June

This has been a busy and fast month with lots of personal life things going on. BUT we

did manage a day trip to the beach. Two of my daughters and one of my grandsons. We

are only about 3 hours from the coast so not along drive.I use to do it many years

ago when I was a teenager and we didn't have the interstate highway. I love sitting

and watching and listening to the ocean but quit actually going in the water a long

time ago. At this time there has been some unusual shark attacks two young people

have been bitten and lost their left arms.I think a lot of people are staying out as there

have been quite a few sightings in shallow water. I think it is just a sign as to how bad

our eco system is out of balance. We did have a good day with no bad things happening.

My two girls had a fun time in the water even though it was rough. My grandson and I

sat and watched them.

My favorite time for the beach is in the fall and spring time when it is not so hot and

crowded. A day at the beach in summer is very rare for me.

Until Next Time

Catch up for May


The first annual Balloon Festival was held in our area Memorial Day weekend and it

was a great success. It experienced some problems due to the unexpected turnout. It

was a free event except for parking and food. We were able to attend two days of

the weekend and enjoyed it so much. It was a beautiful sight to see all the colorful

balloons getting ready and going up in the air.

It was held Memorial Day weekend so they had a Field of Remembrance that you could place

a flag for someone you lost or who had served in the military.



 It was a great weekend.


Until our next adventure God Bless and Take Care

Local Travel AvaGardner Museum

The Ava Gardner museum is located in Smithfield NC. This is another local museum

that has been ignored by me for years. It far exceeded my expectations. It honors the

life, the loves and the legacy of a small town farmers daughter who became a leading

lady in Hollywood and an international star. The museum contains memorabilia from her life,

clothes jewelry and movie costumes. The museum contains  portraits of Ava

completed by Bert Pfeiffer who did a portrait of her yearly for many years.She spent the

last years of her life in Spain and England. Ava died January 25 1990 from pneumonia.

She was buried in Smithfield NC beside her parents. The photos I am sharing show

some of the excellent  exhibits  they have, the portraits done by her admirer and her

gravesite. I hope you enjoy the little bit of information I have shared.







Thanks for reading and please share Linda
