A great Sunday with cooler weather and saw a Pileated woodpecker tonight.

Where are we today ?

         Yup fall is in the air, great night for sleeping, windows open a bit and so nice and cool, extra blankets soon needed.
         Furnace on this morning for a few minutes to bring the temps from 48f inside up to high 60s . Then a nice walkabout first thing with some morning mist (fog) in the area.
love the morning mist
as the sun comes up
     Up near the the entrance is a few huge rocks near the edge of the campsites almost the size of a car, amazing to see. Apparently left here from the "ice age" more than a few years ago.
         Got a few more coffees down and even got Suzie out for a walkabout the park, was nice to get her along for  the exercise. A good group today playing "Holy Board" (washer toss). Because of the long weekend a large turnout, we don't play anymore. About  2 hours or more of hanging around and playing a game that we don't really enjoy that much anymore.
good crowd today
          A nice walkabout around the campsites in the "Forest" , The campground is pretty well full this weekend.
huge sites in the forest
but Huge bugs too
this lovely pool is quiet this morning
but packed in the afternoon
         After a nice light lunch and a couple more walkabouts, we enjoyed our e-readers in the warm afternoon shade, as you know we love our reading time. Even got time to cut my hair and trim my beard again, Suzie does the finishing touches for me, Quick easy and very reasonable. (almost free is good) a new hair trimmer every 8-10 years for $15.00 is sure worth the investment.
          Then time for supper, gonna grill a nice wild pacific salmon filet , seasoned with Old Bay seasoning, lemon slices and parsley to add to a tasty fresh made loaded salad with some Muskmelon (cantaloupe)  made for a wonderful light, healthy and filling meal.
about 10 minutes or so on the grill
tasty? yes
        After supper enjoy another wonderful evening. We heard at first then spotted this huge Red Headed (Pileated woodpecker) searching for food in the trees, so nice to see them here.
Pileated Woodpecker
        Now to wind up another great day here as the temperatures are cooling off. Before calling it a night and heading inside shortly after 8 pm. When it gets too chilly for bare fingers.
         Thanks for stopping by and hope your Labor Day weekend Sunday was as nice as ours.

Check out the interactive map below to see where we have been this summer


  1. That is a very pretty park you are in. My uncle used to call your "Holy Board"..."West Virginia Horseshoes." Any age can play that game.

    1. It is very nice here, we enjoy the area.
      You are right any age can play.

  2. Sounds like a perfect day!

    I love seeing the Pileated Woodpeckers, they are so big. Haven't seen on here though but when we were up further north a few years ago we would see them around the campground.

    1. It was a perfect day.
      These Pileated woodpeckers are very large and amazing to see what they can do to a tree when they find food, chunks of wood just start flying !

  3. Yes, mornings haven gotten much cooler now. Have been lighting a little fire in our stove the last 3 days, just to get it a bit cozy, than let it die out again.

  4. I don't buy farmed food but love the "wild" Pacific salmon. It's cool here this week and we're freezing. I can hardly wait until next week and the temperatures return to the 80's. Fall is definitely close. Love the woodpeckers!

    1. This salmon was wild and excellent. We are having warm weather again for another little while, then cool down again.

  5. Nice picture of "Woody". If you know what I mean, you've just revealed your age... :c)

    1. Ok yeah I know what you mean, I am getting ol as are you.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
