19th Anniversary on Priest Lake

Had a great 2 days on Priest Lake at our friend's Don and Mary Shea's lake house. They took Barb and I out for a boat ride today. Priest Lake is absolutely gorgeous this time of year and the water is clear and looks just like the Caribbean! Their boat is on a rail system that winches it out of the garage and down a rail system right into the lake. Very cool! We took their German Shepard Schatz along for the ride. Mary baked a special birthday/anniversary cake for us...mmmm

Sunset Dinner Cruise & Wooden Boat Show

Bus friends Rick & Joni from Coos Bay Oregon stopped by for a 4 day visit so we took them on a sunset dinner cruise and a tour of the annual CDA Wooden Boat Show. The dinner cruise was fantastic and we got a closer look of Duane Hagadone's new house. His new sailboat was also at the boat show. 60' of glorious woods and it can be sailed by just one man (or woman) Barb said :P Monday we head up to Priest Lake for an overniter at our friends Don & Mary Shea's lake house to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary.

Seaplane Morning

Got up this morning and the rain had finally stopped :) Beautiful Sunday morning so we headed for our walk around the boardwalk. Noticed the Brooks Seaplanes sitting just waiting for a rider. I had planned on taking Barb up next week for our 19th anniversary, but the lake was smooth, the sun was shining, and the blue sky was awesome. So we jumped on board for a fantastic 30 minute trip around the lake! We even flew over the condo on the landing approach. Now we know why we love it up here in the summer!
