Skagit Bay Presunrise #3

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort along the shore of Skagit Bay in LaConner, Washington. I’ve been here a number of times over the past years and always enjoy it here. It’s my favorite resort in the entire Thousand Trails system. My departure date is tomorrow.

Mary is at home tending to personal matters…home maintenance, family, friends, rentals, etc..  She has made her flight reservations to meet me tomorrow in Bellingham, Washington.

I’ve gotten lazy in my retirement. Usually only after publishing my daily blog, attending to my email, have breakfast…attend to my morning toilet and other miscellaneous items…do I head out to do my photography…during the worst time of the day for good results…under the harsh light of mid-day.

The other day though…I got off my lazy butt and got out early. I was in position where I wanted to be and shot during the precious 15 minutes before the sun came over the horizon.

Take the time to absorb and inhale the beautiful pastel colors in the below photos. They were shot in the Watercolor Mode of my camera and lasted only a few moments before they were gone…

In this mode the colors are enhanced and remind me of vintage color postcards like those of 100 years ago. I like them and hope you do…

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS. More presunrise photos tomorrow…

Yesterday was a sunny at 70 degrees. Forecast for today is sunny and 72 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!
