The Road is Calling

I’ve been on the road for only a couple of hours, but due to a lazy, late start from home, I’m already feeling the need for lunch.

Bird Point Trailhead was the perfect spot for a sandwich and a scenic walk with Ronni.

This beautifully maintained nature trail runs for over six miles along Turnagain Arm, but not having that much time to explore, Ronni and I settled for about half a mile (round-trip) to some spectacular viewing points.

There were also nice, practical, designated potty areas for Ronni. The view out my window while I enjoyed lunch was awesome, but we couldn’t linger..

Less than an hour later, I found winter again (well, not really … but geez!). It may be nearly Memorial Day, but you couldn’t tell it up on Turnagain Pass.

We didn’t take any longer at this chilly rest area than it took for a photo op. The road was calling and I had my heart set on a quieter, greener setting before dinner time.

Another hour or so and Ronni and I were settled into our lake-view campsite. You really can’t beat the view.

This is the view from my RV. The picnic table is in the lake-side site right across from me – currently occupied by a single tent. Lucky them!

As soon as we were checked in (that was a bit of a hike in itself), I took Ronni for a quick romp on the beach. This 3-minute path took us right to the shore.

The weather remains overcast, but Kenai Lake never fails to impress.

And happily, May 24th is the last day of FF/FS camping here. It’s quiet and peaceful this evening, with campsites only lightly occupied. I checked the website though – there is hardly a site not reserved (much less a lake-view site) from tomorrow through mid-July!

After a light dinner (a leftover beef-brisket sandwich from home and some macaroni salad), Ronni and I made another squirrel-scouting trip. We are now settled in for the evening.

I think this view is just perfect for spinning. What do you think?

I’m a RV Sometimer (less than full time, but more than a weekend warrior) living in Alaska, with dreams of seeing the country in my RV. I am 70 years old and married, but my husband isn’t a fan of RV travel, so my journeys are mostly solo except for my navigators; dachshunds Baxter & Rhonda. I’m also a spinner of tales - and a spinner of yarn (my other passion). My spinning wheel, along with the dogs, go along on all my travels. I look forward to sharing my stories, including photos and videos, with you.
