I Can No Longer See…

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Birch Bay RV resort in Blaine, Washington. This location marks the furthest northern most point of our planned 2014 travels. I’ve been here several times over the years and always enjoy the area. Our departure date is set at August 12th.

I CAN NO LONGER SEE…through the viewfinder of my Sony HX200V digital camera. There are two ways to take a photo with my current camera…use the viewfinder or the 2.5″  articulated diagonal screen. See the rear view of the camera below…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

71W7Ktufx-L._SL1500_If you are a regular reader of my blog, you will remember earlier this year I went to the VA Hospital for an eye exam and yup, I have a cataract in my right eye and should get it attended to soon. The VA was ready to give my an appointment for surgery in June…but I said…it’s to hot here in June (100+ is common)…I’ll be in the Pacific Northwest at that time.

So they said okay…let’s do it in late October…and that’s the current plan.

Yesterday I blogged Mary’s walk on the beach and imagine my surprise when I looked through the viewfinder and all I could see instead of Mary…was a gray blob. Yup, my cataract is getting worse like they said it would. Mary says when see looks into my right eye…she cannot see the cataract. When I close my left eye and look only with the right…everything is fuzzy covered with a light gray haze. Fortunately the glasses I got in Mexico last January allow me to see well enough until it’s time for the operation.

Getting old is a real pain in the you know where…but the alternative is not a good option. Hopefully less than 90 days from now the operation will be completed and all will be well until we do the left eye which is expected in 2016. Such is life…

Yesterday was a cloudy/sunny at 72 degrees. Forecast for today is sunny and 78 degrees.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
