Fun in Ft. Bidwell

Lily Lake and friends

sunny 70 °F

Fathers Day was a rather lazy affair.

Bekki had suggested that we make a trip to Lily Lake, a lake just west of Ft. Bidwell, in the mountains. We packed up kids, food and wine into their car and drove up the dirt road to the lake. The road had several downed trees that had to be driven around and one spot where Dale put some branches over the edge of the road to be used to drive on.

We were surprised that quite a few people were at the lake, it seemed so remote to us.

We’d forgotten a corkscrew so asked around if anyone had one. One guy came over with an awl and a screwdriver. As Dale was pulling the cork out with the awl, the guy came back with pliers, in the event,IMG_20160619_133016188.jpgIMG_20160619_135032354.jpgIMG_20160619_144000544.jpgIMG_20160619_145044525.jpg Dale could use them. We offered him a glass of wine but he preferred the beer he brought.

In the evening, we went down to Nate’s closest neighbor as she had invited several people over for dinner. She is listed in a directory for people who want to do some organic farming and 3 women were working with her, one brand new and another who’d been there for a few days. It was great to meet new people, ones who are so involved and kind to our kids, not to mention, have some great food.
