Don't Hate Anyone

Tom Week – Halloween

halloween bug, trick or treating

10/31/19 – HALLOWEEN

It’s Halloween. We are camped on the shore of the Intercoastal Waterway in Surf City North Carolina. Not many kids out here. The view is amazing. Big rain is coming tonight. A bit scary because the water is right there and all the houses along the shore are on stilts.

11/1/19 – Day of the Dead

Lazy, dead, same thing. Spent nearly the entire day sitting in my chair. Got some writing done. That was nice.

It was 25 degrees cooler today. It’s still fairly warm, but the drop takes it toll. Time to head further south.

11/1/19 – Laziest Campground Ever

I accomplished nothing today and I’m proud of that.

Many sailboats went by today. I lost count. Yes, I was counting sailboats.

11/3/19 – Time Change and Blue Velvet

We are in Lumberton North Carolina. This is where the movie Blue Velvet was allegedly set, though it wasn’t filmed here.

We changed time today. Abigail is pissed. She’s pretty sure we’re not feeding her at the right time.

This park has an oddly large number of single middle-aged men. Hmmm? No, no registered sex offenders here.

11/4/19 – Serious Near-Coma Laziness

I can’t blame the time change any more. I just had a do-nothing lazy kind of day. Highlight was watching trucks go by on the highway.

11/5/19 – Back to the lake

We are parked once again on the shores of lake Marion. The guy who led us to our site remembered us. It’s weird coming back to a place so soon. The familiarity is disconcerting.

11/6/19 – Tonya’s Birthday

Waffles for breakfast. Grilled cheese for lunch. Pizza for supper. Happy child.

Bike ride. Thirteen miles. Mostly flat. Many back roads. One dog toll booth. (Dog required petting before I was allowed to pass.)

Another wonderful sunset.

RVing – Quiet Halloween

Tonya Halloween


We are in Four Oaks North Carolina. Long drive today, I’m vewy tiyad.


Another long drive today but we are in Myrtle Beach. We’ll be here a couple weeks at least. Time for rest, riding and school work.


Sitting in the dark on Halloween. No kids here. Too bad. The weather here is wonderful.


Rode my bike today. Felt so good. We’re starting to plan the Thanksgiving trip.


The advantage of being in a giant tourist area is that if you drive long enough you will find the perfect restaurant. We moved down the street a bit to a new RV park, Pirate Land. Tacky and huge. We are about fifty yards from the ocean.


Tonight I can actually hear the waves slowly crashing. There’s a storm out there somewhere. Tonya was outside in her rocking chair for a long time. Happy child. Our plans are changing on a daily basis. I love it.


The birds here in Pirateland are amazing. We have herons, Canadian geese, swans, ducks and a hawk that loves fish.


Kangaroo Gas

Don’t be fooled. There are no kangaroos working here.

shell in tire tracks

This shell survived being run over by the RV. You can just make out the tire tracks in the picture.


This heron was very helpful to the fisherman. He offered to carry their heavy buckets of fish for them.


For national sandwich day Pat made the perfect toasted cheese sandwich
