A river runs through it
Today was a gorgeous day and a day of rest for us. Andy's place is beautiful and peaceful, much better than any campground. In the afternoon we got out the lounge chairs and just relaxed in the shade of a huge apple tree in the yard, admiring the view, the open fields, and the mountain ranges. It was so peaceful that Bernie decided to take a nap.
Andy’s best friend and his wife came over for a bbq. They invited us to join them. Everything was delicious, veggie salad, fruit salad, chicken and burgers and corn on the cob.
After dinner we went out to their huge yard and walked and talked. We saw their beautiful and plentiful garden, from which we’ve had veggies two days in a row now.
Then we decided to go explore and take a walk to the river through the woods. We saw birds, flowers, and bear tracks. We picked blueberries and blackberries along the way. We eventually made it to this gorgeous river with huge rocks. The mosquitoes were sooo bad here, no amount of bug spray would keep them away, so we high tailed it back to the house.
We visited for a little while with Andy and his wife and friends, and then headed in to take showers and rest for the night.
