It’s 4:30 PM and I arrived at
However, the campground is not what I expected, aesthetically-speaking. Thanks to the tornado that swept across the northern section of the state this past April. Untold numbers of trees were lost and, sadly, the campground looks like a plucked chicken.
The campground office has photos of the devastation and it was, well, devastating. They are rebuilding but how do you replace those old trees? You can’t.
Night will come in a few hours and I am positioned to see the sunset over the lake out my front window, feet propped on the sofa. None too shabby! In fact, the sun has finally won the battle over the clouds so there should be some serious pastels. Isn’t it grand when Nature co-operates?
There’s a fisherman on the pier about 100 feet away from my campsite and a heron even closer. They have a shared purpose, I suppose. Wonder who will catch his dinner first? Thanks to my tinted windows all around neither of them can watch me watch them. I love that!
My neighbors have this cute little Scamp. I find those little fiberglass eggs irresistible! This one is older but well-cared for.
I’m just fine with kicking back tonight because I’m not exactly in adventure-mode. I’m feeling a little lonely after leaving Charlotte and Carla. I wish they were here so we could continue our time together. I’m also really missing my mom & dad after seeing (and, shockingly, hearing them) on the DVD last night.
I’m not sorry to be heading home tomorrow. I do miss John and Doris so!
But when I get home, I'll be dreaming of heading out again.
