Social Life

During our stay at wilderness lakes thousand trails, I tried bunco. I’ve never played bunco before but I’m determined to stay active and meet new people. Marla taught me how to play. I met her while walking our yorkie Joey one morning.  The bunco ladies are ready with good conversation and a cup of coffee at Wilderness Lakes in the family lodge. Thank you, Marla for inviting me!


The baby geese & baby ducks are everywhere this spring at Wilderness Lakes. While camping here we spotted a baltimore oriole this is a new bird for us.

One windy afternoon a small fire started in a field near our motorhome.  At first I thought someone was bbqing and didn’t invite us. The smoke was blowing towards our motorhome and it was too much smoke for a bbq. Kevin was at work so I did a quick look at the motorhome and decided to just leave it all and grab our yorkie if the fire got out of hand. The staff, fire department and campers were quick to respond so the fire was out fast. This brush fire was a quick lesson in priorities for me.

Kevin and I walked about 1 mile everyday around the campground and outside the campground. One day I saw a mallard mother reject a lost baby. When the baby tried to join her family, she grabbed its neck and threw it. Later, the baby duck met up with its own parents. I like a good happy-ever-after story. If only life was always a happy ending.
