2011 Lake Shasta Day 1

For 24 straight years, I have spent a week every summer with the Tomasin's, Hunter's, Wallen's, Snipes and others. For the first 22 years, we stayed at the Dorado Inn at Lake Almanor. Last year, we switched to the Tsasdi Resort at Lake Shasta.

Jack and I left Elk Grove about 11:45 a.m. With one quick stop for a bite to eat, we rolled into the Tsasdi Resort a little before 3:00 p.m. After last Sunday's nine hour drive back from San Diego, this was a breeze. Sharon and Janie got to the resort about 20 minutes before we did.

The Wallen's were already there; they had already picked up a patio boat and were lounging on the dock. After getting both cars unpacked, we sat in our cabin and visited. After the studio last year, we shifted this year to a medium sized one bedroom (#18).

Tomasin rolled in a little before 6 p.m. Hunter was about 30 minutes behind him.

We eventually got the group pointed towards going to dinner at the Lakeshore Inn. We did not have dinner here last year. Unfortunately, the food was not very good; this is not a place that I recommend.

Tomasin, Wallen, Hunter, Debbie and I ended up playing pool in the bar. It was almost 1:30 a.m. by the time we got home!

This is going to be a little bit of a different year. Neither Drew or Morgan will be here. None of the Hunter kids will be making an appearance. Finally, the Bob Wallen herd are MIA. I have a longer trip planned in September so I am going to head back to work for a couple of days in the middle of the week.
