On Sunday, we went to a nearby lake with my father-in-law. This was my first time at this lake. For local readers, it's at Lake Natoma in Folsom. The weather was nice. A bit sunny with some nice winds.
Once there we had a picnic and enjoyed watching people row in their kayaks, long surfboards?, peddle with some sort of funny floater, sailing or just plain old SWIM across! Oh dear lord! This is a lake people not the beach. Those swimmers must be athlete to do this.
My son dropped a huge chunk of bread into the water. It was a feeding frenzy between 2 geese! lol
What surprised me was my Sandy. She drank some water and then step into the water. My dog. The one that is TERRIFIED of water. She went as deep as half her legs. She seemed to enjoy the cool water though.
We then went for a walk up the dog trail. It was nice and peaceful. We saw some people that were fishing at the edge. Sandy kept leaving her mark everywhere. Just how much pee does a dog have after it goes potty? Where does she store it? lol
After a quick snack and rest, we all went home. I got a bit sunburn on my forehead and top of my shoulders. The kids were ok so that's all it matters. We'll be coming again this summer. My father-in-law would like to rent a boat next time. Gulp. For a non swimmer, this scares me. I have been on a boat before but this was years ago. I'm sure my kids would love it though. Maybe next time.
