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 us...to touch and feel it... "Through the Lens".

Famous Fillmore

This will be a short entry today. We plan to just relax and enjoy the day. We went down this morning to say good-by to Doug and Joann who are leaving and heading toward Louisiana. It has been so much fun meeting and getting to know them better. I have been reading their journal for several years and it is always neat to actually meet the folks you have been reading about. It feels like you already know them.
They travel with their standard poodle - Fillmore.
I had read so much about Fillmore especially from Linda Payne of RV Dreams. Linda has a real fondness for animals so they always get top billing with her. He is everything she described…..beautiful and well behaved. A real delight. I was promised a photo opportunity with Fillmore this morning before they left and so I have included the photo.
The real treat came when Joann invited me in to see their rig. Full-timers always give the nickel tour. They had painted the walls in their fifth wheel. I love it!! She is going with a southwestern theme with her colors and d├ęcor and I love it! Every wall in most RVs seem to look exactly alike….kinda dull or boring. What manufacturers do is try to create a neutral look that blends with whatever color theme that particular rig might have. Everything is sort of cookie cutter. It is more economical for them to do mass wall boards. But this removes personality. I had read where others had painted their walls and taken out certain pieces of furniture in order to make it more their own but I had never actually seen the results in person…..until today. I love it! They had also removed their sofa and have two comfortable recliners. The bedroom had also been painted in two different colors, all southwestern. She has definitely given me inspiration. Maybe I should thank Doug also…. after all he is the one that did the painting.

I have included a couple of pictures of our new site at Rainbow Plantation. It feels good to be among people. It should be another beautiful day and we plan to relax and enjoy it because the weather calls for rain tomorrow. Hope you enjoy your day!
