"The journey is my home." — Muriel Rukeyser
This afternoon we arrived in Birmingham and are at Sheila's niece's house where her sister Nancy is staying right now. We brought all the fixings for our world famous chicken pasta and salad and put together a pretty good quick meal for us all. Not sure what tomorrow will bring but it is supposed to be in the 60's and sunny here and we may have to take in the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. After driving for so many miles it will be good to get out and do some semi-serious walking! We have our trusty WM sleeping bags and Thermarest inflatable sleep pads, so tonight we are camping out in Kelly's living room. It was a good day, we only had to driive about 350 miles to get here from Jackson, Mississippi. It is nice again to see Nancy and Kelly and the kids but, I REALLY have missed Rosie!!!
Pic today is of our trusty camp stove ready to make tea in the vestibule of our 4 season tent. Note the tropical "jungle" of the Everglades right outside.
