The day was mild, sunny and clear. It was not too warm, but sweatshirts or windbreakers were enough to keep the chill off. I zoomed in a bit and took this picture of the resort cabins:
With Paulina Peak in the background, there was a boat heading toward the campground boat launch as we passed by:
Our destination was the red rock slide on the shore across the lake:
After getting to our spot, lowering the anchor and getting settled, we fished. Neither of us caught anything that day, though we did get several bites ... one was big enough to actually break Cary's favorite pole!
I have just as much fun taking pictures when I am not actually reeling anything in.
We were enjoying watching the birds play and chipmunks scurry around. They paid us no mind, and seemed to be enjoying the last days before the cold weather arrives. Just like we were.
I noticed the memorial plaque on this rock next to shore. After I got home, I enlarged it to read the inscription, which says, "In Loving Memory of John Dyer. Fishing in Heaven"
This picture shows the expanse of The Big Obsidian Flow. I did a blog post about it a couple of years ago. If you want to read it, please "CLICK HERE".
It was time to start heading back.
We had a fun afternoon. Today or tomorrow, we need to go back and bring the boat back home. We sure did enjoy the lake this year.
Hope that you all have a wonderful weekend!
