Magnum, Meego, and I just got back from a techno-free wilderness weekend at Lake Isabel, one of our favorite techno-free locations.
It was nice to get away and commune with nature. The weather was very welcoming, and we got in a fair amount of hiking, fishing, splashing, chopping, fetching, etc.
Chaco and Wolfgang both worked on Saturday, so they didn't join us. While we missed having them around, it was nice knowing that someone was back holding down the house and giving the pets their needed affection.
And in the meantime, we had some camp visitors from the animal kingdom so we wouldn't feel left out.
I awoke last night to see Magnum sitting up, unzipping the tent window and peering out.
"I heard a bear or something scratching on the bear boxes", he whispered.
"I didn't hear anything", I whispered, so as to cancel out his hearing a bear.
"It was a few minutes ago", he shushed.
A little while later, I heard what sounded to me like something scratching on a bear box farther away than our bear box. Ah well...
The only furry critter we saw in our camp this morning was this one
He/she is going to be a nice big butterfly (moth?) soon, I think.
So a good way to wrap up an otherwise nice week - communing with nature and carrying stuff, and stuff!
