HELLO!!  Last weekend was great as we attended the USS UHLMANN reunion as guests of old friends.  It was held in Mt. Pleasant, SC so we camped at Mt. Pleasant KOA, one of our favorites!  Reunions are wonderful and especially when some of the members have not seen each other for 55 years!!  Left in the pic is my sweet hubby, me, Diane and Tommy Sayles.  Tommy went to school with my hubby and they also belonged to a gymnast team at the YMCA in our hometown.
Reunions are such fun!  When you are with old friends, it is as though no time had passed and the conversation is just picking up where you left off in a comforting sort of way.  Later, Tommy moved next door to me as a teen and he and my brother joined the Navy.  Small world!
   Camping at the KOA in Mt. Pleasant while there, was also a very good time.  It is one of our favorite camping sites.  We always take the site nearest the lake and the real red train caboose that is also rented out to campers.  Children just love this!

A gathering of black birds who gathered at the fire pit and postured at one another.

A beautiful butterfly on the trail.

We love this big brown bear that is carved in a tree trunk near the lake.  Hubby wants to carve something like this someday :')

And this Mama Squirrel was ever our companion...

Beautiful Orange trumpet vine we saw along the walking trail.

Thanks for visiting and do come again.  Don't forget to visit my Etsy Shop as I am putting new fall items in all the time!

Pleased you had such a great time Kerrie. I loved the photo's but I will tell you I have a soft spot fot them, I feed them every morning as I have quite a few who live in the trees nearby.

Have a lovely week-end.

What wonderful pictures of your reunion! You have really given us a feel for what it was like. I love the blackbirds all gathered, and especially the bear carved from a tree trunk! An trumpet vine is one of my favorites, so vibrant. Your header is so special and beautiful!

You all look very happy in that photo ... I just love all your outdoor photography. I often get blackbirds and crows confused...I think blackbirds are slimmer, right?

Lovely photos. Thanks so much for sharing them with us :-)
