“Reggie! GET OFFA’ ME!”
Usually I wake up eager to greet the morning. There are days, however, when I like to loll in bed, allowing time for my body and mind to transition from sleep to wakefulness. You know that delicious feeling when the bed is warm and comfy and the mind is drifting effortlessly with no sense of time. That’s how I’m luxuriating this morning.
The crew has a different plan for me.
Bridget turns on her signature whine which consists of single, low-volume syllables repeated incessantly. A relentless grinding of one’s nerves. A variation of Chinese water torture.
Reggie’s methods are physical.
He jumps on my shoulder (I’m a side sleeper), puts his nose in my ear and growls and huffs and puffs. He alternates between digging into my shoulder and vigorously back-kicking into my left kidney.
“All right! All right! I’m getting up! Gee, can’t ever sleep late with you two . . . .”
I sit up and look out the window.
“Oh, look at that! Where’s my camera!”
I leap out of bed and fly out the door of the Best Little Trailer.
The rising sun has transformed the grey mountains!
But rather than be the star of the show, the sun highlights the full moon suspended above mountains turned to copper. This is Colorado?
Wow! What a surprise!
Whereas seconds before I was reluctant to lift my head off the pillow, now I sprinting around the field by our camp with delight, having a great ol’ time, marveling at the photo opportunities presented to me this morning.
A surprise gift!
It’s fun seeing how many ways I can create a composition with the elements of full moon, sky, mountains, and trees.
Bridget and Reggie bark at the screen door . . .
As if they’re saying, “Hey, what about us? Did you forget about us?”
“Okay, I’ll let you out!” I run to the door. Bridget hops down the step as I dash inside and grab Reggie’s suit. Quickly I snap it on him and clip him to the tether.
This is what I love about full-timing and camping in natural surroundings — the surprises!
Every day brings new gifts!
I take scads of photos. Later I choose a few to post because I’m unable to pick just one.
How about you make that decision?
Which photo appeals to you?
I’ve numbered them to make it easy. Join us in comments with your choice. It also would be fun to share . . . .
What surprises have made camping fun for you?
Next post I’ll get back to talking about RV stuff and the mundane tasks with the crew, including the good and the not-so-good of daily vagabond living.
“Well, that was fun. C’mon, crew. Who wants breakfast?”
