Camping at East Lake

This past Sunday we packed up the truck and headed down to East Lake to our favorite campground. We weren't able to get our favorite site, but we got the one next to it which worked out just fine.

We met Norman & Dave there a little past noon and we had the rest of the afternoon to lounge around on the beach and to cool off in the water.

After an entire week of mid 90 degree temperatures in Bend, it was nice to be at the lake for some relief. After a great afternoon in the sun, we started Happy Hour at a little past 6:00.

Here's the camp site we had. It may be hard to see in this photo, but Norman & Dave brought a huge tent that we were thankful to have later that night.
Kelly, Norman & Dave on the beach. As you can see here, the blue skies from the afternoon were soon overtaken by storm clouds. We watched & listened to the approaching thunder storm for well over an hour.
About 5 minutes after Kelly & Norman went back to refill our drinks, Dave & Dave felt the first of the raindrops. They gathered up all our belongings and got back to camp just as the heavy rains began.
Here's Kelly, Norman & Dave in the McMansion. There was actually a queen size air mattress behind Kelly and this photo was taken from the enclosed entryway.
We were so glad to have this much space to hangout in, since it never did stop raining the rest of the night.
The next morning we awoke to another beautiful sunny day.
