2006 Almanor Day 2

Sunday was a lazy morning. I got up early and went for a four mile run north of the resort. No one was moving very fast. Several different groups spent the morning visiting, drinking coffee, kibitzing and making breakfast.

Finally in the late morning, several of the boats started out on the lake. Unfortunately, by then, the lake was getting choppy. Jack, Drew and I ended up going out on the lake with Hunter, Loren and her friend Loren.

We cruised up the lake to check out the area where the Hamburger Hut used to be. From there, we headed to Big Cove to scout out other places to buy gas on the lake. After a long stop to swim in the lake and cool off (We had trouble getting Hunter's boat restarted!), we headed south along the east side of the peninsula.

We headed around the point and to the west side of the lake to a cove where Hunter thought it would be calmer. Jack made several attempts to get up on two skis.

We headed back down the western shore past Plumas Pines looking for Carol's, a grill just off the lake in Prattville. We stopped there and walked up to the restaurant. The grill had shut down at 2:00 p.m., but they were still serving dell sandwiches.

After having lunch, we headed back to the Dorado Inn. In total, we spent more than four hours on the lake. It has been a number of years since I cruised that much around the lake.

The owners of the Dorado Inn have a social hour on Sunday nights. Afterwards, the Bob Wallen's made dinner for the group.

I ended the night playing blackjack with Jack and working to get him to bed before 10 p.m.
