I cleaned out the truck today and repacked it in a way that makes more sense. It is hard to believe I have already been a fulltimer over a week and now in the same spot for one week. I really needed the rest and the time to finish the last of the house details.
Next, I will be getting my camp packed and ready to head over to the Portland Oregon area for a glamping weekend next weekend with girl pals and lots of vintage trailers. I will be sure to take lots of pics to post so you can see all the fun trailers.
I also tried to replace some window screens. The door screen went pretty well but I was able to get it off the door frame and lay it on the table. It has one little oops but I am resolved to not look at it too closely. I MUST give up perfect. Good enough is certainly good enough.
What a shame, I ran out of screening material before I could tackle 2 more of the tough windows with the slatted windows. I guess I will have to save all that fun for another day.
A Little Play
I sat for the longest time watching hummingbirds zip to and fro to my feeder. I lot of pictures but this was the best of the lot.
Boy did the Kitties want to get a close and personal look at those little cuties
Later on I took a little drive up the road to a nearby dam.
Dams on rivers is common in the Northwest. Most river
Not a spectacular dam but I had fun playing peek-a-boo with this osprey that was sitting on a nest.
Eagles were soaring.... they were way to fast for me. I have lots of pictures of clouds with out any eagles... They were long gone.
I rewarded myself with a little nap while it rained a bit.
Then A hard hike....
I went in search of the petroglyphs that I had heard were in the area.
They were preserved for hundreds of years and then vandals attempt to destroy a part of history that so few are privileged to see. So senseless!! I will never understand.
I'm not sure what gets into me when I get on a hike The easy little hike turned into a grueling straight up a mountain....I start hiking and something mysterious happens. The nice little view isn't enough, I have to keep going... pushing until there is no where else to go or I'm exhausted. Then I still WANT to go farther. My leg held up pretty well. Hard to believe I was hobbling just a short time ago.
Here is the view from my camp to the hill I climbed When I was a kid I spent many Saturdays hiking the hills near my house. It seems so much easier then.

Other nearby rock formations...
I hope you have a life jacket.... tomorrow is the maiden voyage of my kayak.
