Lazy Saturday

It was so nice to open the shades this morning and see blue sky.   Its been overcast  way too long for our tastes.     Under our campsite's canopy of trees the light and shadow play is mesmerizing.   Birds flit over head and squirrels chase each other up and down the twisted trunks.   Its tempting to just sit here and absorb the peaceful surroundings.

The weather "guessers" are predicting rain and cold for the remainder of our stay here, so after lunch we roused ourselves, strolled over to the ocean beach and proceeded to absorb the peaceful surroundings there.    Tough life, isn't it?

We watched the waves, the shorebirds, the pelican formations.   We read (he's almost done Steve) and dozed.

When the shadows grew long, we packed up and shuffled back to Beluga for cocktails and pizza.

Dave wonders how he ever had the time or energy to work, back in the day.....We've been talking about this subject a fair bit lately because last week he was approached by someone and asked  if he would be interested in starting a new company as an adjunct to their existing one.  It didn't take him more than a second to say no to the offer.   This life is just too good and undemanding.   Been there, done that he says.   Its too nice to be able to do what one wants, when one wants with no pressure.    Works for me too!

Tonight we walked to the back of the campground for a beautiful sunset over the river.  Since its been so cloudy lately I was beginning to wonder if I'd ever see a good sunset again.  I've been jealous of Nina's (Wheeling it) desert sunset extravaganzas...


  1. I imagine it would feel good to be asked about a new company but feel better to be in a position to say "no" as well. After all, what would you do now, Suzi, without a daily flower pilferer, David's dog salon, Dave's automotive and repair shop, Dave's woodworking shop, not to mention, the Nascar Couch guy!

  2. It is so good to hear someone is having warm weather. Here in Houston it has been raining for two days straight. The temps are unseasonably cold.

  3. Looks like you are in the warm area of the country. We had a chilly visit in Atlanta this year. It was 31 when we pulled out this morning. John had to get ice off the slide toppers this morning from the rain the other day. Brrrr!

    Good you finally got some blue sky:) Beautiful sunset!

  4. You are having such a good life! with sunshine to boot. Although it did not rain today as they forecasted it was really really cold here in GA.
    Keep on reading Dave and Steve will send you more!
    Beautiful sunset!

  5. Wait, Dave is done! Steve just got a notification that the loan book has been returned.
