Goodby Water’s Edge RV Resort

6/13/15 Saturday in Cascade, ID (Water’s Edge RV Resort-EA/$15/night)

Brr, can you believe it was 42 degrees when we got up around 7:00? We actually turned the heat on. To think we’ve been using air conditioning a lot the last few weeks, it was something of a shock. With warm sweatshirts on we walked to town and back, looking for a good path on our way out of the campground. The construction near the entrance/exit makes turning onto the road difficult. Then I worked on the blog while John read.

In the gorgeous afternoon we went outside to read, parking ourselves in the shade and in the sun, because it was cool in the former and pretty warm in the latter. Later we took another exploratory walk around the see how we’d depart from this campground and found a great way, not all the way into town, yet giving us a better approach to the construction intersection. We watched a PBS show on D-Day.

Before supper we got into a fun conversation with our neighbors: they assured us that going north on US 55 was better than south, but we’d have a twisty narrow road after McCall for a few miles.

Our evening entertainment was cards. John slaughtered me, winning all three games by a huge margin. It was “13” and his total of points (against him) was 34!

Before the sun set I got some images of this lovely campground on the Payette River.

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.
