Hot enough for ya?????

Well, the heat is definitely here. I spent all of Thursday on Scotts Flat, in the kayak and in the water, which by the way is PERFECT TEMP (according to me!). The lake is unbelievebly full, as was discussed with the ice cream guy at the boat ramp by the harbor. He agreed that it hasn't been this full in years. There are really cool swimming inlets everywhere.
I always try to remember to bring cash to grab a quick ice cream treat to gear me up for the paddle back across to Cascade Shores ramp. Great selection of treats at the bait shop!
I went to Leslie and Keith Kearns baby shower today, at their home across from Pioneer Park pool. They are expecting their first (a girl) and it will be Olivia Diaz's first grandbaby. Congrats to all. Olivia and Ernie live at the corner of Pasquale and Nugget St., and reported having a yearling bear just a hangin' around the neighborhood for the past week. He/she scored on the neighbors garbage can, so probably will be back (their side of street is a bit of a bear path to the canyon below.) So, remember, if you have something really smelly for the garbage can (like fish wrappings or shells) you might want to freeze them until garbage day. Otherwise, even a young bear can rip off a garage door to retrieve said smelly stuff!
Speaking of Pioneer Park Pool, some of the kids from the baby shower went over to cool off in the pool, and when they returned, the "adult in charge" advised that the entire pool can be rented for $60 per hr. What a great place for a kids pool party! Last summer I took my little niece & friend for the Thursday evening games and movie night. That was major fun, and the kids won prizes for competing, stuff like standing on your head in water. Big fun!
