Dave had to leave early this morning to work at school. Paul's family had to leave early for Zack's baseball game this evening. Joanne, Jackie and Nick left this afternoon to fulfill prior commitments at home. Al stuck around a little longer to do (what else?) a little more fishing. Dave came back around 6 to pick up the camper and Al. The old folks are now alone at the Lake.

Here is a shot of some of the crew as they stop for a hearty lunch along a sandbar in the river. We've had plenty of rain so the river was generally plenty deep. We did find this shallow spot to make time for lunch. The day was sunny and the temperature was in the upper 70's with a nice breeze.
Brenda, Rachel, Brian and Logan, we missed you this year!

This past week I went out to hunt the wary blueberry. I know they grow in bogs, but I went out to the sandy barrens near our home because there usually aren't so many mosquitoes there. With all the rain we have had so far this spring and summer, I expected a super abundant crop. But for some reason they weren't 'everywhere'. It took some hunting to find a few and then a few lead to a few more. I'll let you in on my secret: I found the best patches of berries in the partially shaded areas. Please don't spread it around. I have picked a couple of quarts or more so far and I will plan to go some more this week.
