Pictures for Pam, Day 187: Droplets on Strawberry Blossom Next to Our RV!

Pictures for Pam, Day 187: Droplets on Strawberry Blossom Next to Our RV!
(+2 insets)

Steve and I are officially on our next RV adventure! We left at about 11:30 this morning and drove from our home in southern Oregon west and south into the top of California. Our destination, which was about 2.75 hours away, took us to a campground about half a mile away from a gorgeous redwood park called Jedediah Smith State Park. The drive was lovely, meandering through forests and little towns, often with rushing creeks and rivers in view.

Our campsite is very nice but nothing like our last one, which was a slice of heaven. This place is very pretty but the sites are close together and though there are trees and lots of grass and flowers everywhere, it's not a postcard-pretty place. I'll get a picture of our truck and RV in place at some point but didn't bother today.

Unlike our last campground though, we have full hookups and super internet too! So, no fancy views but we can do stuff online if we want to which is very nice.

Did I mention that it's raining? And that the forecast is for rain nearly every single day for the next week?! Say it ain't so? NO, actually! I'm happy to say that neither of us cares but the funny thing is that it was warm and sunny everywhere until TODAY. I found out a few days ago that the warm, sunny spring we were having would be ending just as we were supposed to leave on our trip. I was a bit worried that Steve would be unhappy, but instead he said, "Would you rather be stuck inside at home in the rain or would you like to be inside our RV somewhere wonderful in the rain?" YAY!! That's the right attitude!

So we're fully prepared to deal with inclement weather and that's just fine. It will mean droplets and fog and mist and all kinds of wonderful conditions that I adore photographing! We have games to play if we want and of course I will be working on my pictures, writing, reading, and if possible, visiting folks on ipernity too. It will be just fine!

Once we got ourselves set up it was time for dinner, which meant lovely steaks, sauteed-carmelized veggies and potato salad made with cauliflower instead of potatoes...SO DELICOUS!! Desert was mini key lime cheesecakes that we made last night for the trip...soooooo goooooood!!

After dinner I popped out with my camera and got lots of pictures of flowers and droplets on everything! What fun. I spent about fifteen minutes wandering around until the rain finally forced me back into the RV but I was pretty confident I had some winners to post...and I did!

The main picture today is a strawberry blossom bristling with droplets. There is a large meadow next to our RV that was filled with so many pretty flowers including lots of wild strawberries!

I have two insets as well: one of them is a wonderfully disheveled daisy that I nearly made my main picture because it's such fun. I really have been having some great luck with daisies on our trips. They are really wonderful subjects, aren't they? My other inset features droplets on a redwood sapling. I love the shape of the droplets, they remind me of crystal balls!

Pam, Steve and I had a nice time talking about you at one point along our drive. We hope that you are doing well and Steve sends his love and warm wishes! *BIG HUGS* from our new campsite! Stay tuned for new fun pictures in the coming days! :)

The blossom looks fantastic on the dark background............I love the water droplets and the fine detail you've captured. Just perfect.

I especially like the first PiP................that would easily have made a just a good main image. Awesome detail (of course) and I like the hint of pink in the petals.

More super water droplets in the 2nd PiP................and a beautiful lush green sapling. Spot-on composition and depth of field too.

Glad you arrived at your site safely and that you have all you need for a great stay. Don't let the rain bother you.............your skin is perfectly waterproof..!!

Fantastic! The droplets enchant the strawberry blossom. The daisy looks disheveled indeed. And the redwood sapling is balancing small droplets on its needles. The droplets look like tiny crystal balls.

What an absolutely stunning picture here Janet. I'm sorry that the weather is not hot and sunny, but as you say - the rain is giving you amazing pictures. I just adore water droplets on flowers etc. and these are amazing.

Way back here by way of returning the favor of your wonderful comments on my last photo and all the information you and Steve sent on sir filter systems. The smoke has blown away but we'd be stupid not to do something since it will most certainly be back. I think Steve's suggestion of a window air conditioner and a filter system makes the most sense.

This photo is wonderful with the water drops, but I especially like the "disheveled" daisy. It has more character than some people I know and the word "disheveled" is perfect. It's one of those words that sounds like its meaning. The water drops on the conifer are beautiful, too, but the daisy is the winner on my score sheet.

I'm back home. We discovered that the meetings we attended were really training sessions and that there was no need for us to sit through 16 hours of training. Nancy is still there - she'll enjoy every minute of the 16 hours, but that's a bit much for me and so the lady in charge (and she is really good) is going to do a couple-hour session for us separately.

I'm doing some cooking or whatever you call it. Just finished making a batch of hummus.
we have a recipe for beet-walnut hummus that is really good, but we made this with garbanzos and the other usual ingredients. Started some Tikka Masala as well. Had Singapore noodles last night and they were excellent.

Are rice noodles acceptable in your keto diet or do you avoid all grains? The noodles we did last night are, of course, rice noodles. We use a lot of them for Thai and Indian dishes but I don't know if they'd be acceptable to you. Life without noodles would be tough indeed, especially rice noodles which I prefer to pasta.

Have t o get going. Want to get my daily walk in especially since I noticed there are some new wildflowers blooming and I've set myself to photograph as many of them as I can. Gives me something to do, as if I need anything. It does, however, allow me to procrastinate on some jobs I'd rather not do.
