Jim - who is a part-time traveler with summer and winter home bases in South Dakota, New Mexico and Colorado. Talk about having the best of all worlds! Jim, I need to catch up on some of your past posts, but I'm assuming the part-time travel is during the winter months? Thanks for following along with me and Katie on our adventures!
John Rogers - who is enjoying life in a VW bus. It looks like John is staying in Truth or Consequences, NM for now. I have heard and read a lot about that area, and will certainly stop in TorC one of these days to see what it's about. Thanks, John, for following our full-time travels!
I love waking up in a new place. Back in the day when I had a house, I moved every few years, and loved the first few weeks in the new house the best. Now I get to have that experience pretty often.
I've hung both my seed feeders, but not the hummer feeders, and I just saw a hummingbird come up to the seed feeder to examine it. I guess the hummingbird feeders are coming out.
Here's a squirrel from yesterday - trying to get the seed from the bird feeder:
When he climbed down the tree, he had his pouches full of seed.
A little different entry strategy:
He was fun to watch, but after he left the second time, I switched the feeders so this one is higher, and away from the tree a bit more. We'll see how that works. I don't mind him eating the seed, no birds have found the feeders yet, but he's going to work for it.
It's beautiful here at Bluewater Lake State Park today. The lake is calm, there are a few boats below in the water, but they must be far enough away to keep the noise from us, because I've hardly heard a boat yet. There are fluffy while clouds moving in, and today so far we've seen a lizard and lots of birds.
I finally got a good shot of a large bird overhead:
It's breezy now, I love the sound of the breeze going through the trees. That's a sound I haven't heard in a while. I can hear the wind, but The Palms isn't rocking. On the desert or blacktopping it, I usually didn't hear wind, I was aware of it when The Palms started rocking, and Katie got those big eyes.
We did fine last night with our solar, parked under the tree. I was thinking, though, if I want to get more input from the sun, all I have to do is drive forward a few yards and the whole rig will be in the sun the second half of the day. But so far, so good.
We had a family set up camp late yesterday afternoon in the reserved site above and in front of us. I can see the site from the front window. They set things up, later I went to bed, and when I woke up the tent, car and people were gone. That was hardly worth setting up the tent!
Today I see there is another couple in that campsite, just now setting up. I don't see a rig, so they must be tent campers. They are so quiet, I didn't even hear them driving into the site.
There was a beautiful sunset last night, the only thing that would make it prettier would be some clouds. We have clouds in the sky today, so I'm hoping tonight's sunset will be spectacular.
From Me and Katie, have a great Friday, everyone! :)
