April 4

Catching up with our travels since March 26.


We left the beach and headed for Raleigh, NC.  Larry met a new relative, found through his genealogy research.  We had a nice dinner with Alfonso Mooney and his wife.  Two nights were spent at the fairgrounds in Raleigh.  Great spot!  Everything for the trailer–sewer, water and electricity, and Internet was available near the office.  While in Raleigh, we visited the North Carolina Art Museum www.ncartmuseum.org/  with a marvelous collection of Rodin sculptures!  The museum is housed in two buildings with everything from ancient Mesopotamia to contemporary modern art.

We also went to the old State Capital Museum and the Museum of History http://ncmuseumofhistory.org/

3-29  Tonight was spent in a beautiful spot–Camp Creek State Park, West Virginia.  The campground is small–only 20 spots.  We did have full hook-ups, but because the campground was nestled between two tall hills, no cell phone was available.  Larry had dinner with another relative.

3-30   We left early and headed west.  I didn’t get photos crossing state borders, except in Kentucky.  

We took a chance and arrived in Lynnville, Indiana about sunset and looked for the campground outside of town.  There was one site left with full hookups.

  This is a very pretty place next to a small lake.  Many families were out this weekend and most were fishing.  Had a great rainstorm during the night–beautiful lightning.
3-31 Another early start and we arrived home around 2:15!
What a trip!  Larry and I thoroughly enjoyed the travels this winter.  We saw much, met many wonderful people, saw friends, and enjoyed relatives–both closely related and further down the line.
Now—-to catch up on things around Paola!
Until the next trip—  Jeanette and Larry
