Lake Berryessa

This weekend Edward returned to Davis on his way back down from the Oregon Caves, where he went on a mini vacation with my mom and aunt and uncle. We decided to go to Lake Berryessa on the boat. Since the boat has been sitting out in the sun for the last 10 years the weight limit has faded away. So I looked it up online and found out it was only 600 pounds. After tallying up our weights I realized that even without the boat/car battery and all our stuff we'd be at 610 pounds. Oh well! We didn't sink (far from it) and had a grand time. Toward the end of the day, however, the wind picked up so it did take our dinky trolling motor longer to get us back to the launch ramp. The water was too cold for us humans to swim, but the dogs worn themselves out fetching sticks from the water.

We ate our traditional Nugget Market deli sandwiches and cookies on the beach and drank lots of homemade lemon-lime soda. Yummy! Even Potatoes got a little nibble of Dave's sandwich...

Edward made sure to tell me numerous times that I looked ridiculous in my maternity bathing suit. Whatever, he's just jealous that he doesn't look like a circus tent.
Going to the lake is always fun (more so when the water is warmer so we can swim). Hopefully Edward will get his own boat when he moves back to California so more of us can go fishing or venturing out on the lake for swimming.
