A huge storm is blowing into the Outer Banks so we hit the road on day 36. I was concerned about the wind, reports were calling for 45 mph gusts. After we left, my VIP found an article saying there'd be 65 mph gusts, chest deep flooding in some areas and 25' waves.
We celebrated getting the heck out of there.
The weather had been bad anyway. Cold, windy, rainy. Then, the KOA had some workers doing electrical work and they cut through the water line, 2 days in a row (uh, aren't you supposed to check for underground lines before you start digging).
We were not happy with the location. The service was not great either, they never even replied to my text this morning (they have a text line for guests). So off we drive (once they got the water fixed so we could fill our fresh water tanks).
We found this wonderful place called Fair Game Beverages. The owner, employees and a few other patrons were inside. We ate, we drank, we talked about the universe and life. There's an art gallery, the owner - Lyle - is an artist and a collector. One of the employees lost a loved one to suicide. This was a divine connection for sure.
You can't control what happens around you, you can only control how you respond to it. We ended up in an amazing place - we're going to stick around for another night, check out the area. Typically, Harvest host is a one night deal... but we were invited to stay another. So, we are staying.
Friends, there's opportunity all around you. Even in the storm. All you have to do is open up to it. Move if you feel prompted to move.
Here's to another wonderful day on this planet. Rain, cold weather and all. Love you all!
I had a dream that I was traveling all over the world. In less than 6 months, I sold almost everything I own...bought a Toy Hauler (the "garage" is my art studio) and am now living wherever, whenever...just me, my art, and my cats.
