Today is our actual anniversary, it has been 36 years, today.
I graduated from high school one weekend and got married the next.
I knew he was the one for me, so why wait and I think I made the right decision;)
Today we went to Burlingame State park to paddle. I camped there as a child, and we took our kids there, so it is a place filled with happy memories. It was a beautiful day, warm with a breeze and no crowds.
And I am sure this is what you all want to see, haha. This is the launch site, beautiful pond that covers 1,000 acres.
We paddled the entire shoreline, so not quite sure how long that is in miles, but it was a good workout.
Half way around the pond is a beach at the old campground. This was the wilderness side, pit toilets and no showers. They closed it down when someone almost burned half it down. It is a great place to stop, have lunch and take a swim and we were the only ones there.
The park is also home to over 250 species of birds. Of course they were all hiding today. That and the fact that Bill always has to paddle in front of me and startles everything away, before I get there. This guy was sitting on a rock, watching the world go by. I had to use full zoom in a rocking boat, so the picture looks a bit strange.
We went around the pond along to the campground side and stopped at the last beach which doesn't allow swimming. I wasn't swimming, I was just cooling off in the water;) This little guy found us as interesting, as we did, him.
Now for the giveaway. Guess how many years we have been married? You don't have to be right, just guess and I will draw a name from the entries. The winner will get a free epattern from my ecrater site. I will draw a winner on Saturday night.
Tomorrow the weather man said no rain till late in the afternoon, so I think we can get in one more paddle before the rain comes.
