She got some great photos, they brought back memories. We, too, have a class "B" camper, a little smaller than theirs. They're great "go anywhere" campers.

I love the blue shots, but that's because I host blue Monday.

Gosh, there are just so many beautiful places. These photos show just that. Traveling in a RV like this can be so much fun. So nice that they are giving this gift to themselves.

That shot of the Merganzer with her babies on her back brings back memories. I saw one on our creek earlier this spring with 6 riding along. What a wonderful and surprising experience!
