A Good Day

Spent Sunday out at the lake. Probably the last time I'll be out there this season. We celebrated a couple of birthdays, drank lots of beer (I'm finding myself increasing my "limit"...gotta watch that), and ate like trailer park trash at Golden Corral. It was a gorgeous day--all sun, not a cloud in the sky, and just a hint of breeze. Beer pong. That variation of cornhole that they play. XMSirius playing the 70s station. Football. Jet skis. Storytelling (the ones that my sisters didn't want their kids to hear). Visitors from all over the lake stopped by, so there was a steady stream of new people. Most of whom I didn't know. The only one missing was Mom, who was out in Portland visiting S1 for the weekend. All in all, a great way to put a cap on summer.

Note the difference in lake level/beach! Pics on the left from 4th of July weekend. The ones on the right are from Sunday! (click 'em to big 'em!)

(Note the stump in the water on the very far left, and its location on the beach this weekend!
It's stuck in the sand, so it didn't move--just the water!)

(The waterline of July is the end of the beachline in September!)

(The beach, and the arrival of a neighbor's party barge!)

(Cabin at the top, bunkhouse to the right)

(The outhouse (carpeted, no less!), the bar, and about 20% of the coolers that were scattered around.
Can't have the beer too far from reach!)

An outhouse with carpet?! Damn, that's fancy.

Glad you had such a great time... x

That is a huge difference in water level!

Love the cabin- looks cozy. Yeah- outhouse with carpeting hmmm; not sure I am crazy about that idea.
