Got up at 0500 due to wind pulling hard on the awning.  Put that up and went back to bed to finally get up at 1000.  We took a long walk on the bike path.  Gracie had her first ride on a bicycle.  She is too large for Mom's front basket.  Every move changes the dynamics of the front fork and causes severe wobble.  We had a great fire in cool temperatures.  The mayflies are out again.  Millions and billions of them.

With the new reservation system you are supposed to be out by 1300 hours.  We managed a nice bike ride and a walk with the dogs.  Fritz decided to sniff the lake.  She fell in.  It was very obvious that she intended to fall in.  At any rate, she STINKS.  We got home in good order.

See the site map for details on the best sites (the ones next to water).
