Look Who Came For Supper

We really enjoyed the spot we were in here at the park, but our neighbors really enjoy a camp fire.....from 7:00 AM until who knows when.  And it wasn't a fire. It was just smoke. All day. Smoke found it's way inside our rig even with the doors and windows closed, our clothes smelled like a campfire... Finally about 4:00 this aft we asked the ranger if we could move to a different spot and he said no problem.  While we were setting up, I saw two deer. 

By the time I got my camera and got outside, the "family" was now nine! They all looked like they were molting. Sort of shaggy deer.

They were in no hurry and didn't seem to be afraid of anyone. There is a small meadow just a few yards from us. That is where they chose to have their supper and rest. We were told by one of the other long term campers here this is a daily ritual. 

So now we are settled in to our new spot. No camp fire smoke. I don't mind a little smoke around the campfire but all day is just too much. And oh, a lot of the time the couple were inside their rig.

Another pretty Sunriver Sunset.

  3. Good gosh! Stunning how clueless some people are! Lived in Oregon for years & never went to Sunriver--have to put it on the list. I grew up near the first John Gray development--Salishan--and love it! Enjoy the sunshine!

  4. Nice to have that company for dinner, but like you said sometimes just too much smoke. Enjoy your stay there.

  5. isn't it just lovely to experience God's creatures in their natural environments. . .it's just ruined the whole zoo experience for me.

    I love a good campfire too, but my asthma simply will not allow the enjoyment. . .so like you, we would have needed to move.

    The park looks lovely. . .enjoy!

  9. It's always fun to see the deer hanging around. Good thing you got to move away from the smoke. If the offenders were inside, their fire should have been out - no question. Campfires should never be left unattended. Hope you are getting some of this nice sunshine we are enjoying in Eugene today.
