|A view of Shasta dam from the lake.|
|Shasta is the fourth largest dam in California.|
|Downstream from the Shasta Lake and Dam. |
The Sacremento River
We tried to walk across the dam but only went a short distance before turning around.
|Maltese dogs are sensitive to cold weather and I didn't bring Lexie's sweater. |
I shared my hoodie with her.
The breeze in the lake and dam area were really fragrant and I can only guess it's all these yellow blooms seen in the pictures. Leaving the area, I tried to get a close shot of one of the many bushes growing along the roadside.
Rain started that evening and lasted for two days straight. We watched movies, worked on the computer, took naps, ate everything we could find. That's some stretch of boredom.
|Even Lexie was bored with all this rain.|
Six daily walks in pouring rain were no fun but Lexie has a bright orange raincoat with a hood.
She doesn't love wearing it.
On our 9th day we were joined by friends Tom and DJ who we met in Maine last summer. Tom and DJ are enjoying their new motorhome for some extended RVing.
|Clean that windshield, DJ!|
|Our electrical-minded DJ.|
|Tom is a "sit down" cook. Wayne supervises.|
|Fish salad, pan-fried fish, fish chowder, green salad, garlic bread and pecan pie! Yum. |
Yup. Rednecks bring the toaster oven outside to bake.
