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".

A Vintage Kind of Day


What a fun day this has been!!!  This weekend Chewacla hosted a vintage camper rally.  I have seen vintage campers on facebook, magazines, Pinterest but not any up close and personal.  Now I have!!
                


This group does their part in giving RVers the reputation as the friendliest people anywhere.  We met the first of several of these folks on Friday when we were taking our walk.  Sherry started talking with us telling us all about the group and just how special each one was. It was apparent they were friends and they meant a lot to each other.  The amazing thing was she talked with us as if she had known us quite some time and we were part of the group.
                     


We returned on Saturday and met just about every one of the owners of these neat little trailers.  They had an "open house" and we were welcomed with open arms.
           


The interesting thing about these little campers is what a personality each has taken on.  Most name their campers and decorate with a theme in mind.  I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves.
                     


It is so wonderful to see these vintage campers loved and restored to their former beauty.....no, BETTER than their former beauty.  They aren't just campers....they are part of this amazing group!!
       






Thank you guys for allowing us to visit and enjoy your trailers with you.  It was a special afternoon!!

Oh wow...what fun that was for sure. The setting is perfect, and it looks like a gorgeous weekend. I think the white and mint green one is my favorite, but they are all adorable! Did you get to go in any of them?
