I slept until about 7:00, but apparently the last couple of early mornings caught up with Linda. She slept until almost 10:00. :)
I kept the camera trained on the hummingbird feeder ...
but our little female hummer would only show up after I would tire of waiting. :)
We got caught up on some work and returned emails this morning. Around noon, I aired up our bike tires and then went to play some basketball at the court in the campground.
When I got back, Linda ran into town for a couple items and I returned a few more emails.
It was a beautiful morning and then it clouded up a bit in the afternoon. We just had a nice relaxing day. Linda read outside in her lounger for awhile.
While I was poking around on Facebook, I came across an item a friend posted.
It was a photo of the Paige Bradley sculpture "Expansion". And although the sculpture is quite striking, it was these words that accompany the sculpture that I found most compelling.
the world tends to have a
container already built for us
to fit inside: A social security
number, a gender, a race,
a profession or an I.Q. I ponder
if we are more defined by the
container we are in, rather than
what we are inside. Would we
recognize ourselves if we could
expand beyond our bodies?
Would we still be able to exist
if we were authentically
That, my friends, is the essence of the entire underlying notion of RV-Dreams. If no one ever takes on full-time RVing or RVing at all for that matter, our hope is much broader. Our hope is that the visitors to the website simply look beyond the "container".
A little after 6:00, we finished off our leftovers and had some strawberry shortcake for dessert. Then we went on our evening bike ride.
The clouds started to lift as we rode about 6 miles around the park.
When we returned back to the rig, Linda chilled out in her lounger, while I rode over to the nearest bathhouse for a shower.
There's just such a peace that flows over us when we're camping in a state park. The surroundings are inviting. The most prevalent sounds here are the songbirds and gulls, the breeze, and the water of the lake lapping up on shore.
We don't get to experience the type of camping we love every day, but it is a huge part of our lives - the lives we live "uncontained". :)
