Making the Transition

I woke up again last night and thought I was sleeping outside and that I was on a boat. This has been happening ever since I got home from the Grand Canyon. While we were there, I would wake up during the night either hearing the noises of other campers or little critters in the area. It's the weirdest feeling not knowing where you are!!

This first picture is one of the many waterfalls we saw on our hikes. This one is of Havasu Falls. The pool underneath it was deep enough for swimming which felt great after hiking. The next two pictures are of our camp. The first one shows us all set up and cleaned up. The second one was day 2. This camp was a hot one!! Alex is lounging on one of the cots and I am trying to find a piece of shade.!! The temperature ranged from 85 to 105. It never felt that hot while you were traveling but once we put into camp around 4:30, you could feel the heat. Of course, we all helped unload the boat and then had to set up our cots and tents before dinner.

This is a picture of the boat we traveled on. All of our gear, the tents, the cots and all of the food and cooking utensils were on this rig. It's pretty amazing how they load everything on.

So now I am trying to get back in the swing of things. I have done 3 loads of laundry, gone to the supermarket and sorted through the mail. On the quilty side of life, I sat down and put together two rows of the mystery quilt.

Now that DH is gone to NJ for the weekend, I hope to get lots of quilty things done. I will post my progress on Sunday!!! have a great weekend, Blog gals!!!

Looks like such a fun trip and in such beautiful country. You'll be back in the swing before you know it.

Looks like you had a very good time, even though you also look very hot.
Funny how long it takes us to get back to the real world. Have you adjusted to solid land yet?

I know well the feeling of waking up somewhere else(or back home again) and wondering "now where the heck am I?"
