We Didn’t Get Far

Seven-tenths of a mile to be exact. 

Pipestream Reservoir, Jamestown, N.D.

We got already to leave Parkhurst Campground, drove by the dumpster to deposit a bag of trash and decided to drive down to the lake to see what was happening.  Everyone had cleared out except for one tenter.  It looked inviting.

The weather forecast called for rain and other fun stuff by midday. 

At the turnaround at one end was a cement slab, all that is left of a building that once stood there.
I thought Why leave?  This is nice.  Best we’ve had all week.

I would much rather sit out the weather here with this nice view than in a city park.
Also there was a lot of bird action to watch.
Don’t be surprised if we stay here for a few days.
Will see how it goes.

That evening.

This is why I live this life.

Beans ignores the fireworks explosions.  Sinbad was deathly afraid of them.

You've got a knack for finding great spots.

Any skeeter issues with all the campsites you've visited so close to the water?
They are bugging B.K. (Barn Kat) and I a bunch at our place. He has more fur than I do.......
