August 2 – And, after lunch into the lake. I am always amazed that rivers, streams, and lakes that don’t come from snow run off (like in the Sierra’s) are very pleasant for swimming. The day was breezy but the water was nice. Too bad we didn’t get any photos of Gabe jumping off the platform in this photo. Initially he was a bit shy of being in the water but after some “big boys” started jumping off the platform he was all over that idea. He kept jumping long after the boys were all out of the water. It is past time for swimming lessons.
