I have achieved sandal tan.
Last night we arrived in Redding 11pm.
Today we spent all day out at Whiskeytown lake…floating around, splashing each other, eating, tubing on the boat (never done this before!)
Eureka, this is summer. I have a sunburn in the places i couldnt get my sunblock and the start of a nice tan elsewhere.
we parked the boat and swam around jumping in, munching on sub sandwiches. And thank Heaven…at 8 pm it was 109 here. It got up into the teens. The lake was the only place to be.
Photo essay to follow. Tommorrow we are on to Crescent City for the Redwoods and the beach. Y’all, I am so happy, this IS my summer.
