1. We are staying at Magnolia Branch Wildlife Reserve all of February. It is my favorite rural campground. Lots of peace in quiet and surrounded by nature.

2. Stowing stuff for the move to Magnolia Branch. Should be a nice day for the ride. I’m hoping I can get a Covid vaccination while I’m there. I’m pretty excited about the drive.

3. We arrived safely at Magnolia Springs Wildlife Reserve. It was a more exciting trip than usual, I wiped out some traffic cones.

Day 2: We moved from Doc’s in Gulf Shores to Magnolia Branch Wildlife Reserve near Atmore AL.

Magnolia Branch is a lovely campground with large, wooded lots. The campground is bordered by lakes, ponds, and a creek. It is my favorite rural campground.

Day 3
Parked in our new spot.
Day 4
The rotating mess on the dinette table.
Day 5
A nice grilled cheese for supper.
Day 6
Not my most environmentally correct choice.
At least I can recycle the bottles here.
Day 7
With Valentine’s Day coming up, we thought some crafty hearts would be fun to make on a rainy day.

I appreciate each of you. Your visits, likes, and comments help me feel connected. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE.

Favorite Finds in January

1. WHQ looks a lot better without the factory window treatments. Four more to take down. I need to replace those yucky sidelights too.

2. The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo
The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo opened in June 1989 as Zooland Animal Park and has evolved into The Gulf Coast Zoo 2.0 with a new location and facilities. It’s a real gem.

3. Joe Biden is now President of America. I believe he will fix the mess his predecessor left.
Does not mean he wont leave his own mess.

I hope the first month of 2021 was excellent for you. I appreciate each of you. Your visits, likes, and comments inspire me. May love and oneness be with you. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. Vaxx Now

My Hipstamatic Life

3 Comments

I’m doing a little planning for #the100dayproject. I need to post the title of the project on January 31. The start day is close. I need to get busy with ideas.

1. During the 100 days there will be three or more travel days, one oil change, a Safari park, a cardiologist appointment, and I’ll be living away from WHQ for a few days. Those are the things I know about.

2. Currently I intend to do all the photography and video work for the project with an iPhone. The photos will be taken with Hipstamatic X and edited with Snapseed. Videos will recorded with the 8mm app and edited with the Splice app. All this is subject to change at any time.

I’m debating which 8mm filter goes best the the toy camera filter in Hipstamatic X.

3. The concept is to record my everyday life in words, pictures, and video.

4. I need to come up with a unique hash tag too.

  • #myhipstalife
  • #myhipstamaticlife
  • #100nomaddays
  • #xyborgnomadlife

5. Or maybe I should do it all in black and white

6. Suggestions are welcome.

1. Today the Blackstone 17” Griddle arrived. I am excited about this upgrade to the outside cooking trip. I need to do some minor assembly and then season the cooking surface before I can try it out.

2. I seasoned the griddle this afternoon.

It’s seasoned. Next step is cooking something.

3. A grand experience/experiment. I cooked banana bread in a slow cooker.

It came out good. I over cooked it a bit. I don’t bake so I went too long. It passed the 11 year old boy test. He ate several pieces. He suggested adding vanilla and cinnamon and using a different recipe that included butter.

Thank you for visiting my blog. . Your visits, likes, and comments are greatly appreciated . Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. Seasons greeting.

A Walk in the Woods

4 Comments

Jesse and I went for a walk on a dirt (sand) trail in Gulf Shores. It was a cool walk in the woods at the beginning.

The first thing we found was an abandoned shopping cart.

It had been there a while. It was held down by vines. We walked further in and came across an abandoned sofa. I took several pictures but none were recorded. I’ll return and try again.

The weirdest of all was a creepy doll.

Original position
Flipped over

Much further down the trail, we found the head.

The body and head were not chewed up. The head appeared to have been cut off. See the smilie face? Weirdness.

The sun was setting.

The next day we returned on our bicycles to get a photo of the sofa.

I appreciate each of you. Your visits, likes, and comments are nice. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. Wishing you joy and peace.

1. The Alabama Safari Park now has a yearly pass. There is a cool drive through section and an equally as interesting walk through section.

2. I came across Magnolia Branch Wildlife Reserve a few years ago. It turned out to be one of the best places to camp I have found in south Alabama.

Thank you for stopping in. Your visits, likes, and comments are delightful. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. Wishing you peace and joy.
