Well once again our plans that are always “etched in Jello” changed this Saturday morning. An opportunity to dig through some mine tailings for minerals and rocks specimens got rained out. SO, we decided to go tour the historic Fort at Harrodsburg, KY. I’m posting the link to the video here while sitting in the Bandy Creek campground in a bushcraft event and gathering. So here’s the video, the pictures and more stories from the fort will follow later.
Ok, I’ve not kept up the blog quite as well as could be expected. But that’s just it, life’s full of the unexpected! There actually is someone cut from the same cloth as I am.
So, that is what has happened. Layla and I will be travelling with our new companions. So now you’ll be seeing Brenda and Liberty (her fur-baby) included in the travels and adventures of Dan and Layla.
I met Brenda in the desert in January at a gathering of vandwellers and nomads. We kept in touch throughout the year until she came and joined us a month ago. And within that month’s time the Gypsy Woman and the Nomad Man have managed to travel about 1400 miles, have a moonlight dinner on the beach, explore old forts, and visit historic Savannah. So things have been a little busy and I’ve let you guys just guess at what’s going on. Now I’ll clue you in.
At Thanksgiving Brenda and I loaded up the pups and headed for St. Augustine Florida to have dinner with some of my family. Of course after dinner we took the leftovers we packed and headed to the beach. Nothing like a moonlit dinner on the beach.
The next day we took to St Augustine to explore the Oldest City and take in a few sights. But only after these two girls got to see the beach and play.
That’s our two “girls”, and yes they have become the best of sisters. They played and played and then napped that evening.
We actually did leave the beach, I mean how much sun and fun can two people handle??
We toured the lighthouse museum then actually climbed all those steps to the top, 165 feet high.
We took in the the fort Castillo de San Marco
I’m gonna give you a link here to Brenda’s blog where she posted some pictures of the fort. Click Here and Visit: “The Sunny Side” She did a really great job of capturing the feel and presence of the fort. Besides, she also maintains a great blog.
I’m stopping for tonight, we head out south and west in the morning to go visit a place I was at back in 2014. “Shut Up and Grow It” is and intentional community I stayed at for a few days back then. They have grown and we are excited to go check on them.
So, we’re going to bed and try to get some sleep and rest for the next adventure starting in the morning.
