Sometimes we look at sights in nature but don't really see. While hiking in the woods the other day, it became a realization that we need to open our heart and eyes to see the beauty of the simple things in nature with each season. There is so much order and purpose in His creation. God has given us awesome beauty in this world to see and enjoy... if we would but stop to see and feel it. Join us as this blog is about stopping to see the real beauty around touch and feel it... "Through the Lens".

Going From Zero to Full in One Day

Friday morning when I finally got up and going I took our two little Shih Tzus outside for their morning "break." The campground was totally empty. The peacefulness was unbelievable. The sky was that clear blue that you see during this time of the year. The birds were chirping and the Hummingbirds were dive bombing the feeders. You could lift your face up toward the sun and feel its warmth. It wasn't raining!! You could soak in the quiet. In just a few hours that quiet would be broken with the sounds of campers coming to enjoy a wonderful, fall weekend. Campgrounds are nice when they are empty but lets face it, they were meant to be enjoyed by campers. One of the jobs of a campground host is to help the campers get in and settled into a perfect spot for the weekend. It is wonderful to see families playing together and having a good time. By the time it gets dark, the lights have been placed on the awnings and the campfires begin to light up. Ahhh, the wonderful smell of a campfire! Mike and I always love to take a walk around the campground in the evening so we can take it all in.
Saturday morning we only had seven sites left open. Around 12:30 a group of Good Sam members traveling together came into the campground with five motorhomes and a fifth wheel. Wow! Mike got in the "mule" and went around with the lead member of the group and they found suitable sites for all six rigs. Everybody was happy. Right after they arrived a travel trailer entered and took the last available site. We are full! The campground is no longer quiet, at least not like it was Friday morning, but if a campground could smile I am certain this one was grinning from contentment.
It was a great weekend! I hope your weekend was a good one also.
