Sometimes we look at sights in nature but don't really see. While hiking in the woods the other day, it became a realization that we need to open our heart and eyes to see the beauty of the simple things in nature with each season. There is so much order and purpose in His creation. God has given us awesome beauty in this world to see and enjoy... if we would but stop to see and feel it. Join us as this blog is about stopping to see the real beauty around us...to touch and feel it... "Through the Lens".

On the Road

Well, we finally got to leave Pine Mountain!! Amazing isn’t it? We started the day getting things ready for departure. Since we have never traveled in this motorhome with all of our worldly goods aboard, it took some time to get things packed and secured for travel. We went to LaGrange around 10:30 to visit with our son and have lunch. We decided to do a little shopping at Wal-Mart and then we just had to go over and say good-by to his little dog, Josh. Josh is a special little Shih Tzu, about 5 pounds worth of attitude, that used to travel with us before he became Stephen’s special companion. We finally got back to Pine Mountain RV Resort around 3:30. As we were getting the final things checked off our departure list we broke one of those awful day/night shades in the living area. We have owned three other motorhomes and have never had one to break until today. We had to stop and try to figure how to get the stupid thing up and secure so it didn’t look awful just hanging there. We decided to velcro it up until we can figure out what to do with it. We had to go into Pine Mountain to get the velcro and then Mike managed to get it up and under the valance so it doesn’t even show. I never put those things down in the living area, only the bedroom. I have heard from so many others how easy they are to break and today I got to experience it first hand. Needless to say we were late getting started but made it to Montgomery by 8:00. We decided to stay with Uncle Wally for the night. We didn’t get far but it’s a start.
