What a great time we had this year at the 5th Annual Lake Hope weekend!!! Friends, food (I am pretty sure there are pics somewhere of a large pork tenderloin and deep fried turkey along with 30 ears of corn for our Saturday night meal.), nature and great conversation were abundant as usual. This year our hostess, my best friend Patty, made arrangements at Laurel Lodge instead of at indiviual cabins for our large group. We loved it! The consensus was to make those arrangements again for next summer.
The guys were there early on Friday fishing as well as early Saturday AM. Mitch and I decided to do the mountain bike trails. What an experience. To say the least...the map was a bit of a disappointment. One of the trails turned into a creek, which then turned into a swamp. Not to mention the trail was a bit muddy from rain earlier in the week. We were a muddy, wet mess by the time we got back. Luckily, we ran into Julie and Gary and hitched a ride back from the boat docks. I don't think I would have been able to do the steep road work after the 3.5 mile excursion in the forest. (I need to get the picture of Mitch and I after our ride uploaded from my camera.)
Here is a picture of my friend Patty and I. Good times. Good friends. Good food. What more could you ask for? Looking forward to next year!
