Can't you just see the garbage flying all over the place - what a mess that would be! But, no... to the rescue come three seasonal workers and a Bobcat:
|The right container is already squished down.|
|The Bobcat REARS UP on it's hing legs, I mean rear wheels, packing down the second container.|
|WaaLaa! Lots of room for departing campers to fill.|
My grand kids would have loved watching this. Especially when the Bobcat reared up on it's back wheels and PUSHED down that trash. Pretty good stuff for kids and Grammys to watch.
Meanwhile, Katie was working hard, too.
We are parked in the perfect direction for Katie to take advantage of the morning sun coming through the window. This is the view out the couch window. We see the lake through the front windshield, and out my dinette window I can see the hills and dry lake bed. I was happy about the lake bed view, thinking I'd see the herd of horses grazing out there, but so far, no horses. I've see a few hoof prints in the dust and more than a few horse "piles," but no horses yet.
The other day I was craving Nachos and had all the ingredients - see Andy, that's why my fridge is so FULL - and they were delicious.
|Homemade Nachos - looks good enough to eat, and I did!|
I like home made so much better than the ones I get at restaurants. This time I got the corn chips that are in a little cup. Added re-fried beans, shredded cheese, microwaved it a bit to warm things up, then added homemade guacamole, sour cream and chopped tomatoes. Ummmm, they were so good. I think I'll have them again for lunch today. :)
Katie likes chasing the lizards here, I got a good shot of one that she didn't see first:
Looks a little like a petroglyph if you squint your eyes, doesn't it?
The weekend, as usual, has been crowded, tons of rigs and tents lined up around the lake shore. There were really a lot of boats this weekend. The early birds are already gone, and right now, at noon, more people are starting to pack up and leave. Soon there will only be a few left, the ones who will stay all week at the edge of the lake.
So far the weekenders seem to be well behaved and quiet. Except last night, something was going on at the boat launch. Katie heard them and barked and woke me up. It was in the middle of the night, and sounded like someone was trying to pull their boat on the concrete. I looked out the window and could see flashlights and headlights at the launch. Scrapping and flashlights and headlights and talking went on for quite a while. The launch is far enough away that I can see it, but not hear it, so I don't know what was going on - I could hardly hear the voices, but figured someone's boat missed the trailer and was being dragged along the concrete. That's what it sounded like. Hopefully no damage was done, but I kind of doubt that.
As far as we are concerned, all is well at Bluewater Lake, and Katie and I are getting very lazy.
