The weather was perfect...the boats and jet skis were ready at the dock....and spreadsheets were created to plan daily menus and the numbers of guests we had each day. We "peaked" at 21 for a couple of days and most days had about 18.
The clubhouse fridge and freezer were packed...
|Our dear friends (and property partners) Heather and Don Moe joined us. Don (far right) had just driven down to Sandpoint on his motorbike and had a nap before the concert began.|
Finding parking in the shade was a challenge. We jokingly asked if people had their 2, 4, or 7 day pass..
|I went kneeboarding just to prove I still can. However, I hurt a lot more each year, but love the feeling of pushing my body and going over the wake.|
|The two most important, and loved, men in my life|
We managed to get a group shot of those who were here on Monday night.

|Beautiful Lake Pend O'Reille|
|Sunset on Lake Pend O'Reille|
|Colin, Karen and Cooper were the last to leave and we enjoyed a wonderful dinner on the lake with them.|
|Cooper has a great eye for photography and captured many of the memorable moments from the week --- including several of the pictures on this blog posting.|
|After a very busy week...having two huckleberry martinis was a perfect way to relax!|
I think I'll go have another nap!
