|Our smokey view of Shuswap lake from the Scotch Creek Lookout Trail.|
Yoga has given way to higher pursuits in the form of 4 x 4-ing up to the Scotch Creek Look Out trail. This was a short 15 minute drive up into the hills behind the campground followed by a 1 hour, return, stroll through the forest. Low effort, high reward hiking!
The boys are busy with their bikes, legendary games of Uno, chips, and dips in the lake. Today, the gang rented a fancy pants pontoon boat to try their hand at tubing and mid-lake swimming. Nice.
Since that is not my thing we stayed back to provide the SS Pontoon with a pop-up hotdog stand at the campground dog beach. The hungry herd descended and devoured everything in sight.
Now for a lazy afternoon of cleaning up in preparation for our departure tomorrow and some quiet time.
|My 6:20 am crunching and munching visiting deer. . . . I was wondering who was walking through the brush between the sites so early in the morning.|
|An easy rolling forest trail.|
|We will have to do this again next year when the smoke has cleared.|
|The scene of Part 1 of the legendary Uno championships.|
|Naan Pizza - put any leftovers you can find on the naan and bbq for 5 minutes. Yum!|
|There is no shortage of things to watch at the beach.|
|The Mama's . . ....|
|And, the Papa's . . . .|
|Just a pink flamingo going by . . . . no big deal.|
|What is making all that racket in the tree above us? A friendly Pileated Wood Pecker.|
|Bailey going for one last swim in the setting sun and rising moon.|
|This morning Bailey guards the cooler bag and towel bag as the boys try to wake up early to catch a ride on the SS Pontoon boat.|
|And, they're up!|
|The advanced party acquired the craft and is now at the dog beach ready to pick up the gang.|
|Off they go!|
|And, they are back for lunch, whoa horsey!|
|Our pop-up hot dog stand is ready!|
|The hollow legs have been filled and they are off for round two.|
