Jul 18, 2012 - And we're off to see the wizard...

Today starts a great journey for the de Jong clan. We are so excited to have this opportunity to take the kids on this adventure to Nicaragua. We will be heading to Summerville, SC this afternoon to pick up my Mom. She'll be making this journey with us. We'll start the drive to Boca Raton, Florida tomorrow. The bags are packed, the car is loaded and "we're off to see the Wizard". This is something my father said every time we took off for a trip, and I can't help myself. Adios for now! Kathy

Aug 6, 2011 - Tanglewood Park

We went outside this morning with our cup of coffee and decided this park was so pretty we wanted to stay. Ron went to the office and our site was available for tonight so he paid for another night.

That only took a couple of hours and then we went to eat and take a drive through the rest of the park. The park is gorgeous! The road meanders through the forest and lush green...

When we went by it was a 4 door Jeep being towed by a motorhome. I don't know how they did it but they were able to unhook the Jeep and move the motorhome away from the burning vehicle. The man...

It was time to start our trek east. We found a lovely park here, Tanglewood Park. It was part of land claimed by Sr. Walter Raleigh back in 1584. In the late 1700s, a fort was built here, overlooking the Yadkin River to protect people from attacks during the French and Indian War. In 1921 it was sold to William Reynolds, brother to tobacco entrepreneur RJ Reynolds. Tanglewood has a working farm, horse stables, a Bed & Breakfast, Arboretum, rose and fragrance gardens, golf course, RV park, tennis courts, aquatic center, BMX racing, fishing...
