Today was my first day “off” since we arrived on Monday. Monday was spent traveling here and getting set up in the RV park. Tuesday was spent working on client projects, as was Wednesday and Thursday. So, today was my first day of freedom!
Pops and I took a trip on the 4-wheeler up into the mountain passes. (I uploaded a slew of new photos onto the Colorado Photo Blog to go along side the few shots I made on the way into Salida.)
And, I must admit publicly that my client was right, it would have
been a crime to come back out to Colorado again this year without a
decent camera. That client, Alpharetta real estate agent and camera buff, Jeff Aughey,
send me one of his cameras to borrow for the trip. He had to fuss for me to finally accept (He started out trying to give it to me, but I
refused and we finally agreed to a temporary loan). Now, I’m probably going to end up buying one just like this
one. It’s a tiny little “fit in the palm of your hand” Cannon with 7.1
megapixels. It’s wonderful. I had to call Jeff tonight to tell him that
he was right and how much I appreciated the loan. (Thanks again, Jeff!)
I must admit that the view from the campground made working on standard projects a bit more enjoyable than usual. And I’m starting to breathe a bit easier — not much, just a bit. So long as I don’t have to walk to fast or too far, or (God forbid) run — like I had to yesterday when Pop’s dog, Abby accompanied me on my a.m. constitutional and decided to take off after some other dogs).
The sights from up in the mountains were astounding…
