As the day went on our sun started to get covered by clouds. As the people arrived we were deciding where to have the beer tasting, inside or outside. We finally decided on eating inside and drinking by the fire pit.
I took my brisket off the pit. It had been smoking for 7 to 8 hours. It looked beautiful.
Our friends took us camping at Kings River outside of Sutton north of Anchorage, Alaska. We went in their camper. It was a beautiful weekend. It was sunny but not too hot. We sat by the campfire and went for walks. We enjoyed watching the river.
Imagine waking up to the sound of running water and the birds talking. I love waking up this way. Sitting around a morning fire drinking coffee. This is the life for me.
We have been walking the 4 wheeler trails around our camp. I even crossed creeks with one coming almost to my knees. It was cold and helped my heel feel better. I have taken a few shots but will upload the ones from the camera when we get home.
It is so peaceful here. I really enjoy camping. We have gotten older and sleep in a camper. These old hips don’t do ground sleeping any more. Besides you should see me getting up off the ground when you can’t use your knees. Get that butt up in the a and get off the ground.
As far as the diet goes we are sticking to it pretty good. We might be going over on the beer. But what is camping if not beer around the campfire at night. I am cooking lamb chops over the fire tonight and we are having cauliflower salad too.
Even the Flat Ole Hippies came with us.
Well the twins are bringing Mom and Dad out but they had to go to a wedding first. We are going to start the fire, so I can cook, and I am going to say bye for now. I get to check my list now.
We set off with our friends this morning heading for the Golden Circle again. It was rainy and very foggy.
David and Cindy actually knew where they were going because we ended up at the Geyser.
After we checked that out we went into the shop and we got to drive a tractor around the store. That was pretty cool.
Next stop was Gullfoss Waterfall. It was huge and fast. It was the most amazing waterfall we had ever seen.
Our next stop was very disappointing to us. It was Fontana Geothermal Baths and we were not allowed in. They said we would fall apart if we went in the warm water. They even said our colors would run. We did get to look at it though.
To make up for it though we got some nice beer at the brewery.
After that we were all pretty beat because we started off early this morning. We can’t wait to see where they take us tomorrow.
Well we started off this morning with our friends. We were not sure they knew where they were going but they said, “Sure we do. We are going to the Golden Circle.” We never saw a golden circle but we did have a good time. We headed out on our road trip. We saw beautiful waterfalls, great scenery, wonderful clouds and drove through a tunnel under a fjord.
When we got back to the apartment we found out that we never did get to the Golden Circle, but fun was had by all anyway.
We then decided to go to downtown Reykjavik and have a beer.
The bartenders were so pleasant that we left them a tip. Then we all walked home discussing what we would do tomorrow.
