Wow, I still can't get over our day yesterday, it was just so right in so many ways. Well today is the last day of September, it's almost kind of like the ending to a long chapter...the Summer Chapter of our book! Last night when we parted ways with J & J, we headed up to a new place to sleep. We were going to go to "the place where the RV's sit on the side of the road" but as we drove by slowly to investigate, it looked pretty jam packed and it was dark and we didn't feel like messing with it so we headed to another spot that we had as back-up. It worked out perfectly for sleep, peace and quiet. Since we headed off to sleep way earlier than usual we woke up way earlier than usual, so we drove back to Shaver Lake. I have to say being self-contained is much easier, especially when you just want to get up and move! We drove back down to the lake and since we were the first ones there (it was only 8:15 a.m.) we were able to get the primo spot on the rocks to be level all day, instead of cocked at an awkward angle like yesterday.

It was super peaceful, there were skiers on the glass water and I even fed the ducks...one duck turned into five. I love ducks!! Savannah acts likes she's tough and she's gonna get 'em but as soon as she hits the water, she turns around...she's so funny.

Look at Savannah in the next picture, she is so focused on the bread and wondering why she isn't getting any! Silly baby! And why do I look like Casper the Ghost!? haha

After my duck feeding frenzy I made COFFEE!!!!! There is nothing like being on a peaceful beach in the early morning hours with noone there with a pipin' hot cup of REAL coffee with REAL creamer in your hand...it's perfect.
Today is Sunday so with that we were bound to get people around us and being the magnets that we are to "rude" people these days (although everyone just tells us it's California) we were definitely going to get some traffic! It started out with a couple of (big) fishermen guys in a paddle boat, they were funny to watch, then the couple with the 4 wiener dogs that were "just a delight" (not), then a houseboat that came to shore to party along with a jetski and lots of people.

It was all good, we don't mind people... just mind our space and it'll be cool. The "nice" couple's dogs kept wanting to come check out our spot, probably due to the sammies I was making and Savannah is just so fun to play with, the girl was NOT having it although I told her they were fine...she didn't like that! And although she didn't want her dogs coming into our space, she sure didn't mind her husband doing it! He had 4 fishing poles set up in the sand, one of which was almost right in front of where we were...where I was feeding the ducks not long ago. He then had to come into our space and sit in our camp and fish on the rocks in front of the van for about an hour...ummmm, sure come on over, you don't have enough sharp hooks in the water already so we can't go in...come into our space, into our bubble, we love to look at your big fat red shirt while gazing out at the lake....Noooo problem. (Now I know this is a public place but I think we are of a handful of people that actually still respect personal space...so annoying.)

I didn't let it ruin my day...just a few minutes of it! heehee I did however meet a super nice guy and his daughter that were from Madera, they were just up for the day. It was funny I was washing all of our silverware in the sand (sand= abrasive!) and his dog ran over to me and almost knocked me into the water...big dog, he came running over to grab him. He probably thought it was funny to see some chick washing her silverware in the lake! I don't care, it was the best idea I had all day! haha
After all of the lake shenanigans we decided to pack it up a little earlier today than yesterday to get a good resting spot for the night. We ended up going to "Meditation Point" (the first camping spot Bob & Miss Cherry camped at). It was just as beautiful as we remembered it AND no one was there so yay for us!

Now that we are in a spot for the night I am making pa-shgetti for dinner...just waiting for the noodles to boil and then we'll probably just take it easy...no T.V. reception or internet in this spot.
What will tomorrow hold for us crazy bohemians?
