Yesterday we moved to a better campsite at Delmoe Lake!
The Best Little Trailer is in the shade and the Perfect Tow Vehicle is in the sun. It’s quieter here than at the other site. I like the soft, soothing sound of wind brushing through pine boughs overhead. The lake can be seen from inside the BLT and from the picnic table.
A path goes from the campsite down to the beach.
I take the chair out onto the beach so I can sit and watch the ducks and wading birds through my monocular. Also I can keep an eye on Bridget and Spike as they wander around on the sand.
That’s what I ask myself. We’ve come so far and I have no doubt that grander places to camp and explore are not a long way from here. However, I’m content where we are now. I feel like I’m on a vacation that can last as long as I wish. We will leave soon, but I’m not in a hurry to go.
I like to read my kindle books sitting right here.
The lake level continues to drop.
Of course, that means . . . more mud! If you take a close look at the first photo, you’ll see that Spike has his black boots on. After I took that photo, I ran up the path to intercept him before he jumped into the BLT and onto the bed. If I can keep him outside for a few minutes, the mud dries and falls off.
You know Spike has to go back for more!
She wouldn’t dream of stepping in mud!
This morning Bridget took off after a chipmunk, chasing it up a tree. Apparently she didn’t learn from The Oregon Chipmunk Incident when she injured her leg. I do remember the worry and indecision about whether to put her under the knife. I’m glad I didn’t opt for surgery.
Remember this photo?
It was taken September 5, 2012, when the crew and I spent the day exploring Florence, Oregon. People thought I was playing favorites by pushing Bridget in a stroller while Spike had to walk! That stroller was instrumental to her healing.
The registrations for the PTV and BLT are due this month.
When we come off this mountain, I need to drop a check in the mail to the Pennington County Treasurer in South Dakota in the amount of $138.50. The registrations will go to my mail forwarding/legal residency company, America’s Mailbox, and then I’ll have them send the registrations with sticker to a post office . . . wherever we may be.
Hmm . . . “wherever we may be.” I don’t know where “wherever” is!
