If not feeling well, click four pics daily until conditions improve.
The walkway goes from the beach to the marina. It's designed to be able to go up and down depending on the lakes water level, so right now I would say it's down.
Another day of crowds on the beach, but they don't last long on Sunday. Usually, after lunch, most folks start to pack up and head back home.
For me, of course, it makes no difference; every day is the same, except it's more crowded on the weekends, so weekends are actually when I do less; I try to stay out of the way of the working folks so they can enjoy their all too brief weekends off with their families, without me taking up any recreational space.
I saw a truck camper for sale on the Internet, and it sounded really interesting, but it was in Colorado. I checked back a few days later and couldn't find it again, which probably meant it was sold. It was a Northern Lite, which like the Bigfoot, is made of two halves of fiberglass connected, somewhat like a boat, so there are very few problems for leaks or rot, which is why those two brands are my favorite.
But both of those brands have a difficult problem for me to overcome; they are heavy and expensive. It seems like no matter how old those two brands are, they still cost a fair amount of money, I see a lot of old campers that are made out of sticks and tin for sale cheap, but I don't think I've ever seen a really cheap Bigfoot or Northern Lite, unless they were pretty messed up, no matter how old they are. And I guess that's because those two brands have good bones. They may be out of style, but that fiberglass shell lasts almost forever.
And as for heavy, it seems like the newer they are, the more corpulent they have become. So the only Bigfoot or Northern Lite I pay any attention to are the older ones because some of them are somewhat lighter than the newer models, and are something I could carry on a three-quarter-ton truck, although I might have to add a couple more leaf springs.
So with those two problems of expensive and heavy, it's doubtful that I would end up with one of those well-built brands, which isn't that big a deal for me if you think about it . After all, at my age I don't need something that will last 20 years .
On the right is the Marina office, gift shop, restaurant, boat rental, slip rental, and restrooms. I've probably left something out, it's a pretty busy place.
Herds of Carp hang around the Marina and the walkway, I think some people feed these annoying critters, because when I walked to the edge of the water they start blowing kisses at me.
Carp are loathed and despised wherever I go because of the damage they do, the worst of which is they eat the eggs of the game fish, and without the game fish most of these fishermen wouldn't even be here.
Here are some of the rental houseboats. They've got a lot of money tied up in these things, and there not making a profit tied to the dock like this.
More rental houseboats. I think these are bigger than the ones in the previous picture, and have more powerful engines. And what's the point of a houseboat without a sliding board.
I feel fortunate to have spotted this giant Peruvian Condor of Paradise that's invading the United States. The giant Peruvian Condor of Paradise, is a hybrid of the Giant Black Condor, and the Hawaiian Bird of Paradise. They get their incredible size from the Giant Black Condor, and their stunning colors from the Bird of Paradise, which will reportedly, if given the chance "fly up your nose. "
This giant bird only lives in the Sahara Desert next to Peru, and his diet consists almost totally of Peruvians. For untold eons this Condor of Paradise has been unable to leave his home territory because Peruvians are hard to find anyplace except Peru.
But this incredible photograph I took yesterday, clearly shows that there has been a disturbance in the force, and the giant Peruvian Condor of Paradise has migrated to America and this can clearly be seen by the American dangling limply from the terrifying talons of this brutal bird.
I don't want to scare anyone but there's definitely no hope for anyone's survival since two or three of these formidable feathered fowl can decimate this country in a couple of months and there is absolutely nothing anyone can ..... Wait a minute, let me put my glasses on ..... hmmmm....never mind.
