The sunset was beautiful last night, and other than having more issues with 30-amp service (I found out only the sites in the very back have 50-amp), it was a nice night.

The first thing we watched was suggested by Declan. It’s the DVD that came with the reissue of Bridge Over Troubled Water. There are two things on it, which Declan recently watched on PBS and told me I HAD to watch, because they talk about how they do harmonies, Mom! That feature is called “The Harmony Game.” Also on there is “Songs of America,” which was only broadcast once in 1969. It’s really cool to see it as it was on TV—they had to sorta reconstruct it. It’s well worth getting the CD just to get those shows. So, that’s my plug!
While we didn’t do much, there was lots to enjoy. Believe it or not, one of my favorite times was ten or fifteen minutes I spent, supposedly reading while Lee fixed the windshield wipers. I watched an adolescent mockingbird practicing catching bugs, just a few yards away from me. The bird got a wasp, and took many tries to actually eat it. There was a great deal of jumping around, flapping, and pecking involved. That’s the kind of stuff you don’t get to say in your hurried day. This place has many, many families of mockingbirds flying around and yelling at each other in a variety of bird languages. I have not seen a blue jay here, but I sure have heard them.
