Resting In the Adirondacks

6/9/14 Monday in Diamond Point, NY (Schroon River Resort-ROD)

I cleaned house in the morning then worked on the blog and other computer communications, while John read his Louis L’Amour book. As he said when he bought them, he can do something other than look at his spreadsheets.

After lunch we took a walk then returned to read. Grocery shopping next then I cooked up a macaroni salad. Supper was grilled pork steaks with that salad. We pulled in the slides, water and dumped the tanks so we have little to do tomorrow. We checked out our individual trip plans for tomorrow and got wondering about the extra steps to get off I-87 before getting on I-90 which would save some miles but look like that road was through town and lights. I got a bright idea and went over to the rig that houses the lady in charge here. I said I had a question about our trip and she directed me to her friend there who is a trucker! Yea!!! He was great, letting me know that I should just take I-87 all the way down to I-90 E (Boston) because it was faster than that other road and I-90 E was free (for 21 miles). Then he noted that they are doing construction work on I-495 so the best plan there is to go from I-90 to I-290 at Worcester (Werster) which leads to I-495 at a place beyond the construction.

Here we are, pretty much left alone because most of the campers went home Sunday and a few more today.



About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
