We headed south last week as sometimes you just have to get away from the cold.
Although, the official “Ice Out” was declared just before we left.
It didn’t work but we still had fun. All that rain in the southeast? We were there. (But – it didn’t snow…)
Spent a great weekend with the Bradshaws and the Cobbs. Lots of food and fun and conversations! (and, ahem…, no chopped liver) The guys played golf and Betsy Bradshaw and I stayed at her friend’s beach house. It’s one of the oldies but goodies right on the beach. Huge porches, huge house, huge view. It was fun!
I have to give credit to Facebook (and a new smart phone) for two fun and unexpected meet-ups.
While in Nags Head, NC, I posted that we were there. A college friend, that I haven’t seen since the early 70′s, wrote that she was in Nags Head, too. So we met for lunch and had a wonderful time chatting and eating and chatting at the Rundown Café in Kitty Hawk.
Then, a cousin (Meg Traber Corpolongo – a Desmond) who lives in Burlington, WA, posted a comment on FB that she and her husband were in Virginia for a wedding on Saturday. We haven’t seen them for awhile. One problem, since getting our new phones, I didn’t have her cell number on the new phone and she wasn’t checking FB while touring a museum in Fredericksburg. No problem, messaged her daughter on FB and she sent us the number, We called, we met at the Virginia Barbeque in Fredericksburg, VA.
This was our first trip with our new iPhones. I loved it. I don’t know that Moffett even cares but – too bad.
Posting photos while on the road – fun!
Sending messages and photos to sons and future daughter-in-law – fun!
Finding friends/cousins while bopping around – fun!
Finding Edwards Country Ham in Surry, VA with the help of Google maps – fun!
I didn’t even bring my camera.
Don’t get excited, there are still photos, lots and lots of photos…
Just used the iPhone camera. And it was great.
