Bill and I both went to bed at a better time last night. Me at 10 and him around 11:30. At least the later night would ensure a good night’s sleep. And it was. We woke and greeted the day around 6:30. We took a nice walk, about 2 miles this morning. The air was still and the sun popped up over the mountain with a vengeance. Yay!
|The way the fog and mist hung around the mountains|
was very pretty
We missed you Morning Glory!

Keith went up with Bill for two trips to empty our gray tank and some of the black. We need a new hose for macerating the black water, one bigger in diameter, but as for now, we will be fine until we move. The rest of the morning was pretty uneventful. Around 11, I decided to go for a walk and did the loop up to the dumping area and back to the west and then south towards home. It was a nice leisurely walk.

|The rinky dink hose we have needs to be replaced with a bigger one|
It would help the maceration process work much better
|Finally, a para-glider went right overhead|
Bill got his drone out, Keith had his out later and Kim and I sat on the patio and chatted about this, that and the other. The sun was beautiful and very warm for only being about 60F. When Higgins started barking and didn’t seem to stop, I realized that his Momma had been gone for about 5 hours so unlocked their door and brought him out. I love the little guy but it is really hard to walk him because he wants to pull so much. I’m not used to his strength so I don’t take him too far.
|I was enjoying the warm sun while the boys dumped tanks|
It was only 54F and I was in a tank top
We walked a bit and then I tied him to his rope on their patio in the shade. It was too hot on our side. He seemed to be okay there and within half hour Bob and Jo-Anne returned. He wasn’t misbehaving by barking. I think he was just lonely and could probably hear us outside, wanting to be with us. 😊
|I walked as far as the dumping station|
and turned around to take a picture of the lineup
12:30 and there were 15 in line

|There he is!|
We were sitting in the sun and we noticed Dave and Cheryl drive in. They are camped at Emerald Cove near Parker and drove in for Happy Hour. It was wonderful to see them and they will return to camp for a few days on Sunday.
|This looks like the Happy Hour that never|
happened but we had all vacated just for a few minutes
|to meet at Deb and Tom's for a toast|

L to R: Shirley, Bill, Ken K, Deb, Tom, Ken W
|Dave, Cheryl, Jo-Anne, Higgins, Bob, Shirley|
|Tom, Ken W, Kim, Keith|
Tom and Deb wanted to open a bottle of champagne to toast to George when all of us were together. We all thought that was a very sweet idea and gathered at their patio around 3 pm. At Tom’s request, Bill said a few emotional words to the group and our glasses were raised. “To George!” I only hope he left his rv’ing world knowing the impact he had on our lives.
|Ken and Shirley put out a healthy feast which we all enjoyed|
We walked back to our patio where our chairs were waiting and the conversations flowed again. We never lack things to talk and laugh about. Life is good!
|Gathered around our site for a nice visit|
|I stood up on our top step to get these|
|I took a group one from the west side too|
|Ken had us all laughing with his SeaHawks gear|
I do believe he was encouraged to some degree
Dave and Cheryl left around 5:30 and eventually we all went our own way for supper. I watched Keith playing ball with Oreo for a while. She was so good on her own site during the whole time we were sitting at ours. Not a peep out of her, she deserved some play time.
|Just missed the sun dropping|
|The mountains to the east were so pretty in pink|
|Throw it Dad, I'm so ready!|
|No way could this be a clear picture with her speed|
I’ve never seen a dog run so fast after a ball! Bill lit the Weber and grilled a pork chop and a chicken breast. Inside I cooked broccoli and corn. For a change, we had some Creamy Lime Jell-o for dessert and took care of dishes.
Bill sat with his book and I sat at my laptop. I finished my book today so will be working a different genre. It is called The Godmothers, Last Edition by Fern Michaels so we will see how that goes! Turns out, I only got a chapter read and went to bed at 8:30! LOL
This was a great day and the sun, warmth and friends just made it so special.

Good night everyone!
Thank you for your visit!
