I have spent the weekend trying to decide how to do this post. A week in Bass Lake, no matter how you slice it, is a big treat for me. I love this place. We had planned a long time for this trip, and hoped it would be perfect. It was not. It was a hard week. But we did have a lot of fun too. The kids had an absolute ball! DIRT. IS. THEIR. THING!!! They got along great, with a few fights and a few tears thrown in for good measure. Some were great helpers, and great campers. Some were not. Our next trip to Bass Lake will be in a cabin. On the water. With a dock. No more dry camping for a week. With a lot of people. Too hard. With that said, let's get to the photos. I forgot my camera TWO days in a row when packing for the boat the first two days we were there. Can you believe that? Me neither. But I did. I was so busy packing food, and towels, and suntan lotions, etc...etc...that I just forgot. So I missed some good photos, but the girls got what I missed, I think.
We got a later than usual start this year, and it proved to be a bad decision. Driving in the heat, in an RV, pulling a boat, with a caravan of other RV's and boats and cars and people, is never a great idea. Our trip took 9 1/2 hours. A little stop for lunch, a longer stop for some trailer repair, and we arrived with a whole day lost. So by the time we set up camp, we didn't have time to launch boats. Here we go.
The first morning, our nephew Don and his beautiful wife Kaylen arrived, bright and early. With a box of apple fritters and sprinkled donuts for the kids. Bless them!!!
So,we said goodbye to Tom and Jae, and the next day, my Mom and Uncle Chester and Aunt Claylene arrived.
We enjoyed two days on the lake while they were here. We ate a couple of times at The Forks. Wow...what a place. And the memories.......oh my. Here are a couple of pics of the fun we had while they visited with us.
I finished the last load of laundry last night at 10:00. Everything is put away, and I am in need of a little rest. See you tomorrow.
