Our Casita at Pine Island Campground

Our Casita at Pine Island Campground

Today is a glorious, breezy, sunshiny day with a high in the low 80’s. Weather like this makes us high, too! πŸ™‚

There are many hugepines here.  Unfortunately, they show evidence of pine bark beetle damage.  I had Ron pose in front of one for scale.

Sunny is sleeping hard enough now that if we leave the trailer when he is napping, we can get nice walks in before he wakes up. That’s another good news, bad news situation. We love being able to get out for walks together, but are sad that he sleeps like the old dog that he is.

For several days rowing teams have been practicing for a competition (we suppose). There are 4 long boats with several rowers each, accompanied be an instructor in a motor boat with a bullhorn that sounds like a Parris Island drill instructor! It’s been fun to watch.

This afternoon the sun is sparkling on the lake like a million diamonds. The breeze is steady and cool — keeping the 83 degrees from feeling hot. It couldn’t possibly be more perfect.

I’m still phone blogging and editing my photos on the phone, so I have no idea how they look on a screen. Hope you can enjoy them.

p.s. I had a whole lot of photos to post, but my signal has dropped to 1x, so I can’t upload more.

Bummer!Β  πŸ™‚

  2. I want to camp next to water this summer. going to get things moving towards leaving. Vet, Dr; apt for me and what ever else needs taking care of. Must get to the mountains this year I keep hearing them call my name. haha
    Your pictures look great


    • I loved the pictures you used to post from the mountains. And I’m looking foward to when you can go whenever and wherever you want to.

      There’s a cute, basic Scamp parked across the boat launch from us. I thought of you when I saw it.

    Your posts are coming through perfectly! Looks like a beautiful spot where you are camping. Have fun!


    • Thanks, Diane!

      I still marvel that I can hold a computer in the palm of my hand–and that this phone can do more than my first PC could.

    Your photos are looking great! I enjoy your blog(s). Did you mention that you were going to buy a larger travel trailer?


    • Hi, Debbie. Good to “meet” you!

      I would prefer to keep the Casita but Ron is telling everyone we need a bigger rig. I talked with him about it last night and said I’d like to keep camping in the Casita and save for a bigger rig if it’s necessary.

      However, since I also eventually want to get a small home base in Florida, we might just stick with the Casita. I really love it.


  5. Love that Pine Island Campsite. Beautiful!


  6. What a gorgeous place!! That water looks so relaxing πŸ™‚

    Your blog posts look fine. I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. Like Sunny, our Tanya sleeps soundly and we get to have some walks to ourselves. It’s bittersweet though, when I remember her boundless enthusiasm on our walks two years ago. Now it’s just a quick stroll to do her business and maybe sniff a few spots.
