Today we drove back to Tallahassee to go to the History and Science Museum. It's mostly open air, part living history, part indoor displays and part open air zoo. They also have a ropes course in the trees, but we did not go there! My fear of heights is improving, but not to that degree yet! The museum is very kid friendly, while still engaging us oldsters. There's even a daycare in the museum, lucky kids!
One section is built around a plantation house, which we could walk through and read about the history. This was not an elegant "Gone With The Wind" house, but home to an average plantation owner and slaves. There was some good information about the life of the slaves as part of the house and grounds.
This large painted quilt block was outside the house, and I've seen a lot of these before and have one of my own. This one was a little unique in the coloring and design that was added. So this is for my quilty friends' inspiration, you know who you are!
Back at the ranch, so to speak, Bob prepared for a predicted cold night, (below 32 for most of the night) and added water to our fresh water tank and then disconnected the hoses and filter so we won't run the risk of damaging our filter. The tanks under our trailer are heated as long as we are running the furnace, which we do most nights. It's been a windy day with white caps on the lake and the wind blowing right at us.
It was 33 when we got ourselves up and going this morning, but sunny. We didn't have anything special planned for today, so it was mostly spent indoors. We did do some walking around the campground, there aren't any easily accessible trails here, so we walk the loops mostly. Not very many people out and about. Bob did find the little laundry room they have here, and even though it didn't look very clean and neat, we are stuck with that while we travel. Some campgrounds have surprisingly nice laundry facilities, some have none at all, and some are questionable.
I spent part of the day putting together what I need for my next YouTube Home Improvement video, mixed with working on some stitching. I'm enjoying this "slow stitching" that I'm engaged with now. Bob went to the Piggly Wiggly in the town of Sneads for a short list of groceries. And that's the highlights for today!
Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate the time you have taken to look for and read my story. I hope you find something that you like!
Hi! I'm Pam! Join me on this journey through the next steps of life!
