We had a nice time on Lake Patterson while I skippered us around on a sunfish. I could do that with my limited sailing experience because, well, we had little to no wind!

Our friends Gay and Mary Ann moved to Mazama a few years ago and know all there is to do around here. Boat rentals on Lake Patterson include the sunfish that we rented for an hour, plus kayaks, pedal boats, motor boats and Stand Up Paddle (SUP) boards. This will be on our list for anytime we are over here. Qhite a fine find.
Our potential plan to go tubing down the Methow River did not happen as the weather turned a little cool and the cold river was not as tempting as it was in the higher heat the previous day. Susan got her fishing gear togehter and sorted for an hour or so of fishing on the river in front of our studio apartment.

Then we took an afternoon walk on the other part of the trail that we had walked the other day.

Thus ended our afternoon and time to change gears to get to Gay and Mary Ann's house to welcome and join our cycling friends for dinner and planning of the weekend.
