Travels With Harley

These are scenes from Croft State Park.
Harley takes a break. He has a boo-boo on his back paw, but he won't let me fuss with it.

This is the second site we moved to at Croft State Park in South Carolina (south of Spartanburg). Harley picked it out because to the left (not shown) is a nice soft play area for Frisbee, golf and tennis. Those are his three favorite games. We were one of the very few motorhomes that wasn't hauling horses. Most folks were camping in horse trailers. The front of the horse trailer has a camper area, the rear end is for hauling the horses, a rather unique situation. You can rent a campsite and rent a stall for your horse(s). The horses are not allowed in the campground area, but they are housed nearby.

The park is dotted with rustic fencing. Harley did his pee-mail here.

Hang a right at the fork and more pee-mail for Harley.

Plenty of trails to choose from, some allow horses, others allow bicycles, all allow dogs and humans.

Harley loves hiking and sniffing the foliage, sometimes he eats a little wild salad.

And yet another opportunity for Harley to check pee-mail from other canines and leave some of his own.

We stumbled upon a big new sink hole. It's about fifteen feet deep. We didn't want to get too close in case more ground gave way and we couldn't get back out again. Cell phone service was super flaky. Technology is failing daily it seems. Whether it's my old equipment or the rest of the world, I have no idea, but we managed not to fall into the abyss. Thank goodness for small favors.

I have lots of pictures of the fencing because we were always stopping for pee-mail.

The park comes with benches that comfortably seat people over 7 feet tall. Alternatively, you can tie your horse up here.


Harley keeps changing fur coloring like a chameleon. He has his trademark one-ear up as he contemplates nature. When he went for his vaccinations recently, he weighed in at his highest weight ever, a whopping 6.8 pounds. That is over 3 kilos. He will be 5 years old at Christmas.

Amazing how time flies. Seems like only yesterday he came into my world at 5 months old. He was severely malnourished with very little fur and came burdened with numerous phobias. He had the energy of a sleepy turtle. The first vet we visited was sure he wouldn't last long and gave him a doom and gloom prognosis of a very short life. Funny, my docs said the same about me too a few months before I met Harley. We've both been avoiding those doctors ever since.

Well *ahem* here we are forging ahead, one day at a time, ignoring their predictions. It seems angels everywhere are looking out for us, especially you, my gentle reader.

We owe you many thanks from the bottom of our heart and soul to the tip of our head and tail.

Life is goof.
