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".

A Little of this and Little of that…and A Merry Christmas

It has been a few weeks since our last outing which says there hasn’t been a lot going on in the camping part of our lives lately…but that is soon to be changing as we have a road trip planned after the first of the year.

We have kind of been tweaking our egg a bit since our last outing.  We have added a Paha Que screen room with the rain fly for more outdoor room which we are anxious to use.  It is the 10x10 size and it will add so much more protected room.


On a funnier note, we have gone from a full bed to twin bed and back and forth, but, for now, have decided on the full bed sleeping arrangement.  So many choices, I don’t know what to do.  When we purchased the egg from the previous owner, they had modified it to accommodate a wider twin bed and had the foam/memory foam to go with it.  Since then, we bought the Spa Sensations full size mattress and now have the ability to have either sleeping arrangement.  As Casita owners know, you can even have king bed sleeping arrangements.  We have 2 Shihtzus that travel with us and one is 16 years old and feels she has to sleep with us….

On another good note, our son is engaged and has set the wedding for a spring time date…actual day coming later.  We are excited for him and happy for her.  Raegan is a really nice young lady and blends so well in our family.


We are all ready for Christmas and have enjoyed getting the house decorated and seeing all the colors of Christmas.





Gerri and I want to wish all of you and your families a very Merry Christmas.  May we always remember the true purpose of the season.
