Places and PlaytypieYouTubePinterestTwiiterfacebookSo, here we are enjoying the full-time RV lifestyle in a 29' Winnebago Outlook motor home. How did we come to live in a camper? Two sensible people who loved their life in New York City. Now we travel from campground to RV park to boondocking at stadium tailgating parties or in the desert with joyful abandon. We call our [mobile] home "Maybe". We are slowly visiting places around the United States. On our continental USA-RV travels, complete with our dog, we follow the coast of this country, visit unique places, eat good food, and stay as green as possible with our four panel solar power array and tell you about it in this travel blog.

Atalaya - The Winter Home of Anna and Archer Huntington
April 9 - May 2, 2014
Atalaya, an empty Moorish castle, sits just off the beach in Huntington State Park, South Carolina. While most people prefer their historic houses beautifully furnished with period pieces and fresh flowers, I am far more intrigued and inspired by the empty brick walls and floors of the over 50 rooms, kennels, bear pens, bathrooms, sunrooms and studios of Anna and Archer Huntington"s winter home.

Soldiers of a Faux War

Soldiers of a Faux War: I shall remain forever confused by the desire of some people to reenact battles, to shoot glorified cap pistols at each other, sleep on the ground, eat almost nothing and pretend it is anything like a real war...ort Fisher, Fort Anderson and the Battle of Forks Road around Wilmington, North Carolina... we relived them all in one form or another. read more

Requiem in Glass: Brady's Greenhouse

Requiem in Glass: The Cameron Art Museum in Wilmington, North Carolina is a good enough reason to travel this country.

Zentangle from my Waiting Sketchbook

Chocolate and Wine, Tar Heel Style: Wilmington, NC - I haven't thought much about Valentine's Day since elementary school. Back in the 1950s, the week before the big day was rife with giggles and mysterious smiles as we each dropped our lacy heart creations for our special friends into a large cardboard box decorated with cut-out red hearts and white lace paper doilies. read more

Wilmington, North Carolina. Warm Weather, Hot Food

Warm Weather, Hot Food: Wilmington, North Carolina — After a visit to the very large and popular seahawk sculpture on the University of North Carolina Campus (Visitors love to climb on her back and reenact scenes from Avatar), we headed for the Front Street Brewery in downtown Wilmington. Bar food, beer and football hype -- here we come! read more

Sully the puppy

Lassie, Hit the Road: In just a few days we will be heading away from the northeast towards parts unknown.... I'm ready for a lonely ocean beach somewhere, a place where I can do my version of contemplative thinking. The big thoughts, like should I keep on hi-lighting my hair with purple? Should I stop eating red meat? Is Hugh Jackman as nice on the inside as he is on the out? read more
