Day 4.....

8:30 am - Saturday - June 13th - Island Park, ID - 62° F, 48% humidity, wind 6 mph out of the south by southwest.....mostly cloudy today with a forecast high of 68° F.  On this day in 2014 we were in South Lake Tahoe at the Getaway Cafe having breakfast.......


.....we rode our bicycles 5 miles out and 5 miles back....I miss South Lake Tahoe!

It's one of those rare days when I took absolutely no pictures, and neither did TLE.  We had plans to go hiking, but the wind came up unexpectedly, and TLE's allergies made an appearance scuttling the hike idea.

I worked on a couple of minor repairs which involved a minor amount of soldering, and set up the Sea-B-Que in preparation for the grilling of filet mignons that evening.  I considered, briefly, taking another bike ride, but the thought of riding into the very stiff wind in either direction held no appeal for me whatsoever.....even with the aid of an eBike.

As we edge toward the weekend the Bill Frome County Park also edges towards maximum capacity.  This is a very popular local access point for those who engage in the art of removing fish one at a time from the waters of Henry's Lake for personal consumption.....my brother-in-law, Claude, managed to extract a trout from the lake's edge this morning (Saturday) and provided this picture to memorialize his triump......


.....that is definitely a 'keeper' Claude!

Eventually the wind died around 6 pm, and I was able to grill the aforementioned filets to wonderful perfection.  TLE provided sides of mushrooms and barley along with grilled asparagus, and a wonderful Malbec which paired beautifully with the steaks and sides....we are really a good team.

Thus ended day 4 at Bill Frome County Park....thanks for stopping by!

  1. Nice fish Claude! The wind here is doing me in with allergies too! Uhh..I know how TLE is feeling! Yeah that wind would take the enjoyment out of a bike ride for sure, hoping today is better for you.
