NOVEMBER 2011

We visited our friends, Dave and Juanita, who have RV hookups on their property (east of Asheville), so we were able to stay in our RV. In between sightseeing and socializing, Tomand Dave worked on a couple of projects (Dave has a sawmill).
One of the local attractions is Table Rock. The four of us took the 2 mile hike up to the top for a great view.

Last November we had planned to join Dave and Juanita at James Island in Charleston, SC for the annual light show. We had to cancel at the last minute, so this year we were determined to make it.

Other friends, Sue and Ted, are camp hosts at James Island, so the six of us enjoyed exploring the area. Charleston has much to offer and one of our favorite things is low country dining. We dined at Fat Hen, Poogan's Porch and attended Charleston Cooks for a shrimp and grits cooking demonstration.

I’d say the highlight of the trip for Tom was the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown. We’ve been on other carriers, but this one had the actual plane he crewed in Viet Nam, as recognized by the tail numbers.

We were looking forward to seeing Tommy, Jee-Won and Colton for Thanksgiving in Lake Worth, Florida. Joining us were Trevor, Kate, Morgan, Keegan and Tyler from MD as well as other extended family. It was a busy week with lots of grandchildren time.

We’re going to winter in central Florida, so it seemed like a good opportunity to get our windows repaired at Suncoast in Hudson (on Florida's west coast). Our windows are double paned and over time they develop leaks and fog up. To repair, the windows are removed, cleaned, resealed and reinstalled. 
We were happy to have clear windows again. It only took two days and we had some time before our reservation at the Peace River Thousand Trails, so we went to visit our friends Jerry and Dori who live nearby. Coincidentally, other friends, Jerry, Ruth, Herb, Lorraine, Darlene and Joe were planning a visit, so we enjoyed a full day.
