A Day Out at the Lake After a Long Rest

It was a long week due to the stomach flu, but I got through it. Actually, I was well enough by Thursday, but I had to play catch-up on the all my chores that I neglected while I was under the flu’s spell. So, once caught up, me and Suz. went out into town, and off to the lake to bask in the sunshine, to work on our tan. But it was cool out, with a threat of showers, depending on where you were in the valley. But in all, a very nice day to spend at the lake, on a Sunday afternoon–the place was all most void of people–it was awesome!

This was almost the shot I waited for, our feet planted in the sand by the lake, but as you can see, it was cool, so we wore our shoes–better than nothing I guess. Nonetheless, It was a warm sunny day, so we sat by the water’s edge, collecting the Sun’s rays, perhaps working on our skin cancer, but it felt good. There was a bit of wind too, which made for chilly moments, but still just nice enough to sit and enjoy the lake side. So here is the shot of our feet in the sand. Oh, and that is Furlong Beach Sand at our feet!

Work went well to, although I had some over-time towards the end of the week, but nothing too drastic. It seems to be getting busier, in terms of more appointments and orders, but nothing I could not complain about. I can still manage everything by myself, with time to spare at the end of the day. My work is going well, and I must say, I enjoy it. I wish I found this employment years ago. Maybe I found Utopia?

Anyway, back to the day at the lake. In the morning, there was a few rainy periods in some areas in the Skeena Valley, so I guess everyone though it would be a bummer day at the lake. When we got there, around three o’clock in the afternoon, Furlong Beach had only a few people around it, so we were almost alone where we were. It was great–sunshine and beach–it was almost perfect. But this month has been cool, especially when we just came out of an awesome May with above average temperature. Rest assured, most times in June around here are filled with rain, it is normal up here on the North Coast. SO when the cloud part, you take advantage of it.

We sat on Furlong Beach for a while, then walked around, over the docks. There were some sail boats out on the lake. The sail boaters seemed like they were having a great time too, as there was lots of wind to sail with. Lakelse Lake has some good winds on it–even the para-sailors (people riding on water skies being pulled by a para shoot) were out enjoying it as they zipped along with lots of speed.

Yes, it was a great day for dogs too, as these boaters launched away with their dog happily sitting in the middle getting a free ride. I am sure if they could get their dog to paddle, they would have. They moved quite fast in the plastic boat too–I was surprised. And the dog never flinched as they moved through the waves.

It was a great day. Glad I got out with Suz. We are counting down the days as summer nears, officially.
