Sunshine! What a difference from yesterday!
To the south of this bay is a magnificent beach.
Before walking through the rocks to the beach, we come upon this duck. Bridget and Spike are so excited I can hardly stop them long enough for this photo. I don’t know what it is with me and ducks lately . . . Or maybe this is a goose? Gosh, I should know the difference. That’s kindergarten material . . . first grade at the latest.
I walk Bridget and Spike toward the surf. Of course, they’re both clueless, having little experience with ocean waves. I get the camera ready to catch them scooting away from water that takes them by surprise. Spike doesn’t hurry. Hey, what’s a little water, he says.
Well, wasn’t that exciting.
Some of you may be thinking . . . Gee, enough with the photos! Get back to telling stories! Where’s the info on RVing? Is this blog going to be an endless travelogue? I want to learn about boondocking! Golly, how many waves do we have to look at, for crying out loud!
It won’t be long before we camp in southern California and Arizona in order to keep warm through the winter. We won’t move around much.
I’ll have time to write stories about the adventures of the bone-headed boondockers, one human and two canine! There surely will be exciting stories about trips to the grocery store, tense moments over dumping the waste tanks, and funny anecdotes about the dumb things I do. No shortage of material for the latter!
At the far end of the beach I let Bridget and Spike run around loose. They aren’t bounding, sprinting, jumping kind of dogs, so it doesn’t make much difference if they are on-leash or off. We walk together like people do. I enjoy their company throughout every day, wherever we may be.
This next vessel is in fine shape.
Tomorrow we leave Mora Campground, Rialto Beach, and La Push to move southward. The weather is in charge of our days. No matter. It can be stormy or calm, drizzly dark or sunshiny bright — I love, absolutely love, the vagabond life!
