Camping with Peggy

Camping with Peggy is such fun.  I don’t think there are many subjects we haven’t discussed.  We are both avid readers, both love time together and time to ourselves, she loves my dogs and likes my husband — and loves the outdoors.    So this has been a wonderful camping trip.

By the way, Peggy is a superb wildlife photographer.  If you want to see some gorgeous waterbird photos, check out her paddling blog.  She also has a camping blog where she does extensive reviews on campgrounds — mostly in Florida and Georgia now, with future reviews in NC and SC to come.

Today we took a different trail to see different scenery — and ended up at the covered bridge again.  After we were back at the campground, Ron came from the office with trail maps.  So we could finally see where we wanted to go.  Only by that time, we were out of the hiking mood.

Instead, we did what we do best…. chatted.  And thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

I just love Peggy’s trailer.  It’s a 17′ Apex by Coachmen.  She got it for solo camping trips, and it’s perfect for her.  When she’s not outdoors, she can curl up with a good book in her reading nook with the huge windows and still keep an eye on the activities going on in the campground.

I took dozens of photos of her artwork and all the pretty little things that make her trailer feel comfy and homey.  I can’t post them all, but these will give you an idea of how beautifully she has personalized her little home-away-from-home.

She is the only person I have ever heard say that when she wakes up in her camper, she thinks she is in her bed at home.

We’ll both be leaving in the morning.  But we will definitely be getting together for more camping together.

  1. Sharon, I know you live in GA, but not sure exactly where. We are going to be in Cloudland Canyon SP on Sat/Sun. Is that anywhere near you? Would love to shake your hand, and hunt a mushroom. Contact me at bikejudy@gmail.com if we might be able to make this work out.

  2. What a sweet camper….love the shades of green. Cozy as ever! So glad you two shared in a visit! Neato!

    • It lets me know that there is life beyond Casita — which you have already discovered. 🙂

  3. Nice visit!! I love the cozy camper-I’m slowly trying to make mine over into more cozy-less out-of-the-factory! Even though it’s been out for 20+ years!!

    • Don’t you just love the feeling of walking into your camper and thinking, I’m home! It doesn’t have to be all fixed up to give you that feeling — at least it doesn’t for me. But fixing it up does make it even more special. I still doubt I’ll ever get to the point when I wake up in the Casita and think I am in my bed at home, though. 🙂

    Wow….another great post…..I’m thinking I need to do some research on the fair State of Georgia…BTW, looked at Peggy’s website…awesome photo’s….she’s got some kind of talent…guess I need to pick her “photography brain”.. 🙂 have a safe trip home…Horst sends

    • Horst, Peggy has had one of her water bird photos published in a National Geographic publication! And probably has had others published, but the NG one is all I know about.

      We had a safe trip home, but I could have done without going through Atlanta on I-20. Whew!

  5. WOW I love what she has done to her trailer. But I really dislike the corner bed I had that in my class c. Making the bed with bum knees is no fun. But the Apex is really a nice little rig for sure.

    Sounds like you Ladies have had a great time.

  6. That’s a lovely caravan

  7. Looks like you had a great visit! Sorry to be out of touch for so long….we were camped so very far away from the wifi….just could not get caught up!

    • Good to hear from you, Lynne. Hope you’ve come to terms with the basement. Looking forward to seeing how you cope with it. 🙂
