Random Pic to Blog About
Since my Labor Day 2007 uploaded pictures don't have titles, and I had nothing to blog about of note, I picked a random picture from the file and here it is. This was dawn of Saturday. I woke up early (as usual) to go on a bike ride and the morning was so beautiful and the greatest thing about it was that H was outside sitting on the bench, just chillin', waiting for someone else to wake up (sound familiar - like me, when I was little?). So this is the beautiful view from the cabins' front door. You are looking out at Bear Lake, which just 10 years ago used to come up to the concrete water barrier/walls you see 15 feet in front of me(the frame of the picture). I wish they would let the water flow more (I guess they do have control over this) so that we can chill, nap, be at our cabins' front door while the kids splash around the water, float around on an inner tube, or swim out to the boat dock (shown here in the "boat launch"), all things we did as kids. Oh and skip rocks! The sand is great (which you get when we walk out to the "beach") but my kids are getting the beach confused with the real beach of my youth. And the pollution of the trucks and four-wheelers and increased boat and water-gear traffic was definitely grossing me out on this visit. It's interesting that I never thought my home town would change, that the land from L.A. to Mexico along the coast would ever be populated so fully and completely, and that places like Bear Lake would remain secret, safe, and quiet hideaways. Oh well.
