No touring today

With all of the driving I’ve been doing the last few days, I decided to just stay in camp today and take care of chores.  It’s been several days since I did battle with the Splendide washer/drier, so it was time for round two.  :)  I took Bruce and Margie's Full Time Journey suggestions to heart, and everything went smoothly.

IMG_1715As you know, I’m good with identifying birds, but wildflowers are another thing.  Please enjoy today’s pictures even though I don’t know what they are.  :)  I found all of these wildflowers blooming away in the four acre dog walk area of the RV park.  Emma was pretty patient with me as I took these photos.  Of course, she was busy sniffing out all the ground squirrel holes.  :)

IMG_1717Another chore I tackled today was changing the sheets on the bed and putting on the new foam bed topper that I bought last week.  This mattress is a lot heavier than the one in my old rig, so it is a real challenge to change the sheets.  The mattress is thick to begin with and with the topper, it was a struggle to get the fitted bottom sheet on.  The plan for tonight is for me to feel like I’m sleeping on a cloud.  :)

IMG_1723I spent a part of the afternoon making reservations for the tours my sister, Pam, and I want to take at the ports of call on our cruise in November.  How fun was that!  I booked three tours so far.  The tours for Nassau aren’t available yet, so I’ll do that later.  I’m so happy to have a compatible traveling companion for the cruise!  It’s a good thing I booked this Escapees cruise before I got the new rig, because I don’t think I would have done it if I had known about my recent added expenses.  Yep, it’s only money.

Thanks for stopping by….talk to you later,  Judy


  1. Hi Judy,
    Red Rock has an awesome slideshow of the wildflowers across the road on their home page. It's under photo galleries and has over 200 shots! It was awesome last year!! Don't know if they added to it or not...

    Best wishes for an awesome night on a cloud!

  2. I don't know the names of wildflowers either but I will call these beautiful. Once again your pics are just stunning...what talent!!
    Glad you are feeling better about the Splendide. It does take some getting used to. Thanks Margie!!
    Take care!!

  3. Wonderful flowers. I like the last one very much.

  4. Yellowstone is a fantastic place, much different than our mountain parks here in Canada, but we have the same traffic and people issues here. although the campground we are presently in is not near full, I am sure by this time next week it will be hard to get a spot anywhere near.

  5. We love your blog and the wonderful pictures.

  6. Your photos are just wonderful and the closeup details are fantastic! Thanks for sharing...
