We just returned
from an absolutely beautiful weekend.
Over the past few weeks,
we have attended graduations, dance recitals,
had out of state company, worked overtime, and
still somehow tended elderly, yard/garden and the house.
This weekend, we took Friday off and headed out
in our 'new toy.'
I will share more about her soon.
But what I wanted to share today
is that lately I've noticed that so many people
seem to be concerned with getting it all on camera (or phone.)
It makes me wonder if they are actually enjoying the moment
or just recording the moment others are enjoying.
It kinda gets me turned sideways inside.
I want to live life, not just watch it or record it.
My camera has been pretty idle lately.
It was so beautiful in this area of Hells Canyon
that I did decide to snap a couple shots.
The above picture is the meadow where we were camped.
It was just us and another couple.
The dogs ran like race horses and tumbled like bear cubs.
We watched the dogs, listened to the river and the breeze
in the trees as well as the chipmunks and birds.
There was a bald eagle that was flying around.
The guys didn't catch much in the way of fish.
I don't think they really minded.
Mr. LB said, "I forgot how beautiful it was there."
This was my first time to that part of the river.
Alas, like all good dreams, it had to end.
We came back rested and at peace.
If only we could live in such peace.
I know it's not for everyone; some folks love entertainment
and busy city streets.
Hubby and I both love wilderness and solitude.
It's one of the things we love about each other.
Until next time,
