We arrived Friday early evening and set up camp on our lakeside site.
You can tell that *gimp is very happy..
We had a family of ducks living on our 'Private Beach' but momma duck was very skittish and didn't want to be photographed.
No electricity, no cell signal.. glorious. We were serenaded by Bull Frogs at night and woken by the song birds in the morning. There is one song bird I'm still trying to identify. It sang a noted tune that was eerily similar to the mockingjay song from The Hunger Games. As I type this, I'm searching through libraries of song bird calls and my cats are going insane The call of the White-throated sparrow is close.. but it's not the one.
Saturday morning, we headed out canoeing with our fishing rods in tow. Mine of course is pink, this caused much joking, but I caught the most fish so .. jokes on them Turns out real fish like pink We saw deer, wild turkeys, and a splendid array of fish and birds.
Sunday morning we returned to the city, and while I was trying to avoid being steam-rolled by a crazy woman with a shopping cart at the grocery store, I was wondering why they refer to this.. as civilization.
Regardless, it was a needed unwinding and while it was short, it was blissful and I feel refreshed and recharged!
Do you every unplug from the grid? and if so, what do you do? If you don't, what do you do to relax??
