Stowaway and a Sylville Kinda Day

Jordan Lake State Park
Poplar Point CG (site E95)
Apex, NC

Meet our little stowaway, Roamin P. Duck (RPD).  We’re not sure what the P stands for, any suggestions?   He doesn’t require much upkeep and he really seems to like water.

We like the water too and spent most of the afternoon floating in the cove.  Roamin encouraged us to go for a paddle late in the afternoon since it wasn’t too hot so we obliged him.  The water was like glass.  Don’t let Gin get too far away.

Unfortunately, there are several dead fish washed up on the shore around here and it smells like Smudge’s breath.  I didn’t know that Ospreys would let Buzzards get this close to them, and this Heron screeched at us as he flew away.

We could get used to this kind of life.  We were so at ease and comfortable all day.  It’s what we like to call a Sylville kinda day.  Serenity personified.

Thanks for dropping by, and enjoy each day of your life’s journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.

I like your Roamin P. Duck, I can't wait to introduce him to our Tag.

Make sure you get this relaxing lifestyle down pat, it'll do you both good when you hit the road fulltime. Practice makes perfect!

Duckie is VERY excited to meet Roamin. He thinking hard about the P and wants you to head straight out here so he can show Roamin the great lakes he's been on. Hope that house sells PDQ.
