Where did August go?

Amazing! I cannot believe it's well over a month since I last posted to this blog. Where did August go?

At the time of that posting we were looking forward to the visit of our granddaughter Caitlin from Norfolk, England. She has been here for two weeks and only has ten days before she flies home and back to school.

Gail and Caitlin enjoying Sarah Duke Gardens, Durham NC.

We all enjoyed our trip to the beach - Wrightsville Beach NC.

Wilmington, NC. It's twinned with Gail's birthplace, Doncaster, Yorkshire, England, hence this photograph.

The obligatory photo. The USS North Carolina is awesome.

In the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, TN

Dollywood, TN

I am a strong woman Granddad!

I think I'm going to get wet . . . . .

. . . . I did get drenched through, but this was after the "River Battle". Gail and Caitlin just "put me out in the sun to dry"

We have crammed a lot into these first two weeks - visits to the beach, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the thrills and delights of Dollywood and much valued family time.

Gail and Caitlin - on "retail therapy"!

We're off to DC in Friday. Unfortunately, when I booked the hotel and tours I didn't realize that it was Labor Day weekend. Hey-ho, we will still enjoy it I know, and as many have told me, it is ALWAYS busy in DC.
