Summertime, and the livin’ is easy …

It’s been a long and lazy summer … interspersed with frenzies of work (is frenzies a word?).  Everyone camps in the summer, but with a little effort ya’all can minimize the crowds and laze the summer away.  We started just before Memorial Day …

It looks like summer camping ...

… at Fort Spokane, along the Lake Roosevelt NRA.  This is where the Spokane River joins the mighty Columbia, an area full of trails, old buildings and many exhibits.

... but we came a few days early, and no-one is here yet!

Every campsite is reserved for the holiday, and we’ll be long gone by then! Now is the time to relax and enjoy God’s creation, hike around and of course, eat.

Toasted bagel, hot honey tea, a good book and a great view.

The lake just keeps rollin' along.

The Columbia River has been a resource for people for many years … once a place of rich fisheries, and now a source of power for millions.  Even though the area has changed radically, it remains a place of beauty and reflection.  And a great place to camp and relax.

... and a fine place to dine on garden fresh salad and sausages.

We’ve passed the summer in relative simplicity.  We’ve got some pictures and places to share.  Summertime has been a time of easy livin’.  Come back and see some more tomorrow!
