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".

We Have a Launch!!

Today is Sunday at FDR State Park. This is the day, as Firedude has said, the great Hoover comes to the campground and sucks out the campers. We had a good group this weekend. The campground was about 2/3 full and everyone seemed to enjoy the great weather we had. Fall is finally in the air. We actually turned on our heat pump this morning to take the chill off the motorhome and it felt good. Quite a change from the dry, 100 degree weather we have been having most of the month of August. Saturday evening we had a campfire but the wood was really wet and so there wasn't much warmth but it was still nice.

Today we launched the Sea Eagle!! We actually have had the Sea Eagle for a week and haven't had a chance to get her in the water. We bought the Fisherman's Dream- SE8. We can do most anything we would want to do with this boat. It is light and easy to inflate. I am adding pics of Mike inflating the boat and then pics of us enjoying our first ride. It was a really wonderful day with just enough breeze to make it perfect. We were out for about 45 minutes. We just wanted to get used to the process of inflating and deflating, transporting and enjoying. The enjoying was easy. This is the first time we have viewed FDR from the ducks point of view. I must say it was just as pretty from the water as from the shore. Take a look!
