Here we are…

Here we are…

Dell and Craigys_005

We have been here a week already.

I last blogged about Big Bend..

We left there a few weeks ago and stopped for a quick visit in San Antonio to see The Alamo, The Riverwalk and visit with a few facebook birding friends.

We then zipped to Atlanta avoiding a potential hail and wind storm by driving through the night only stopping when we had no choice because there was a huge truck car carrier fire in front of us.. we waited one and a half hours while it exploded a few times…and finally the fire was put out.


We stayed a few days in Atlanta and visited with our nephew who goes to Emory.

Now we are here..

In Sicksta Adele and Craigys Side yard

Dell and Craigys_009I've set out a few more feeders to add to my Sickstas bird feeders set up.

See the hanging water bottle?…

I created a slow drip system for the birds.

We took a drive to Pinehurst resort with some RVing friends who happened to be staying in the area.

The floral displays were beautiful.

Heard our first Black and White warbler of the season…. 

We drove into town to pick up some ingredients for mushroom soup ~I will use my mushrooms picked in Oregon..

Should be yummy on a day like today..


The Black Vultures had other things in their menu.

So that’s it in this nutshell of a blog post..

We are here in North Carolina until the end of the month..

Then we head Norther..


  1. Dawn, my hubby and I have joined you on RV living~ Our travels have taken us up and down the West Coast so far~ Love the freedom!

  2. Dawn, I have thought of doing a drip system with a water bottle like that too. Do you like how it works? I am glad you are back in my time zone and look forward to seeing you sometime this summer! I cannot imagine sitting on the side of the road and watching a truck explode! I am glad you are okay!

  3. enjoy the southeastern forests...
