8:40am Monday, April 11
Well, we arrived safely to Kerr Lake
and had our choice of all but two of the spaces in this campground.
From what I tell in the area where we are, there is just one other
camper plus a camp host who are both waaaaaaay far away. The camp
host said all the weekenders left right before we arrived. We are
parked on a “point” which juts out into the lake and we are at the
tip right at the edge of the water with views nearly all around us.
Wow. We had a beautiful sunset but it went down faster than I
realized and barely missed it before it went below the horizon. We
enjoyed sitting by the water last night at our fire pit listening to the night sounds.
This morning I got up with a bit of fog
and headed out for some pictures wanting to catch the sunrise. But
it's overcast so mostly got lake pictures. There are a few ducks
which float by and a crane who visits occasionally. This has to be a
scene right out of heaven.
There's no internet in this campground
so will send this along later when we get access.
8:35am Tuesday, April 12Still having a great time here at the
lake. Sleeping like a log and enjoying the sunrises and sunsets.
I've been able to read and now made it to the middle of the first of
my three books I packed. We've ridden our bikes/walked all over the
campground, enjoyed good food, played games, listened to the radio,
watched TV. We had waffles for breakfast. Yum Well, just heard it
sprinkling and looked out – it's pittering and pattering on the
roof. Pleasant sounds. Would be nice sleeping sounds, but I already
had my 8. Not sure what we're doing today – were thinking of
driving into the nearest town and finding some free internet to see
if I can get this posted and read/write a few emails. Now, if this
sprinkling will stop...if not, we'll head out to the nearest “town”
and find some dry excitement. Maybe it won't last long, but will be
a refreshing morning shower which will start yet another relaxing day
at the lake.
I'm at the library now - which isn't open until noon, but I got wireless outside in the parking lot. I've read some emails, answered a few and feeling connected to friends and family. Now, it's nearly time to find a good restaurant in this town before we head back to the campground. I'll try to get on another day - in the meantime I'll try to love, laugh, and enjoy life.11am: It's dry and sunny and warm in the 70's. Life is good. I'll post pictures when I return.
