Monday, March 6
“You know, guys? We need to go somewhere. The sun is shining and here we are holed up in this trailer. Let’s go!”
Bridget, Reggie and I leave our camp at Ward Mountain and roll down into Ely on Highway 6. At the red light I stop and look to my left. There’s a statue of bears in front of a McDonald’s Restaurant.
I’ll skip over what the crew and I find to do in town. I’ll tell you about that in the next post. For now . . .
I want to write about what makes me giggle!
The crew and I cruise around Ely and East Ely in the Perfect Tow Vehicle.
What is going on over there? Oh! That man is feeding the ducks!
This will be fun!
“Bye, guys. I’ll be right back.”
A cacaphony of honks and quacks as ducks, geese, and pigeons rush toward the man at the fence. He dumps stale bread from a bag over the fence to the hungry crowd.
It’s fun trying to capture a composition of subjects who keep moving and don’t listen to instructions.
I’d rather giggle with delight while photographing ducks, geese, and pigeons on a cool April afternoon.
Maybe that bores the socks off of you. That’s okay. We’re different, that’s all.
It’s not necessary to have a lot of money to enjoy a full life. I’m sure you’ve heard that many times before. Maybe you thought, well, it certainly helps!
I look with an eye for the simpler things.
From this camp at Ward Mountain, ten miles southeast of Ely, we walk many different trails in the forest surrounding the campground. Reggie and Bridget love that! I do, too.
(BTW, 1-4 inches expected in Ely and 4-10 inches in the mountains this coming Thursday!)
Let’s see. . . other things we do . . .
We break into a spontaneous race on the campground loop.
We go into town and do laundry or I pick up the makings of a picnic.
I buy a few DVD movies at the thrift store and download Kindle books to my Paperwhite.
I write blog posts and “talk” with my readers.
We wander around the grounds of an old railroad depot and I go inside the museum. (More about that in the next post.)
Even so, we have a great time, because they are things we enjoy doing!
All of a sudden there’s much splashing and honking on the other side of the pond from where I’m standing.
A fun, little outing with those I love!
NOTE: I won’t reply to comments like I usually do. I’d rather have you do the “talking.” Maybe tell us about the rig you have or the rig you hope to have. Or how about telling us the way you travel and what you do for enjoyment whether traveling or not (And it’s okay if your fun costs money). Feel free to write about a topic of your choice!
