Well today started with a flurry of activity. I’ve been trying to keep myself busy and have seemed to find any number of little projects to occupy my time.
I love our morning walk at dawn around the campground perimeter with a stop at the lake. There’s something about looking over the dock when the sun is coming up of the trees that just takes the chill out of a cold morning. I spotted this play of light and shadow through the trees bordering the lake. I’m still waiting to spot that alligator.
I cooked Lola a new batch of her gourmet dog food fit for the finest French restaurant, waterlessly washed (if that is such a word – “washed the RV without water using a dry wash compound”), finished replacing the broken cabinet door, cleaned and vacuumed the inside of the RV, did some photography client work, put in a load of laundry. (boy this is really sounding like the life of an exotic traveler).
Lola was antsy around 2, so we headed out to the dog park looking for some buddies for her to play with. I ran into a new friend Bill, a younger Canadian chap who’s a full timer, living in his travel trailer working for 7 months and heading south for 5 months in the winter. I have a new definition of younger since we began our journey after running into campers who have 60 year old children. They’re still going strong. Bill and I chatted for a while, the sun was getting hot out on the road and so we made a plan to continue our conversation in the hot tub.
There’s a little chill in the air today but short of freezing getting in an out, it was a nice diversion before plopping next to the RV here under the awning and doing some writing and dreaming about life in general and more immediately, the dinner menu. I’m thinking beans and greens.
