What a wonderful relaxing week we had after spending Mother's Day driving down Hwy 85 through rain and a great deal of traffic. I wanted to know why all these folks were on the road instead of out to dinner with Mom. The rain slowed down after we arrived and our perfect camp site overlooked the lake. We had a private sandy beach and swam, floated, read books and kayaked. Several turtles were spotted along with ducks, geese, a gazillion boats, and two Kingfisher birds. I brought some old oil paints and began applying oil to canvas with a knife. Painting and poetry mingled with campfires, sunsets and sunrises out on the lake complete with fresh "press-pot" coffee and a donut...what fun! Actually, just about perfect, tan included.
