We went down to Charleston for a UKI trial and some time on the beach. I drove the RV down on Friday. It was hot as heck. (90 degrees in the shade and high humidity) . Before I even got to the trial, which didnt start until 6pm, I was already thinking I might no be going. Yes, it was that miserable.
My husband drove down on Friday night. He had to go through a little bit of the storm but he came from the opposite direction, which was good. I needed his car to go to the trial since I was staying at an RV park and not the trial site. The RV park is pretty nice.
Saturday morning we drove to the beach. We went to Seabrook island. A friend of mine called me in a pass so we could go to the beach.
So I guess we sold at the right time and now I dont feel so sad about the whole thing.
After walking on the beach, my husband dropped me off at the trial site.
All I needed was a novice standard Q, so I can get out of novice and I needded a speedstakes Q for nationals. I didnt get either. LOL. I only entered Java.
I did gamblers first and did it for NFC. So I could train in the ring. I wanted to work startlines and stopped contacts. she did great. Then next up was Novice standard.
Next up was Master series heat. We already had a Bye in this but I entered for practice. This was a hard course with lots of backsides.
.I was behind and couldnt get a good push after the a-frame so she went sideways through the broad jump.
Next up was the second half of Master heat, jumpers.
We did manage to get through this course. We had a bobble from 12-13 but we manage to hang on and get through clean. So we got another bye in Master series. My husband and daughter got there in time to see this run. We left after that and went to lunch. (We had to return at 6pm for the trial again)
I came back at 6pm. First up was Speedstakes. I really wanted this.
The next class was jumpers. My daughter and husband had come back to get me. I had decided to not stay until the end so we could spend some time on the beach before it got to dark. Jumpers I did for NFC. That way if she broke her start line, I could put her back and still be able to run.
After that we went back to the beach. Boy was it windy.
Then next morning Stephanie drove home and we decided not to drive back to the beach and just go home.
