…degrees today. I am glad I am near a lake. As Doug and Sue pointed out in the comments a couple posts ago”
“…from snow to swim in how many days???”
Well, to be exact, 10 days since the last snow. 28f/-3c 10 days ago and snow. Today 81f/27c and swim! *woot*
Andrew was sleeping by 7:30 last night. We were going to have some marshmallows with him, but his eyelids were too heavy, and he was out before we could light a match. Oh well, Traci and I had a nice fire (no marshmallows) and just enjoyed the sunset (see last post) the birds (this is an amazing area for birds) and the flames. I am pretty sure I'm not alone when I say I really like watching a campfire.
This is Lake Newell Resort. Real houses masquerading as cottages, This one makes me relaxed just looking at it. This is where the phrase “a boatload of people” came from. This is oil country afterall, Lots of BIG trucks. Took this right from my chair at the campfire. Yes… this.kid.is.peeing. A different perspective of the sunset. The girl on the left is actually sitting in a Kayak. Pleasant.
I spoke with the boss, and we have an extra day out here. So while we watch all the other people pack up and leave to drive on some very busy highways, back to where ever they come from, we will be on the beach. We have a wiener roast booked for noon, swimming all afternoon and then Tinfoil dinners over the fire for supper, then Marshmallows. We may even get a nice bird watching hike in. Sounds like fun, don’t you think?
