GrumbleSmiles was set up to provide innovative answers to tackling the problems of loneliness in later life. Many older people are less able to get out and about, which can be the first steps towards a life of isolation.
My travel around the clouds continue (you can see more of my travel adventures by clicking on CLOUD SURFING in the TAG CLOUD). Today I invite you to join me on a trip to unknown destinations around the world and an opportunity to talk to new and interesting people. All at no cost and from the comfort of your own armchair.
We are going cloudsurfing to North Carolina in the Spring.
Courtesy of a blogger and photographer Barbara Rogers. She has a lot in common with my career history, as before she retired she was an Activity Director in a retirement village. Now she makes beautiful pottery and writes an excellent blog called “Alchemy of Clay”.
The photograph on the left is one illustration of a walk near Lake Tomahawk which Barbara did on the 3rd May this year. You can see the rest of this blog by clicking on the link below.
This is another trip Barbara made in 2017 to Bean Station, Tennessee. The blog contains some really interesting descriptions of the early history of settlers moving from the Appalachian Mountains into the Wild West.
Barbara Rogers’ whole blog is very well illustrated and has some excellent photographs of her ceramics as well as some great photographs of nature. The site is well worth a visit and can be found on the link below.
In the weeks ahead, I will publish more blogs and photographs from my cloud surfing travels.
