Over a Month, So Far So Good!

It has been a little over a month that we have last stayed in the apartment. We have been in the travel trailer exclusively since about April 15th. So far so good. Max and I are still on speaking terms. :>)

We will officially turn in the apartment keys next week before Memorial weekend. We have all of the household stuff sold and have just a few totes of things to get moved into the new Rv when it gets here. The only thing we need to sell now is the car and the travel trailer.

We almost had the travel trailer sold. There is a guy that wants it but he also wants the lot it is sitting on at the campground. Unfortunately there is a waiting list for seasonal sites here at the campground and he can not have the site. If we give up the site, it has to go to the next person on the waiting list. Plus there may not be another site available for us with the new rig. So we will just have to keep this site and put the new rig on it and sell the travel trailer to someone that wants to take it somewhere else. Everything else has fallen into place, selling this trailer will too.

We had a couple of nice day’s and were able to get outside more. I took the new digital camera out for some much needed practice.

I went out and scouted around the lake. It did not take me very long to find this female Redwing Blackbird. Actually she found me! I must have gotten close to her nest and she would come out and dive bomb me and try to get me to leave the area.Fem_Red


Then the male Redwing Blackbird came and tried to distract me away from the area. The Redwing Blackbirds are the predominate birds around here.


Here he is bringing breakfast back to the nest.


Along the lake shore a Green Heron came in and started looking for food.



There is a lot to learn using this camera, and hopefully my skills will improve. I also need to be more stealthy in my approach.

This weekend I hope that the weather co-operates so we can get our kayak out and practice setting it up and learning how to use it. And spending some quality time with Max out on the water seems like a good way to spend a few hours. I figure if she would paddle one stroke every 5 seconds, that that would propel the kayak 1.3 mph. Which by the way, is the perfect trolling speed using a minnow. Not that I would take advantage of her and fish while she paddled. I am just saying that that is the perfect trolling speed.

“Just sayin….”
