The Sound of Music

On April 29, 2015, Mark and I were driving to Wagon Trail Campground for the first time.  We were a little bit scared.  We had had a number of Workamping jobs where either the boss didn’t like us or our co-workers didn’t like us or both.  We prayed as we passed the Welcome to Door County sign that this would be a good situation for us.  God surpassed all that we could think or imagine.  Wagon Trail Campground is gorgeous, as you well know from my blogs and pictures, and our bosses and co-workers have become like family.  I thought we’d be coming back here for as long as our bodies could hold up.

From Madison, FL

I want to thank all my new Sun N Fun readers for the warm send-off you gave us.  So many of you came by as we were packing up and getting ready to leave.  Your heartfelt farewells and “Have a safe trip” wishes were much appreciated.  We didn’t get out of Sun N Fun till 2:00 this afternoon.  I think that’s the latest we’ve ever started out from a job site, but there were so many of you who said you’ll miss us.  It kind of put a lump in my throat!

Hotel, motel and resort etiquette

Some of you may remember that last fall I wrote a piece on “Public restroom etiquette”.  If you missed it, you can go back on my website ( to October 9, 2015 and read it.  Now that we are coming down to our last couple weeks here, I want to write about “Hotel, motel, and resort etiquette”… any place that provides clean, white linens for your stay.  I will refer to them as a resort below since Sun N Fun is a resort, but it applies to all.

The circus and the open house

I have been so busy of late that I haven’t had time to write about all the things I’ve been busy doing, so I’m going to remedy that now.  And because I haven’t had a working camera, the photos are courtesy of Mark.  This is a long one, but there is an offer at the end that you aren’t going to want to miss!

A sort of fasting and a pouring down of blessings

Yesterday (Monday) Mark had an orientation at the VA in the morning and I slept in.  When I got up I waited till a reasonable hour Pacific Time and called my older sister to discuss some neat things I’ve been learning in my women’s Bible study.  While I talked with her on the phone I had cold pizza from the day before and a Coke.  After Mark’s orientation, he went to McDonalds for lunch and then made a couple “guy” stops.  Little did we know that those lunches would be the last real meals we’d have for over 24 hours.

My camera died :-(

So many of you have told me since I’ve been blogging how much you enjoy my photos.  I had noticed on our way down here that something was wrong with the pictures I was taking.  When I started in the photo club here, I also observed that I was getting an E:6210 error message.  I followed several suggestions the facilitator gave me, and someone else tried to help, but to no avail.  Last week I took my camera to a camera shop someone in the club had recommended and learned that it had to do with the stabilization in my lens and would cost a minimum of $233 to fix it.  No can do!

The Sunday after the storm

I emailed everyone I could think of this morning to forestall anyone worrying about us when they saw the news about the tornado that hit close to where we are.  For those of you who didn’t get an email, you needn’t worry about Mark and me.  We slept through the whole storm and it didn’t greatly affect Sun N Fun.  We’ve seen lots of Spanish moss on the ground and one of the wifi towers was down this afternoon, but everyone here in the park is safe.

What I’ve been doing in my off time

I haven’t sent many pictures lately because I’ve been having technical difficulties with both my camera and my laptop, but tonight I mean to rectify the situation.  Besides sewing and quilting, I’ve also joined a photography club, and I’m learning a bit about ways to improve my photography through the way I shoot pictures and also through the editing process.  We’re practicing on dogs because you can’t control them so you have to learn how to go with the flow.  Here are some shots I took at the dog park last week: Continue reading
