Al Selby Checks In

Rolling right along.....Al Selby tells about a great historical journey a mobile home!

"In June Nancy & I took our 9 year old granddaughter, AVERY, on a civil war journey which she had just finished studying (her request). We started at Appomatox, hit Montecello and Manassas, and ended up in Gettysburg. It was a great week in the motor home.

In July Nancy and I took our 7 year old granddaughter, AMBER, on a trip up the NC outer banks to see some aquariums (her request). This was her first trip in the motor home. We started in Wilmington and visited the NC Aquarium at Ft Fisher, then visited the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores, rode the ferry to Ocracoke Island and visited the lighthouse, then to Hatteras and visited the lighthouse, then to Kill Devil Hill to the Wright Brothers Memorial, then to the NC Aquarium at Manteo (Roanoke Island), and finally home. It was a great week with our youngest grandchild. By the Way, AMBER states the Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores is the best with Ft Fisher a close second.

We are busy planning a trip to Washington to see the monuments with the 4 oldest grandchildren the week of August 10th (age 9 - 17); and a trip to San Diego in September for the annual convention of my retirees association. More on that later."


(Al, when yaw'll get up to the Washington area be sure to stop by and visit the CHS54 Institution. Guided tours are conducted weekly from 9am til 5pm. The complex is only 6 miles from the White House, as the crow flies. It's a little longer in a Mobile Home.)
