Home of Fred the Snake (and Dr. Peter)

Summer family fun at Dewees

Family fun is off to a great start. Nicky, Jules, Perdy and Jack arrived and got into the spirit quickly. Jules brother Alban came for the day, with Julie, Dylan, Megan and Asher  

Fred the Snake visits friends at a reptile show!

We went to the “Repticon” reptile show in Columbia (SC) to see how many people would be interested to meet Fred, and to take some books home. Happily, several did. A truly ethnic experience. They had a special place for me.     We met new friends     Marion was very brave.

Jodi's big birthday

A great gathering of family and friends in Goldsboro, NC, to celebrate Jodi Bowden’s 50th birthday. The young (and older) ones had a good time!

Fred is going to a reptile show!

We are going to the large Repticon show in Columbia at the weekend. Fred is looking forward to meeting many new friends, and introducing them to his books. (Marion is not too sure about it)

Dewees island annual sand art festival

Fun on the beach. The Fletcher/Bowden family again gained best in show (actually in a tie with the Savages) with a great depiction (and rendition) of “itsy bitsy spider”, which did indeed get washed away, by the incoming tide

July 4th on Dewees island

Celebrating with a decorated cart parade and welcome ice cream
