The Hubs and I are really digging the camp life. I’m gonna be honest, I didn’t think I’d like it: sleeping out in the middle of nowhere, talking to *shudder* strangers, peeing in the woods, eating scavenged food… OK. I exaggerate. But consider my point of reference: when I was in the Army, “camping” involved ruck sacks, miles long marches in combat boots, and lots of chiggers.
What The Hubs and I do is far from bivouacking but not lux enough to be called “glamping.” It’s just, I don’t know, fun.
There’s a range off the side of the camper. It’s the most beautiful thing ever.
Actually, I’m wrong. That is the most beautiful thing ever: The Hubs making breakfast.
He made sausage patties and scrambled eggs. Yum. I contributed the avocado.
This past weekend, we packed Squeekerz up and went to Lake Tobesofkee in Macon, Georgia. It was beautiful. While we were there, we decided to take the opportunity to visit some of the local sites like the Tubman Museum and the Hay House.
We didn’t stay at the Tubman Museum very long because they were having a Celebrate Dads event and it was paaaaacked. That being said, the few pieces of the exhibit that I did see were beyond soul stirring. There were images of prisoners in labor camps, repurposed found objects, and examples of inventions/improvements by African American inventors. Of course, I couldn’t help but to stand mesmerized at the images of Ms. Harriet Tubman. I didn’t take any photos of the Harriet Tubman exhibits out of respect for the creators of the pieces. A few weeks ago, I watched the “Minty” episode of Underground starring Ms. Aisha Hinds and, oh my word, she just brought everything to life. So standing in that room, seeing the almost life size sculpture of Ms. Tubman was overwhelming.
The Hay House is beyond incredible. I can’t imagine living in a place that is so over-the-top elaborate.
This home had gas running throughout when gas and indoor plumbing was just being introduced to society.
The oak doors are hand painted to look like a much more expensive wood. Why? Because they could afford it.
