We had the best time last night. A group of friends, invited us to
go out on their boats and have dinner on the lake. YAHOO !!
Stan and Pam picked us up about 5:30 and we followed our other
friends, Lou and Yola and Lou and Lola to the lake. Yes it's
Stan, Pam and Sam, Lou and Lou and Yola and Lola and JS.
When you pull into the park, you have to pay at a machine.
The sun was hitting on the face of it and you couldn't read
the instructions. So picture four old guys, all huddled around
this machine, with their hats off, trying to block the sun.
Meanwhile, a line of young guys with their souped-up trucks
and souped-up boats are waiting for the old guys with their
standard truck and 1970's boats to "move"
It was at this point, that we wives realized that non of the old
guys where very computer savvy. If the machine would have
had tires, this wouldn't have been a problem. After the
hold up, the boat launching was smooth and uneventful.
Boats loaded and everyone in, we started off.
How Beautiful !!! The lake is full to the treeline, the water
was smooth, no wind, it was perfect......
The plan was to go see Feather Falls. The lake is so full that you
can boat right up to them, but as we were crossing the main body
of the lake, Lou's boat started to over heat. We stopped.
The "Old Guys" decided instead of going the hour it would take
to the falls, we would just have dinner in a near by cove.
No one was really disappointed, it was so perfect out and
just happy to be on the lake. Even saw a mama deer
with two babies, with spots.
The rest of the evening was spent in the cove with the two boats
tied together. We dinned on sandwiches, potato salad, fruit salad
and brownies. The company of good friends, a cold beer
and of course Lou's great wine.
"We are Truly Blessed"
Lou's boat died on the way back, and Stan had to tow him in.
It added to the fun and memories.
