the magic
June 23, 2015

tomorrow we move on again. up to OR in pursuit of cooler temperatures. the highs here in the valley this weekend will be in the mid to teen 100s. with ac in a house, well, not so bad but even with ac in our little casita, well, a challenge! our little ac unit just works and works and works but it is all uphill, like that little engine that could and we can barely stay comfortable. and then there is the most expensive item on board, our little rv refrigerator which also works over-time trying to keep our fridge cool under such extremes.

nothing like living in an rv as a gypsy to make you really take note of the weather.

we would have liked to skip over to the ca coast again up in redwood country. but all the campsites there are reserved right thru july so we'd be taking a real chance heading that way just hoping for a cancellation/walk in situation.

so it's up to OR for us. higher elevation, back into the conifer forests. and another lake and maybe if we're lucky more dark skies and the milky way. there's a good chance we'll lose wifi, internet and maybe even cell connections. but i'm handling that better now. I miss it, but i'm learning to relax about it and enjoy the extra hours to sit outside beside a fire and under the stars, to linger longer by the lake with no texts to check or calls to make. the luxury of time to study coots interacting with their babies on the lake, the young mallards growing braver and more adventurous, the mallard mom letting them go a little further away each day.

stuff like that without the news, internet and phones or any other distractions to fill the hours.

time to photograph bugs lit up by the sunset, like so many flecks of golden glitter rising. this shot and then another but none of them exactly as magical as what you see there in real time, real life. real time, real life is truly a magic show unfolding hourly if we just show up without distractions to see it.
