Picnic at Taite Creek

An Afternoon with our Son Robert

Photo Judging Contest

Robert having concluded his engineering work at a new silicone processing plant in Tennessee drove in his truck all across the USA to pay us a visit before flying back to Germany, where another assignment is awaiting.

The sun came out after the rain, and we decided to spend the afternoon at our favorite campsite. On the way Robert’s sharp eyes spotted two bears grazing in the meadows. I quickly took Biene’s camera and hid behind the bush to let the black and tan bears come a little closer, before I snapped the picture above.

To our surprise the entire campsite was vacant. So we chose our favorite site near the bocce field that many years ago our son Anthony had built for us near the beach below. There we had coffee and tea before playing a round of bocce.

For supper Biene had prepared a delicious stew and fixed up a salad from the lettuce freshly picked that morning in our garden.

On the beach Biene discovered a piece of driftwood and her competitive nature challenged us to take a picture of this duck-like wood sculpture.

Which of the three pictures do you like best? Your participation will be greatly appreciated.

It was getting late. So I was making a campfire, over which we made two batches of popcorn. What a way to finish a wonderful outing with our son Robert!

  1. Das sieht wirklich nach einem gemütlichen Tag aus, Peter, obwohl ich vor Bären etwas Angst hätte. Die Fotos 2 und 3 gefallen mit am besten. Gruß aus dem regnerischen Hamburg, Mitza

      • Gerne, Peter. Bei uns spielt das Wetter wirklich verrückt. Mal ist es kalt und regnet tagelang, dann wird es wieder ganz heiß und schwül, dann Gewitter… Vielleicht sollte ich in den Wilden Westen ziehen. Gruß Mitza

  2. What a great way to have some family time Peter. it’s nice to see your picture – a change from b & w /sepia tone we get to see more often. Lovely campsite. I would love to enjoy such beautiful environs… I’m jealous 😉

    • Each region on planet earth has its own pros and cons. In Canada you would have to get used to long, often hard winters. I am sure it would take some time for you coming from a warm climate zone to get used to them. From your blog I learned a lot about India’s culture and natural beauty. Yet, I could not live there, as it would be too hot for me. Thank you for your frequent visits to my blog!

      • Peter. it’s true that each region is unique. we have warm /hot climate for around 7 months. Winter is short and temperature dips to only 3-4 C so we do have winters but it’s not harsh like the one you experience in Canada with sub-zero temperature. You can visit India during November -February when weather is pleasant. This period is tourist Season here with large number coming from cold regions. It’s great reading your posts. Thanks for posting Peter! 🙂

    • Liebe Edda,
      Die Bilder hast du sehr diplomatisch beurteilt. Das war sehr lieb von dir. Ja, du kannst sehen, das war eine schöne Zeit mit Robert. Heute besucht er noch meine Schwester Lavana in Victoria, und dann beginnt wieder der Ernst des Lebens. Herzliche Grüße aus Kanada!
