It makes for extremely nice days like think 70s but your nights get cool—around 35-40s. It is wonderful to be able to have the children run around outside and enjoying the sunshine. Collin has been working on getting his car finished( he restored a Camaro before we left—built floors, fixed the body and painted it) and he is sunburned being outdoors each day. Being up on a mountain the house is damper. We keep a dehumidifier running almost constantly to keep away the wetness. Not a muggy humid, just a wet one. Michigan was humid and I did not care for it, but this is a different kind of wet.
It was gorgeous, a big hike to go see these waterfalls but well worth it. We had to laugh, here we were not completely out of shape, but definitely not used to hiking and we were huffing and puffing and even stopped to take a break. We saw some older ladies chuckle at our need to rest as they kept right on going up the trail!! People are active around here, so many older people we saw walking the trails, different than what we were used to.
Here the children made the steep climb up. They were troopers, this will be wonderful come summer time when it is hot.
We then did some driving to find our next destination, Carl Sandburgs home. Everything was GPS because we don’t know how to get anywhere at all.
The only problem I have with moving to a new area is that I do not know my way around. I am so thankful for GPS , I don’t know what I would do without it. In our family most everyone has an iPhone. Myself uses a blackberry. I get teased that my blackberry isn’t the best all the time. We constantly joke whose phone is better. For the record, the blackberry got us down to North Carolina–not the iPhone.
Here was some “fun” footage of us getting lost once again.
Hope you enjoyed, we are going to try and do maybe a video or two each week. Give everyone more of a “real” sense of who we are. Hope you like them.
