A few of the guys went fishing and caught lots of fish. Most of them were a pretty good size, about 20 inches. A few were smaller, about eight inches.
The next day we went the rest of the way up to Redding. It was nice to break the trip up a little. Outside of Sacramento we drove past rice fields.
After Redding was Lake Shasta.
Then we got to the house. We played pool...
There were wild Bing cherry trees (a neighbor picked some for us--they were good!),
and of course berries everywhere.
There was a train track between the house and the river so there were lots of trains.
There was a giant nut tree,
wild sweet peas
and other flowers.
We visited the Castle Crag State Park and got a good shot of the Crags
and Mt. Shasta.
We also visited the Sundial Pedestrian Bridge in Redding.
There was wild life...
and more trains.
Good food, good drinks, good company, good times. I think I would rate this the best vacation I've had all year!
