This was a pretty easy weekend. We weren’t full…not even close. Maybe about 75% but the best part was this group of campers were pretty good. We had several big rigs in the park including a very nice Escalade parked right across from us with a grandfather, grandmother and grandson. It is always fun to watch grandparents with their grandchildren. This young man was helping his grandfather set everything up and when it was time to leave he helped him get everything packed up. Mike even helped them get their portable satellite dish aimed correctly. Yep, you heard that correctly…Mike!
We pulled tags this morning and blew off a few sites and then we took the morning and early afternoon off. It is really too hot to do anything extremely exciting outside so we drove to LaGrange and had lunch together. We weren’t gone long but it was nice to get out and away for awhile.
When we got home Mike went out to do a little weed eating. It seems these afternoon thundershowers are encouraging the grass/weeds to grow. While he was weed whacking I stayed at the motor home and made some Taco Soup. I like to make this dish and freeze some of it. It seems we can get 3 big freezer containers from one recipe. No, I didn’t forget that we don’t have a freezer. We are temporarily using the chest freezer that is in the storage building by our motor home. This storage building is where we keep the bags of ice we sell during the week when the Trading Post is closed. One of the former camp host built this storage building for the park. Nice huh?
When Mike returned we decided to take a walk down by the lake. I read where these walks, when you carry your camera, are called photo walks. So I suppose Mike and I did a photo walk late this afternoon. We are both trying to learn more about how the Nikon D60 works…what all we can do with it. Then we are still learning how to use Picasa Web. So much to learn but isn’t it fun????
While we were on our photo walk we saw a Great Blue Heron perched across the lake on an old dead tree limb in the water. We have never seen a Blue Heron in this park. It was pretty exciting to see the old guy stop by for a visit. He was a distance away but we managed to get a shot of him. The other shots are of the lake. It was so quiet down there this afternoon. Nobody was camping in this area so we had it to ourselves. Nice!
We also saw Mama Mallard and her three little children. They were born about a month ago and we have tried to get a good picture of them. Whenever we had the camera they were nowhere to be found. Today they were out swimming. They have really grown up.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing in our camp host adventures. We appreciate your visit and hope you found something of interest while visiting. We have several new friends that have decided to join us and we hope that you will click on their thumbnail pic and take a look at their blog (if they have one).
Life is Good!!
