Cross Hill, SC (high 87, low 66)
We’re settling in at Lake Greenwood Resort and Marina. It always seems to take a few days to get into a new routine.
It rained all night Thursday night and continued raining most of Friday. When it finally quit raining, and the sun came out, it was stifling hot. My phone app said it was 87 but it felt 10 degrees higher.
Since it was too hot to sit outside, we decided to take a short drive, but cut it short when we noticed the radar had some nasty looking weather coming our way.
Fortunately, the bad weather skirted around us and when we got back home it was cool and beautiful.
We decided to have happy hour on our deck and take some photos of the birds that hang around in our front yard, which is down a beautifully landscaped slope.
We’re enjoying watching mom and dad Bluebird feeding their young in the nest box right in front of us. Maybe we’ll be here when they decide to fledge.
Here is a picture of Al with the big Canon with the new zoom lens. It’s a whopper, isn’t it?
I’m struggling to learn how to use the big Canon. I can’t find a way to allow me to view the pictures as I take them, like I can on LC (little Canon). I like for the photo to freeze in the viewfinder for a second so that I can tell if what I just took needs an adjustment. If it has that option, I can’t find out how. Any suggestions?
We took the cameras and our drinks, and took a walk around the property before dark last night. No it’s not easy handling both cameras and our drinks…..but we managed. :)
Sun setting at the lake.
Stalker zoom alert. Notice the tan house across the lake?
You can see it better in the next picture.
and finally, a picture into their dining room. BTW, this is not taken with that big lens Al was holding earlier. It was taken with my tiny LC on full digital zoom, which has more than twice the zoom as the big, heavy zoom Al was holding earlier. I always enjoy seeing how far I can zoom in. Good thing no one was walking past in their underwear!
Our motor home sitting on the top of the hill. Look at that beautiful landscaping.
After our evening walk, we decided to continue happy hour in the hot tub, and it was wonderful!
We’re hoping to take the kayaks out sometime today, but we also may be going out on our neighbors pontoon boat, and they are having a get together at the clubhouse at 5 this afternoon. Lots to keep us busy today, but I think our first stop will be the hot tub.
We understand there is an eagles nest nearby, so we’re anxious to see if we can find it by kayak. Al thinks he saw one flying around this morning.
We’re loving it here and are not in a hurry to leave. It’s a bit expensive, but this is our anniversary month, so we’re splurging! We’re thinking Savannah will be our next stop. Can anyone recommend a nice campground near Savannah?
