2008 Lake Almanor Day 6

For the second day in a row, Jack, Morgan and Drew slept until about 9 a.m. While they were sleeping, I went for a run along the Eastern Shore. When I got back, Jack and I took off for the Lake Almanor Recreational Trail. This trail runs for 9.5 miles along the western shore. We ended up riding our bikes a total of 12 miles. From my perspective, this ride was more difficult than Monday; although it is paved, it was a rolling trail with lots of up and downs that were steeper than the Bizz Johnson Trail.

Back at the cabin, Bachman recruited me to play horseshoes against Robby and David. We ended up getting beat two games to one. Uncharacteristically, Bachman was not throwing horseshoes very well. Robby and David went on to beat all of the old dogs, getting more cocky and bold as the day wore on. Robby has claims to the horseshoe championship until next year.

After I lost at horseshoes, I spent some time lounging on the boat dock with Hunter, Debbie, Wallen, Tomasin and Snipes trying to solve the world's problems.

While Jack and Drew played on the waverunners, I made a quick run to Chester. Rather than doing a dinner by myself, I committed to make drinks and hors d'oeuvre while the Bob Wallen's made dinner. I made fuzzy navels using Tomasin's recipe as the before dinner drink and shrimp quesadilla as the hor d'oeuvre.

The dinner ended up being very late. Kyle and Mary Rose made a great pork tenderloin for dinner, but it was after 8:30 p.m. by the time it was done.

Tomasin and I ended up splitting a couple of games of cribbage before I wandered off to get Jack to bed.
