We haven't spent the night at Our River Place
since Labor Day Weekend..
and Man oh Mercy...
I can tell you that Nature waits for NO ONE.
The water is so high because of the rains.
Which means the snakes, and other critters
have moved up closer to the trailer.
It took Brad hours to mow the grass down far enough
so that we could even see the water.
But... when we got it cut down
I remember why it is I LOVE this place so much.
He had to take a few breaks in the mowing
because his helper wanted to STOP and ride,
and play, and pick up sticks, and drive.
While Brad worked on the outside...
I worked on the trailer.
It had been lived in though for the entire
9 months that we were gone.....
However our guests were small furry creatures
who tend to eat their dwellings,
and leave an overwhelming amount
of droppings behind.
All I can say about that is....YUCK !!!
I used a whole can of bleach wipes,
and countless amounts of spray
but.. I got it finished.
So...we decided to call it a day
sit around , eat a burger,
and enjoy the incredible peace
that only the sound of water brings.
As the sun was on its way down...
Creatures came out by the loads..
I managed to keep Brady from grabbing a few
so I could take their picture.
He could not get enough of them..
and wanted to stay longer...
but the cold weather we had this winter
busted all of our pipes...
so that will require another weekend
to get them up and running.
SO... until the next time...
We just sat and enjoyed the sound of the River
and soaked up the peacefulness of being so far
out in nature that NO cell phones work,
NO cable is available, and there's NOT a tv channel in site.
