The kids came up this weekend, we had a family get together to send off to cousins on their respective missions (one to South Chicago, Spanish; the other to Austria/Germany).
While they were here we put in the final plans for a vacation later this month. We reserved our place months ago and now we get to figure out exactly how we want to do nothing with our time there.
Convict Lake, Twin Lakes, June Lake (and the infamous "loop of Liberals!") A mandatory trip out to Bodie with the one (of four...wah) grandkids who will be able to attend. A trip to the tufas on Mono Lake, and also a picnic in Bridgeport, which I think is one of the prettiest little towns. I once thought it would be great to just drop everything and move there; until I heard they are literally snowed in during the winter months. This is also where the Marines, et al, decided to train for battle in snow. I am not a snow person.
The trip is planned to include as much fishing as possible. See that guy in the photo? (I know where he lives and where he hides!) When I see him this year I will be sporting my camera, but also my new pink fishing rod! Watch out, here I come!
