Camping Trip

Gary surprised me by suggesting we go camping this past Thursday thru Saturday. I guess he had some “comp” days built up from being gone 16 days in Europe. It is almost too hot to go camping by now, but the weather did cooperate and it was quite comfortable except in the late afternoons.

Rachel joined us on Friday after she got off work. We did a lot of birding and walking and a little cooking out and sleeping. In our old age, camping isn’t what it used to be. Sure, we sleep in a tent, but we also brought along an electric fan to keep us cool, and an electric light, and an electric kettle. We don’t rough it as much as in our younger days, but hey, who cares? It still feels good to be outside and enjoy the beautiful world.

And I got a lifer: Chuck-will’s Widow.  We didn’t see this bird as it is nocturnal, but we heard it over and over and over.

Here is another Google Photo album so you can see for yourself:
