Vacation unplugged and Paloma visits

If you were wondering what happened to me,we left for an extended camping trip where there was no internet-so I was unplugged for awhile,and it was ever so refreshing!
Today's post is photos,and lots of them,so if you dare...
grab a cuppa and relax!
 our set up
 the hill behind our site-filled with glorious pines!
 I did a bit of artwork while away...
 a nature journal I am working on...


 Chum and me hamming it up!

 wind chimes my son,Lindsey sent me for Mother's day
 Chum goes swimming
       Chum and Riley rock climbing!

 love the smell of campfire!

this plant is called a Lady Slipper-just gorgeous!

and finally

 Before we left,Paloma the dove of peace arrived at our home.
Life was a bit upended at that time,so instead of photographing her at home,Paloma came camping with us.
 Paloma was started by sweet Lys in France,as a Peace ambassador to visit the world through blogging friends. 
Lys,Paloma's creator began this journey shortly after the horror of the attack on Paris almost two years ago: in Lys' words...

After the shock, the anger, the nausea ... what to say, what to do?I have only weapons made of paper and words ... I can face violence only with my values ​​and beliefs.Freedom and peace are the ones I Wished to give today.So this is Paloma, my little dove single paper.

 If you would like to be included in her travels, please contact Lys at her blog... ImpressionScrap 
 or to follow her Where is Paloma
 After trying many spots to rest...
 Paloma landed in the soft pines for her final photo before heading out in the post to the UK and to visit Brenda Brown of Bumblebees and Butterflies
If you hung in till the are the best! heehee

Thank you so very much for your visit and comments. 
 I will be back regularly posting and visiting again in a few days!
