Mountains on the east, mountains on the west. They seem to wrap themselves all around us. We’re down at the lakeside and it’s a safe feeling. It’s a comforting feeling.
In the morning, the sun has to climb above those mountains before we feel it’s warmth.
Opening the door to a sunny morning is not unconventional. Being at a site with very, very few other people … in summer … well that is unconventional. Atypical. Unusual. Odd.
That’s us, Traveling Tortuga, off in the distance (right side, below).
This is a rare and unique opportunity! The warmth of a summer afternoon, the cool breezes in the morning and evening, the tranquility of a lightly used campground – we may get some work done, and have some refreshing time too.
Mornings look like this …
… and the sun creeps up from the east …
… and the evening sun settles in the west early …
… making way for a cool evening under the stars.
Conventional activities … seemingly uncommon times. Hmmm.
