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…

Pictures for Pam, Day 203: Droplet-Covered Purple Bud

(+1 inset!) (I've produced another War & Peace tome but I wanted to make sure I had it all written down for myself! Hopefully you'll find it interesting!) The title of this blog could be: "Janet and Steve learn more about RV reservations and reality checks!" Heh… Last night we started making reservations for our next adventure! My-oh-my…how quickly itineraries change the moment you try to book a spot for a favored destination! Our PLAN was to drive from our home near Medford, Oregon, up to Sun River, Or…

Pictures for Pam, Day 189: PAM WILL BE BACK

(+3 insets) I began my Pictures for Pam project allllllll the way back on November 8, 2018. It seems like a million years ago. At the time I was in a very low place. Unhappy, confused about my life and my direction. I'd stopped taking pictures a long time before and had absolutely no creative energy whatsoever. One day I was stumbling around on the web and thought I'd glance at ipernity. Even that place depressed me deeply because it was failing badly and plans seemed eminent that it would be shut down…

Pictures for Pam, Day 201: Battery Point Lighthouse at Crescent City

(+3 insets!) (please view large for all the nice details!) Oh my it's been such a busy day! More than one of you mentioned in your comment that coming home from a long trip means a bit of work to get things back in order. You weren't kidding! We have had three RV trips now: two were 3-night/4 days and this last one was 13 nights/14 days. Getting settled after several days away didn't take much effort but two weeks had me working for hours yesterday and most of today! I'm nearly done now, whew!! Thankfully…

Pictures for Pam, Day 188: HFF: Back and Forth Fence with Flowers!

(+2 insets) Please note: Steve and I are away for a while in our RV and during this time I will have very little time, if any, to spend commenting. I will do my best to make up for my commenting when I get home! *BIG HUGS to all of you!* We are snug as a pair of bugs in a rug here at our campsite with rain coming down around us. The pitter-patter of droplets on the roof of our rig ebbs and flows as the showers come down. It's delightful! We both slept like rocks and I joined Steve for an hour of snuggling…

Pictures for Pam, Day 207: Curled Fronds in a Double Dedication with Marie-claire Gallet

(+2 insets) (view large for the best detail!) It was so pretty this morning with the sun shining brightly and so lovely to be outside as the world was waking up around me. Well, ok--to be honest, when I begin my walk at an early time like today it's 7:30am and the sunrise ship has already sailed away two hours before! But I'm sorry, 5:30am is officially "0-dark-hundred" and that is no time for a sane person to be getting up! At least, not in my mind, anyway! Heh...I'd consider myself a "morning person" no…

Pictures for Pam, Day 190: SSC: Selective Color

(+1 inset) (please view large for the pretty details/!) (By the way, I'm away on my trip, posting a picture every day but I don't have much time to comment...thank you so much for your visits, comments and stars, and also for understanding that I don't have the time I usually do to give you the attention you deserve in return!) Boy, it's been a busy couple of days! We've really been enjoying ourselves but it's kept me off the computer and away from working on my writing and photo processing. I will need…

Pictures for Pam, Day 193: Beach on Our Coos Bay Hike

(+2 insets!) Today was another travel day! After we had a delicious breakfast, we each did our parts to pack up the trailer. Both of us have lots of little things to do but it adds up to a lot of stuff if only one person was doing them. As a team, we are getting faster and more efficient at the break-down of the RV and the hookup of the trailer to the truck. It's fun to see how we're improving as time passes. The weather was perfectly dreadful with rain coming down in a constant torrent and wind gusting…

Pictures for Pam, Day 202: HFF: Rugged Coos Bay Coastline

We are still busy settling into our home after our last RV trip. I've been refilling supplies that were used, stripping the beds and washing all of the linens and so forth. Not too much left to do but I like to get it done and out of the way. This morning we also got a delivery...a replacement for the rinky-dink, cheapo plastic toilet that came with the RV! The new one is ceramic and normally-sized instead of feeling like something you might find at kindergarten. Steve was so excited that he had the old on…
