An exciting adventure looking at the land and the people around me.

A few days of cold introduced the month of October to Fall weather. I hadn't worn long pants very often other than on some chilly mornings fishing. I was up on the lake all day Sunday welcoming bits of sunshine and feeling the change in the weather. Nobody else stayed in the campground so it was a true delight to have the area to one's self. A few large groups of Franklin Gulls were coming from the north headed for winter grounds along the Pacific coast and into areas farther south. I could see a glint of a scope across the lake on a lookout and headed across hoping it was someone I knew. A lady from Missouri had her scope set up and shared for a short time before she had to meet with her group elsewhere. It was nice to see a close-up of the migrants, along with a few others I hadn't seen very well with my binoculars. After she headed out I stayed and watched the massive rafts of birds until a boat moved them down the lake farther. It was a highlight of the day, a gift for my birthday. I smiled thinking about them a few times as I hiked enjoying a crisp fall day.
Lily really likes to roll in the sand.
Also taking time to dig, showing Daisy the ropes didn't take long today.
