Checking Out The Van

Finally, we got The Goshawk ready for a local mid-week camping trip to Ricker Pond State Park. I had reserved the only on-shoreline spot we could fit into and as I write this looking out the door, I can see early sign of autumn’s colors reflected in the water while a soon-to-depart Common Loon cruises and calls. Few campers, mid-seventies temps, and a nice forecast. What’s not to like?

After a quick setup, Penny and I took a pretty walk where this Great Blue Heron posed for us.

Sally is coming tonight with the kayaks so we’ll hit the water in the morning. While we are waiting, we tried some selfies to pass the time. Penny is up and frisky after a couple of tough medical weeks so we should have a couple of good shakedown days as we get ready for longer journeys.

    So happy the Goshawk is up and running, Dick! It has been a long haul for you. I was sorry to read that Penny has been unwell. Hopefully, she’s on the road to a full recovery. We are headed to South Carolina for December, January and February. Four of the state parks are offering half off their regular rate for seniors. We were going to AZ, but it turns out that we only get 8 miles to the gallon pulling the trailer!!! No way we could pay for the gas all the way there and back. Anyway, you and Sally have a wonderful time kayaking on this beautiful day 😊🚣.

    Glad your van is back and the two of you are out and about. We are listening to the book, H is for Hawk. Fascinating memoir with lots of info on Goshawks. Mica
