The North Migration continues

Our official migration to the Great White North is underway.  Today we plan to put another hundred miles or so behind us.  We don't want to get in a big hurry because we don't want to catch up to any cold weather.  So today we will head for Las Vegas.  This will be the 7th trip to Las Vegas for Sue and I and we hardly ever gamble.  The lights of the strip tend to draw you in just like the mountains do, or a bonfire does.  We love to visit there.

Another Day in Paradise

Because we are in such a great spot, we have no urge to go anywhere.  I know it makes for a boring story, but we always look at each other and say, "what do you want to do today?"  And the answer seems to be to sit on the shore and enjoy the sun and nature.  I can't apologize for that, because it is just not wrong.   For example, this morning as I was preparing my coffee, this is what floated by.
Six Canadian Geese!!!They were quite content to just hang around the shore and look for handouts.

Dave and Cheryl came to Visit

When I woke up this morning I was surprised to see Sue dressed and ready to head out the door for a kayak ride.  I am usually the first one up so this was a change of tradition.  It was a beautiful morning for a nice paddle around the lake.  She was gone for about an hour.

After Sues voyage, Lessie decided to take the kayak for a little spin.  Lessie had never been in a kayak before but she caught on real quick.  She was soon whizzing up and down along the beach.

Another Project and Some Fun

Another successful Happy Hour this morning.  We talked for a long time and never came to one conclusion.  That is sort of how it goes when you are retired with nothing to do.   It wasn't long and it was time for lunch.

A Quiet Stroll in the Desert

Although it has been quite breezy and cool here, this is sure a beautiful area to spend some time.  This spot is a 7 day camping spot, but because there are not a lot of people here, we are going to stay until Friday which will be 10 days.  If people start to move in and need spots we will move on.
Charlie and I went for a nice walk this morning up into the hills.  The weather is great for walks in that it in neither too hot nor too cold.  I should be doing way more walking than I do.  This nice wash goes straight up toward the hills from our campsite.  That's us under tree #2.
