Hello, dear friend! I’m glad we could catch up before the weekend is over.. What a fabulous Father’s Day weekend! We camped at Bishop Lake with our family and really lucked out with the weather, with just a few showers early Sunday morning. Even though we had a typical short Friday through Sunday stay, we felt like we got away and did something. Our family is still there until Tuesday and enjoying a campfire right now. (crying) #jelly
But we got to enjoy Friday and Saturday night in my favorite position, so I won’t complain.
I made reservations for horseback riding for Saturday, a surprise Father’s Day gift for Bill. We had a very good day – the trails were in the woods so we spent much of the ride in the shade. He rode Tonto and I rode Tulsa. Really a nice venue and the staff is wonderful!
Then I got to paddle with my Awesome Nieces! We went out to Caroga Lake and back, just a short ways off Bishop Lake through that very cool canal I had explored over Mother’s Day weekend. It was later in the day and the skies started to brew some darker weather, but we made it back in time.
We experimented with a fire snake – more to come on that in my Camp Cooking series (who says it has to be food?) and cooked baked potatoes and steaks over the fire. Sunday morning came and I slept in until almost 10am! Must have needed it. I wanted to paddle again for a bit and didn’t have the time – DNR came around and gently nudged us along as our site was reserved for an incoming 3pm check in.
Now it’s back to the work week, but we’ve got a road trip planned for this upcoming weekend. Oh Summer, how I wish you could stay forever..
How was your week?
