Snail's Breakfast

The Fuzz saw this guy this morning and couldn't resist a pix…
Or two.

Another Day… Another Lake

Well it's been awhile again.  This seems to be a trend these days.
So, what's up with The Fuzz?

Well, first he was on "Grandpa Duty" for awhile.
This involved trying to keep up with a wild little granddaughter while her momma was at work.
And this did keep him busy, we assure you.

But he did survive.

When he got back in town there was a bit of gardening to take care of.

And that seems to be doing fine for now.

There had been a good deal of rain around here while he was gone.  It turned out that the water had pooled up on the Molly B's tarp-cover and kinda caved it in.
This sorta bent up the PVC frame for the sun awning.
He's attempting to get things straitened out now.
How well this works remains to be seen.

But he did make it up to the lake yesterday.
And got a look at this guy.
But he didn't stay still for long…
Still dragging the landing gear.
And one last brief look before he was gone.
Sorry the pix aren't better though.

The Fuzz caught a couple of tiny fishes, then spent the rest of the day on a slow exploration cruise.
It turned out to be a nice day.

Lakecamping Backwaters

Although she is not a canoe or kayak, the Molly B can take The Fuzz into those backwaters he enjoys so much.
When the water gets shallow, it's no problem to pull up the motor and get out the oars.
How could he not love a place like this?

Fishing is just an excuse to get out and "Mess About" as it were.
But it seems that his bobber has a stowaway on board!

And that stowaway has plenty of friends around.
Now here's another challenge.
These guys are really beautiful…
But how to catch them in flight?
They're fast!
And just Forget auto-focus…
But it can be done.

And yeah…

They did get the worm while The Fuzz was busy with the camera.

But that's all part of the fun.

Nightfall At The Lakecamp

When we left The Fuzz last time, he was doing a bit of bird watching whilst waiting for the sunset…
and his dinner!

There were not a lot of other campers here in mid-week…
(which is one advantage to retirement)

But there were a couple of guys camped just a bit up the road.
And they were making the most of things.

Which made for more photo-fun for Our Fuzz.

Just like the interplay of the water and land…
That of day and night…
Light and darkness…
Makes Photo-Ops.
So here's just a couple shots of this candle-latern.

Jordan Lake Camp - An Evening Visiter

The Fuzz always has enjoyed the edge of the lake, sea or a river for that matter.
Even in the mountains, the creekside camps are the best.
It must be the interaction between the two different "worlds" and their interconnectedness that make these waterside camps so appealing.
Seems to be the way for most of us creatures.

Early in the evening, before dark The Fuzz was visited by this fellow.
He didn't seem bothered by The Fuzz's proximity at all.
Actually he was kind of a Ham about it all…

And he was back the next night as well.

And we all know Our Fuzz can't resist trying for a nice shot when he finds one.
But soon it will be dark and that will be another Photo-Op.

Lake Camping

The Fuzz recently got to campout over at Jordan Lake.
Of course he took his little boat along in the hope of doing a little fishing…
Which usually amounts to more like
"Feeding the Fish"

But the weather was nice with no rain, which is always good for camping.

So here are a few pix.

A view of the camp from across the inlet

And a look at The Fuzz's little Molly B complete with sun awning.

And lastly…
The camp after sunset.

The Fuzz has a few more pix of course, and promises to get a few more posted next time.
