Sunday Notes

Got up to a bit of fog and 72 degrees at the campground, the forecast for today is hot & humid, just like yesterday, Adam & I spent from noon to 5:00PM at the beach and pool yesterday, the water was warm and great we both had our fill of swimming.

Later this morning we will go back to the beach for the day and then I will have to take Adam back to Warrenton MO. to his Mom’s house so he can be back in school for the week.

What a great way to spend a weekend, to bad Donna had to work , but she isn’t the water rat’s that Adam & Grandpa are. I know Rigg’s would have enjoyed swimming if it weren’t for the no dog’s at the beach rule here.

With the limited time I had to spend at the office to get my mail & post an entry in the blog I haven’t had the time to read any other blog’s or post any comments, I will try to catch up a little on Monday, it tough when your trying to have to much fun.

Here are three shots I took through a dirty window from the dinette in the trailer of Adam at the campground play ground, I used the zoom at 88mm which is about the limit of the optical zoom and then went into the digital zoom for the last one, this Canon never cease’s to amaze me with what you can do off the tripod.




This playground is about 100 yards from where the trailer is parked, makes you kind of feel like a sniper.

I better wrap this up for today, so I can get up and post it, Hope everyone can enjoy their day as much as we are. Life is good. Be Safe out there. Sam & Donna.


  1. Fun times with the grandkids! Looks like a great day!

  2. Great pics! I see Adam is still armed just in case that bear decides he wants to play on the playground too. It certainly looks like Adam will have lots of tales to talk about when he returns to school. How wonderful!!
    Your camera is doing a super job for you! Great zoom shots. :-)

  3. Looked like life was not just good, but GREAT!..It was nice you had some time to spend with Adam before the grind of school actually gets underway...Too bad Donna couldn't be there too, but also nice for Adam and Grandpa to "bond"...It's a MAN thing!

  4. The pics of the kids swimming take me back to that age many years ago. Water & kids just seem to go together. Now, I prefer my water hot & coming out out of a shower nozzle.

  5. Yep, sounds like a great weekend. Adam must have had a great time - and grandpa too! Riggs may bite you when you return...well, maybe he didn't read the blog or see the photos.

  6. Gotta love the swimmin hole shots!!! Especially when ya know winters a commin.
