Almanor Day 4

Normally we spend a week at Lake Almanor. This year, we decided to do a two week trip to Florida as well as part of Almanor trip during the break between Jack's summer school and the start of first grade. We got up this morning and started packing and cleaning up the cabin.

After getting almost everything packed and loaded in the truck, I went down and got Tomasin to take Jack and I out on the boat one last time. Jack went in the tube and ended up getting soaked.

We took off about 10:15 a.m. Heading down the Feather River Canyon, we made one quick stop in Oroville and were back in Elk Grove by 1:30 p.m.

I cut this year's trip to Lake Almanor short with a heavy heart. Since 1985 when we went to Lake Trinity with this group, I have wandered through some personal trials and tribulations. The one thing that has been constant through all of these years has been this group of friends and this annual trip to the Lake has been a touchstone for that friendship.
