Our First Harvest Host Experience

Well, against all odds, escaping Hurricane Florence turned out to be a blast! Last Wednesday was pretty busy….We were evacuated from the campground we were staying in (Holly Point), and from there we went to a Harvest Host vineyard for the night.  (For those of you who don’t know what Harvest Host is, it’s a membership that is available for RVers to get with the Harvest Host community…

They let us go inside and see their wine making process in action, and Ann even got to try to press down the grapes!  The owner, Mr. Michael, told us how he became a wine maker, and how he came to open the vineyard…

 

It was really cool!  For all you adults out there, Mom and Dad said their wine is amazing:)  After that, we hitched back up and made our way to Tanglewood RV park in Clemmons, NC.  (If you would like more info on the campground, click here.)  So far, it’s been raining nonstop (we’re on the edge of the hurricane).  The current mood in our camper is: LAZY.

Since we were going stir crazy, Mom and Dad decided to take a trip to Camping World for some supplies.  Why our father has such an obsession with RV toilet paper? …we have no idea. But we do know that every time we go to a store where you can buy the super special kind only used for RVs and boats he goes crazy and all of a sudden, we need five more cases of the stuff. (We have to give him credit for thinking ahead, because the boxes hold only four rolls each… but still). Ann and I have a mission for every Walmart we walk into now: divert Dad from the toilet paper!

I recently had my classic braces taken off and traded them for Invisalign. The reason being that when we leave North Carolina, I won’t have anyone to tend to my braces, so Invisalign seemed to be the best option! Check out my new smile:)img_5531.jpg
