Back to Bob! Sunday

On Sunday morning we awoke to clear skies and low wind.

Then I heard this funny honking.

It was resident Canada geese.

Meanwhile, older mutts were enjoying
a good snout rub in the grass.

Bacon!  You know we love that.

I also smell pancakes.

And then we headed out to cut larger dead fall off.

Here's one.

I wandered over to check the pond out.

Kind of a big guy fell here over the winter.

Arly had the bar along for this job.

All better!

Sandy rakes the step and path off.
Trail's all spiffed up and ready for hikers!

Back to Bob! The NFS campground that is.

 On Friday after Sandy got away from work, we headed to Bob Lake campground.

This could be the nicest campground in the whole world.

And we were the only ones here.
Not even any bugs!

Arly got a fire going right off.

Then we had peanuts.

We even had a lake side table!

What a nice evening.

 


On Saturday after breakfast,
we got to work clearing the Beaver Lodge trail.

Arly cut down some dead fall and leaners here.

I checked for frogs.  We seen the painted turtles here.

Here's a big one we'll need to come back for.

Lunch time! MMM it smells good.

Everyone can smell Zup's polish sausage.

Young dogs with lots of energy dig for chipmunks.
Older mutts were on had to provide tips and tricks.

We clear some dead-falls in camp.

Late in the afternoon, I head some loud birds landing.
Ya our swans came back!

They came rather close.
Later, Bubba and Dean stopped by just to see us!
Bubba asked me in and I was happy to oblige.
Then it was time for fire-roasted steak.
By evening, the day's business finally caught up to some of us.

Bob Lake and Beaver Lodge Trail inspection hike.

Sunday afternoon was sunny and calm so after house project chores were done, we headed west to Bob Lake to hike and check the Beaver Lodge trail out.  We clear this short but nice trail, each summer.

The weather was grand!

This is the short trail right by the lake.  It was pretty good.
 
These two had been on shore.

No one camping here today.


Didn't see the resident trumpeter swans either.

Now back on the Beaver Lodge Trail.

Oh dear, we found dead-falls right off.


We spied turtles sunning themselves here.


We also hiked to and a bit down the NCT and back.

Lots and lots of trees fallen across this trail.

We spied a new beaver pond.

Wonder if anyone will get out here and clear this mess?

What a nice hike.
Maybe we can come back over the week end to camp?

Saturday things

 On Friday, our favorite UPS driver Martin stop by just to see me!  And leave a few packages.  We'd not seen him in a long, long time.   Oh we do miss seeing him.  

Best driver ever AND he gives us treats!

Then on Saturday, we seen little faces peering in the east window.

It's our favorite kids who live next door!

You kids can stop by and see us, anytime.
Everyone here has now been vaccinated.

On Saturday evening, Larry came by!

He ate dinner with us.  Hope we see you again soon!
