J. Strom Thurmond Lake Volunteer Village
About three weeks ago we had a couple of nice visits with some wonderful RV friends.
Paul and Marti are currently anchored in Columbia, SC, for some medical appointments. So on Wednesday, 3/13, we met in Batesburg-Leesville, SC, for lunch at a place called Wiz’s Eatery.
We hadn’t seen them since Christmas Day, so we enjoyed a tasty lunch buffet and spent a couple of hours talking, laughing, and having a good time. We always have a lot of fun together and look forward to spending some time with them again VERY soon!
In fact, we hope to take advantage of their close proximity and see them a few more times before they start rolling down the road again.
The following day John and Ginny, on their way north from Florida, arrived at Petersburg COE Campground for the weekend. As luck would have it, we had a task to complete at Petersburg just after they had arrived, so we stopped in for a few minutes to welcome them to our “neck of the woods.”
Friday afternoon the four of us went to a local RV and Boat Show in Augusta. We walked through the small sampling of RV units and also checked out the pontoon boats. Here are Ginny and Terri enjoying the warm afternoon sun while sitting atop one of the boats.
The sun was very bright, so they both had on their “movie star” sunglasses! After the RV Show we stopped at Chili’s for a late afternoon meal. The food was delicious.
We hadn’t seen John and Ginny since the Carolina Clan Gathering back in November, so we had quite a bit of catching up to do. After dinner we drove out to the Volunteer Village to show them where we’re staying, and then back to their site at Petersburg Campground just in time for a beautiful sunset.
Saturday afternoon they drove out to our site for some snacks, drinks, and more visiting. As the afternoon wore on, the wind picked up and it turned a bit chilly.
The “movie stars” donned their hoods to try and stay warm! We had a great time together, and we look forward to catching up with each other again this Fall, if not before.
It’s always so nice to see our RV friends! One of the wonderful things about this lifestyle is all the great friends we’ve made along the way, and knowing that our paths will most likely cross again someday.
See ya soon!!!
