For one, it's a huge lake. So huge, if a a person wasn't knowing where they were, you could easily expect to see the tide go out, standing on the shore!
Another, it's really a busy place. It pulls in a Lot of Boaters. They come from Spokane, and from across the border in British Columbia and Alberta. It's so busy you'd expect it to be crowded, but, that's where that size comes in I guess. You look around and you don't feel crowded.
Even the Deer are pretty comfortable here... Maybe... TOO comfortable?
I'm not a big one for staying a long time in a developed camp, dry camp or no... but, we've spent five days here on the banks of Pend Orielle and it's been nice... even the one windy, overcast day that had the surf shovin' rocks up on the shore. Big, the size of your fist, rocks! :)
But then the front passed, the sun came back and there was a nice, soft sunset...

First you get him comfortable, in the big water...
Then... you move to the Dock and he takes the "safe" way off the Dock... into shallow water...
... you keep inchin' him down the dock... jumping a lil' farther from the shore, each time...
... Until he's goin', pretty much... off the Deep end...
Now that's something I should likely stay away from huh? ... "Goin' off the Deep End?" :)
Yeah, well... I won't be holdin' my breath on THAT any!
Anyhoo... while they've been playin' at the Lake, I've gotten quite a bit more of the next book I'll be publishing put together... a couple more chapters closer to completion...
So... to keep from getting used to things runnin' smoothly, we'll be moving today! :) Heading into Washington State...
We'll be cutting across the Northern section, rolling toward the North Cascades National Park... and maybe turn a bit south toward Wenatchee... as always... I can say where I'm goin'...
... but the likelihood of it actually workin' out, just that way... is pretty darn thin! :)
My Dance card is fillin' up for the fall... Been wantin' to get back to the Olympic area since before last fall... Planning on seeing Mark and Bobbie around Anacortes... plan on clippin' Yellowstone again, on the way back through Denver for Heidi to go to a baby shower for our second grandkid... in October... and have to be in Phoenix... to be a NASCAR driver again :) in November...
... Sheesh!... I thought this "Full Timin' " gig was s'posed to be slow an' easy?
... and somewhere in amongst all that Goin' Slow... I have GOT to get that book buttoned up! :)
... maybe I can try some of those lil' bottles of energy pills they sell at the truck stops?
That's JUST what the west needs... a cranky old pussgut buster... roamin' 'round the west... hyped up on Energy Boosters! :)
Pickin' 'em up... and puttin' 'em down across the North Country

I know what you mean about Lake Pend Oreille being a pleasant place to be. My wife has been coming here since she was a child (40 some years) and myself for about 26 years. The most relaxing place in the world for me. BTW, I am the guy that was on the bike down by the dock. Keep on doing what you're doing. It was a pleasure meeting you in person.
Anacortes - that's a name/place we know well. It's where we board the ferry to Lopez Island. My cousins live on that island. Talk about a slow pace of living - it is:) We'll be headed that way next May as soon as we get our grandaughter graduated from high school in Denver:)
Snackmaster and Jan
The way you write is so refreshing. I appreciate you coming on board @ facebook "The Snarky Boomer". After reading your post I wonder if I made a mistake a couple days ago. I installed SEO widget on boomersberg.com and it wants you to have key word density. That may work great for these starched blogs on Yahoo or Huffington Post, but us common folk trying to write to those of like mind, key word stuffing can destroy my muse. I think I will pretty much ignore the thing and write it as I feel it. Glad to see you a NASCAR fan :>)
Finally found enough signal to respond a bit!
Neil; It WAS good meeting you there! If I sell a half a jillion books, I might could get convinced to buy a summer cabin there! :)
Snackmaster & Jan; We've not been to Anacortes yet. Though we really like it across the water over to Port Townsend, Port Angeles and points beyond... hoping for a good visit...
Adnama; Thank you! The SE's get cranky with folks that KEYWORD stuff too! That's one of the reason's I went, for my main websites with SBI. Their guidance and behind the scenes performance of all that "Computer stuff" has led me to where I am now... I'm still not computer literate... don't wanna be! :) but, that's not what it takes. It takes knowledge that people are hunting for, honesty and the scary part... finding the nerve to put your personality out there in front of folks...(The most intensely personal thing I've ever done)then having SBI to back me up and do that geeky computer stuff helps! :)
