Elk Lake, with South Sister in the background

Last weekend, we enjoyed another visit with my family in Bend, Oregon.  On Saturday, June 20th, we spent the day at Elk Lake.  The lake is located just a few miles past the Mt Bachelor ski area, so it took less than an hour to drive there.

We found a shady spot under a tree and set up chairs and such.

My aunt Ginny (Todd’s great aunt, from Texas) was with us, too.  She took this picture that she called “Todd’s Selfie.”

My nephew and niece (Todd’s cousins) took their inflatable boat out for a while.

My parents started doing stand up paddleboarding a few years ago while vacationing in Kauai.  Now they do it at home, too.  Here’s my mom with one of their boards.

Todd seemed eager to do something other than hanging out in the inflatable inner tube.

Here’s a short movie showing how the place looks, in a partial panorama.

 

Ashley took Todd for a walk to water’s edge.

I hung out on the blanket with my buddy.  When Todd wasn’t trying to feel and taste the sticks, pine needles and such, he had some “formula milk.”

My mom took Ginny out for a ride on the paddleboard.  They’re sisters.

Then I tried stand up paddleboarding for the first time.  It was fun!  I went out with Karin.  We’re sisters, too.

Finally– Todd got on a paddleboard for the first time.  He went out for a short ride with his uncle.  He also checked out the lake water.  Jason said that the faster the board moved, the more excited Todd got.  (Sounds like him–  he’s a guy who needs to be moving!)
