Day at Kirkwood

Yesterday we took a drive up to Kirkwood to drop off our canoe and walk into the Girl Scout camp and say hi to some of our friends. We stopped in Ione where you can see the Preston Castle. This excited Deirdre because this was a place that was on Travel Channel's "Ghost Adventures". Then on to Lake Kirkwood, we walked into camp, played in the canoe and headed home. Our trip couldn't be really done without something happening! Mom's truck started to have problems, so by 9:30pm, we were calling Carl to come rescue us! We stayed the night at his house in Elk Grove and today, did what we had to in order to get mom's trucked towed back to Antioch. We are exhauseted! Here are the pictures I took...........

Me and Deirdre at the Preston Castle plaque.

Deirdre and her hiking buddy.

Waiting or pouting..........I don't remember!

Deirdre wanted to go out on the trail for 11 days with the SuperPackers! She even got a map!

The beauty at Kirkwood.

Deirdre and Lady Bug. Now, Lady Bug was one of my Waterbugs about 18 years ago. I can't believe she is now a counsoler!

My attempt to get a picture of all 3 of us in the canoe.

Love this pic!

Always having to throw a few rocks in the lake.
