The last days of the year, I went to visit a friend who runs a camping site. It`s the time of the year when she is awfully busy and help doesn`t come till January so I promised to give her a hand while there. It`s not that she asked for my help but it was my way of saying thanks for all the good things she always did for me. And it was also a pause, a retreat.
After my first cup of coffee, I watered the plants. Well, the ones at the entrance since it`ll be awfully difficult to go with the hose in the mountain!!
The poor plants suffered from the heat and the lack of rain so we had a talk every morning in which I promised them plenty of water in exchange of their bright colors. We honored our promise.
Once I had talked to all of them, I went to the kitchen area for a cup of ice tea and shared it with two of the most important inhabitants of the site.
My next chore was to sweep the pool and after that make sure that I had done a good job so it took me an hour of swimming to double-check that the bottom of the pool was completely clean 🙂 Nobody can say I`m not thorough.
After lunch I usually took a nap in the hammock, one of my favorite places to read a book. And one of the fresher at that time of the day!!
Sometimes, I had company
When the sun went down I usually went for a walk.
She was two days old in this picture, was born on X-mas! but every time I came close, they run …
All good things come to an end and I had to fly back home.
This is how I started this new year.
