Like I said, the weather has been 70’s and sunny. I have been sunning myself daily, contributing to the reason my skin looks like a worn saddle…But I sure do love the sunshine!! McGyver has been lighting a campfire every evening, and we have been listening to our repertoire of I-tunes through our surround sound. (Making sure we don’t scare our neighbors with Aerosmith, The Stones, Uncle Cracker, Van Morrison and Meatloaf…!!
I have my bird feeders hung up and am getting a few Sparrows, a Titmouse or two, and some Chickadees. I have heard some Wrens (you can’t miss their songs), and also Mockingbirds, who copy every noise including barking dogs..They need to get their OWN act and take it on the road…
We have been walking (sometimes I ride my bike instead) the roads and one of them takes us down by the dam. This lake is down at least 15 ft. from the drought this year…I’m really glad to have my bike…but even on my trusty old lady bike, this terrain is lots of uphill and very few downhills…Makes for great cardio, but pumping up the hills is a little rough on the bad feet!
I love the twisty Cedar trees here, all knarly…The campground across the lake is vacant for some reason, but ours is filling up fast this weekend. Tomorrow we are going into Historical Old Georgetown and do some sightseeing. The “tour” will be followed by a stop at the local VFW to see if they will let us in for a beer and wine….They did 3 years ago when we were here last…But, if the local authorities give them “heads up to my law breaking activities this winter here in Texas. If that word has gotten out, we could be turned away at the door.!
You can see how far the lake is down behind those fisherman…The right hand photo is looking North down the cliff side from our camper…
The photo at right was taken from approximately the same place I took the header photo…except in the daylight….What a sunset we had that evening!! I want you to know that I used NO Picasa enhancements for that sunset photo…
I actually took a total of 5 photos of that sunset, and as it turns out, the very first photo I took was the best…but there really wasn’t a bad one in the bunch…Dumb luck!!
OK, so this has been a rather “dry” blog…Den and I have pretty much been vegging out here in the sunshine…Tomorrow we are going to be busy and I will be channeling history from the Georgetown Square and County Courthouse…. Get your pens and paper ready so you can take notes on the history lesson, and please try to limit the potty stops to ONE!!…Also…please refrain from yawning, burp noises, rude comments and fart sounds…THOSE OF YOU WHO THINK THAT’S FUNNY, YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE…AND SO DO I!!…THERE COULD BE A QUIZ!!!!
