy with the new RV lifestyle that computers and email lost their edge. So I have sharpened some pencils and will have another go.

My focus will be on our National parks out west in order to plan our Great "out west" adventure coming 2015. Any suggestions will be great!
We visited some of our Grandkids in Manchester, Md and here they are getting in the pool for a splash. Pictured are Ava then Sebastion and Kiley
We picked up Peyton and Braydon for a day visit at Jellystone and had a great time. Next week we are getting 3 others and will spend the day at the park...........would love to get all ten at the same time!!!!
Pictured here is a famous bridge that was under seige during the battle of Antietam near Sharpsburg, Md.
400 Georgians from Gen. Lee's Northern Virginia army stood against thousands of Northern troops commanded by Burnside who assaulted the rebel position on the other side of the bridge...After four attempts, the union army withdrew and crossed further down the creek. The rock used to build the bridge was taken from the hill overlooking the creek. This left depressions in the hillside that created ready made rifle pits (foxholes) which the rebels fired from.
This battle claimed 22,000 lives in one day....everything here lined up to be a perfect storm.
We went to the Antietam National Battlefield today to get my Lifetime Senior pass for all National Parks...We love our country's parks and will use this pass to see as many as we can. There is a lot of civil war history here and the area is still a prime exploration showcase.
I spelled it right! This park is where we will work camp for the next few months and we are impressed with the focus on the customer and how well the park is cared for. We are receiving training and helping with spring clean-up with this weekend being the start of a busy season! Pictured to the right is a view approaching the water park.
You can see the budding trees and one of many walkways through this very large park. We are enjoying the experience of living here and the staff and other workampers are great. If you are interested in more info on the area and this park resort, go to: Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park
Maureen is in Heaven! After 8 months, she gets to hold 3 of our 10 grandchildren. Their staying for a few days and after we finish some business here in Delaware, we will be in Hagerstown, Md where we can visit with all the kids as much as we want.
We arrived in Ocean View, Delaware around 1 p.m.
today and will be here 11 days. I built this house for my good friends who presently live in Florida. It has turn gables on 4 sides which is the Florida "cracker" style .I designed it this way in order to build the roof by hand and by myself!

Pictured is a new found friend looking for a snack as we settled in RVacation RV park in Selma,N.C. We stopped at this park on the way to Myrtle Beach last July so we have come full circle, so to speak!

Here we find the pond that borders the campground and is full of fish...it's a catch and release pond, but no license needed. Will head out early tomorrow.
We traveled 6 hours today and stopped here in Walterboro, S.C. at the New Green Acres park...they have the largest pull in sites I have ever seen...This is a great find for us!! On towards Delaware in the morning.
We plan to hang around South of the Border for a few hours...Love that place
