It's Friday evening and we're both pretty tired. We spent much of the day waxing a good part of our home, a rather daunting task since it's 40 feet long and 13 feet tall with 3 slide-outs. But all is good since we're staying at a beautiful campground about 10 miles from the coast in Townsend, GA. Our site overlooks the lake and the birds have kept us occupied when we weren't working. Although we are not official bird-watching enthusiasts, we probably could be with a little practice and knowledge. Today we identified the Yellow Rumped Warbler and the Muscovy Duck, a bird that I'm sure is known to the other birds as the ugly duckling only without the part where he turns into a swan. I'll try to get a picture, but Google it if you get a chance. I think you'll agree.
The pic here is the view from our site. The Spanish moss adds a softness to the southern oaks and can be seen hanging from a branch in the photo.
Tomorrow we''ll take the BMW R1200RT to Brunswick for a little sightseeing and we may even see Avatar in 3D. We've been retired for over 6 weeks and haven't been to the movies yet. We seem to be mighty busy for retired folks.
Below is a pic of our home after one of the three snowstorms that kept us in VA longer than planned. The other is from a trip last May to Estes Park in the Colorado Rockies. It gives a good idea of the size of our rig. All for now.
