Yesterday, we went down to Lake Pleasant for a picnic with Wannabe and my next younger sister, Maxine. But, it turned out that Maxine couldn't come because her husband, Ed wasn't feeling well. There was Wannabe, dr and myself, Dan and Laurel and Avery, and two of Maxine's daughters, Sharon and Laura and their families and later Maxine's son Eddie and his wife. So there were about 20 people there for most of the time. dr and I went down early because the picnic ramada's are on a first come basis and you need to get there early or there aren't any left. There are quite a few ramada's with only one picnic table but we wanted a larger one with four tables. We found one but it wasn't right on the lake. There was a path down to the lake but I didn't go down to the lake. The path was quite a bit steeper and rockier than I wanted to do. Wannabe didn't want to go down either. But, the kids ran up and down the path and weren't even puffing and out of breath. I told one of them she wasn't doing it right. She is twelve. She came running up the path. I told her, "Rachel, you didn't do that right." She asked me why. I told her she should be all out of breath and puffing after running up that path. She just grinned at me. Her mom says she's planning on running a triathlon this summer. I suppose at twelve I could run like that, too. Some of the kids went swimming but I thought it was a bit cold for it. I didn't even take my long sleeve shirt off. Most of the people were wearing shorts and t-shirts. But, I am usually cold. I am not a winter person at all. It was a bit windy and we had to anchor things with rocks. The kids thought that was great fun and brought more rocks than ten picnics could use. We talked, the kids swam and played and some people took pictures. I had the camera but didn't take many pictures. I took my binoculars but there weren't too many birds to watch. The kids had fun using them to watch the boats. So, all in all we had a good day. We left and come home about 4 pm. It takes a good hour to get up the hill from there. I was tired and we just had a sandwich for supper. I did take a couple of pictures but not great ones for sure. I was hurrying because talking was a priority yesterday. dooley

Oh what glorious scenery Dooley and it looks as though you had great weather too.
Looks like you had a wonderful day! I love the treeless hill on the other side of the lake. It reminds me of a mountain lake above the tree line here.
What a fabulous time you must've had surrounded by those you love. These are the days that make life worth living!
Sounds like you had a great day. Picnics are fun but I haven't been on one in years. Pretty lake.
