Sunday was a beautiful day here at the campground.  I awoke bright and early to a rosy glow in my bedroom.  I know what that means!  So I grabbed my camera, and out the door I bounded, dressed in blue and white striped pj bottoms with a lovely gray long sleeved college T-shirt.  Bare feet.  This is the scene that I found!  What a beautiful beginning to a beautiful day!

And I recited the requisite 'Red sky at night, sailors delight.  Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning.'  But it wasn't really red - more orange than red - so I don't think anyone had to take warning.  I just have to say that poem at colorful sunrises and sunsets.  It's required.  

Then the beautiful day continued.  The food was prepared, the scene set.  And Favre came through for the Vikings!  We watched and cheered through the game - between bites of  taco salad, re-fried beans, fresh veggies, fruit salad, and peach pie and vanilla ice cream.  I loved one of the headlines I spied this morning:
TEXAS TOAST: Vikings burn Dallas!
Then later, as the next game began, we looked out the window to see this in the sky.  A fellow camper was taking advantage of the beautiful day and was flying her kite.  Neat against the blue sky, isn't it.

All in all, it was a beautiful day!  Look out we come!

Floyd and I saw the same beautiful sunrise yesterday and we also said the Red skies at night thing. You are right--it is a requirement of seeing that. Glad to hear your weather straightened out.It has been gorgeous here all along but this whole week we have a chance of rain. That is ok though then I feel more like doing "inside stuff"

After all the cold, rainy, dreary days it is so refreshing to see a beautiful sunrise or sunset. We had a beautiful sunset here yesterday! I wish I could have taken a picture but I missed it.
Thanks for visiting my blog and for your nice comments.
Have a great day!
