Pictures for Pam, Day 165: Steve is Happy with this View :)

Pictures for Pam, Day 165: Steve is Happy with this View :) 

(+4 insets!)

Sun shining into my cozy little nest woke me up at 6:30am this morning. Pulling out my earplugs, the world was filled with the songs of waking birds in the trees and geese in the distance. It was so fabulous! (see my first inset!)

I went up front to snuggle with Steve for about 15 minutes--we both slept very comfortably and felt great! Then we got up to the sound of Pumpkin peeping happily at us. As for our showers, we discovered that if we put her into her plexiglass travel cage, it sits perfectly on the toilet seat while each of us showers…perfect! Pumpkin adores the sound of splashing water so this way she can be in the bathroom with us, whistling and carrying on like the silly girl she is. :)

Because we'd done a "trial run" of staying in our RV on our property, there were absolutely no problems with taking showers and getting our day started…how awesome is that?! :)

Once Steve had dressed, we set Pumpkin up in her cage and took Molly out on her leash and I took my Sony with me to get some early morning pictures. What a lovely day it was!! Wisps of clouds dotted the bright blue sky and the rippling water twinkled with sun shining on it…so pretty!!

I walked out onto the floating dock down to the far end and sat down to soak up the atmosphere. The singing of the birds in the trees was so wonderful to hear. I could see the thick marsh not far off that was a din of birds making all variety of noises. It sounded like an over-booked convention and I looked forward to getting a closer look either today or tomorrow in a canoe. For now, I took pictures of a coot which was swimming around in the reeds, a pair of mallards and some too-far-away ducks I'd never seen before. Got a few pictures of grebes too. None of the birds were really close enough though. I'll cross my fingers for better pictures at some point during our stay. (my last inset shows where I sat!)

(By the way, last night I got some really nice pictures of some Brewer's Blackbirds and I hope to get those processed and posted at some point. There is a flock that lives at the resort so getting pictures is a simple thing.)

It was the perfect temperature to just sit and enjoy this amazing place…how fortunate we were to have this chance to stay at Upper Klamath Lake! What a pleasure. After enjoying the lovely solitude and beauty for a while, I made my way back to our home away from home and at noon we had a brunch of eggs and sausage with avocado on the side. YUM!

Steve is now performing a bit of minor repair to Pumpkin's small hiking cage. We'll take her with us on a little walk along the shoreline while Molly guards the homestead. :) We won't go too far but it's sure to be great fun. :)

We just got back from our walk! There was no trail along the shore…much too rocky…but there was a road which followed the lake and there are no cars so it was peaceful and beautiful. We wandered for about a mile or so and stopped at a pretty resort where we all enjoyed some snacks at a picnic table overlooking the lake and its little marina. Pumpkin had a lovely time with us and enjoyed the attention of some folks who came by, totally amazed that we took our parrot with us in a hiking cage! :) When we told them that she's been to Yosemite and loves Tuolomne Meadows and the famous Mist Trail they were properly impressed! :) Our girl's been around and she loves it! :)

Well, the barbeque is heating up and we'll be having steak for dinner so it's time to close this report for now! :)

My main picture is a view down one side of the RV park's dock with Steve at the end, hands behind his back, appreciating the view. I love this picture because it shows the amazing view of the lake, the dock, and Steve, who was largely responsible for making this dream come true for us. He is content and happy. Everything has worked out perfectly. We did it right. We took our time. This is our reward. How cool is that? :)

I'm including a number of insets:
PiP #1: My view as I peeked out the window of my "nest" this morning! (This image is poor quality but the view isn't! :D)
PiP #2: A beautiful view just a few feet from our RV out onto the lake first thing this morning!
PiP #3: A pretty view of the left-side dock with a framing of trees
PiP #4: This is where I sat at the end of the dock this morning, drinking in the beauty and serenity of this place. Isn't it amazing? :)

Pam, I am sending my happiest wishes your way! And thank you so much for your lovely comments about my trip so far! We're having a lovely time! *BIG HUGS*

This is a really well composed and beautiful image Janet. The light is really special and the blue sky and lovely cloud formations are wonderful. The orange hull of the canoe in the foreground anchors the shot well and draws the eye straight in and along the dock.

I love that you got your husband in the shot................I think having just one person there really enhances the feeling of peace and tranquility!

Great stuff in the PiP collection as always..............I particularly like the 3rd one for the silhouetted tree branches and the last one for the sunburst!

Happy Days..!!

Oh it looks absolutely gorgeous there Janet and I'm so glad that you and Steve have at last managed to go on holiday in your RV and Molly and Pumpkin being with you too. I've never heard of anyone taking their parrot on holiday with them neither - let alone having a hiking cage!!! You'll have to take a picture of it - with Pumpkin in it if poss - so I can understand how she can go hiking with you two. The pictures of the lake are super - the weather is very kind to you and the docks with the canoes by them look great - no doubt you are going to go canoeing on there so I look forward to more pics. Just have a wonderful time together.

... well done ... the sense of huge landscape is balanced by receding dock, with "pop" of color and dramatic lonely figure ...
