We are going to find some sun

Kite boarder enjoying a ride on the choppy waters of Useless Bay.

Mr C has had a rough time of it the past two months as he has software ( liquor sales system) out there in the market place, which has had to have some major changes made to it, so he has been working until all hours of the morning for weeks on programming, so the software would be ready for the stores to use June first. Yes, many of you will know what happened here in WA State on June first. There are still small 'bugs' showing up to be dealt with but it seems, we hope, the huge problems are done with.
The phone has been 'red hot' with his customers calling for help, ordering new supplies etc. but finally, the calls have dwindled to a couple a day and as it happens to be our Fishin' Club's weekend camping outing at Banks Lake, we have the RV standing by to be loaded for a nice quiet few days away from the mayhem.
Poor Mr C is so darn tired he can hardly move, so it will be good for him to get away, sit on the bank of the lake and enjoy some fishing. Be nice for me too, to be away from the constant telephone calls, the long hours Mr C puts in (I don't sleep well when he is not beside me)  I am not much of a fan of fishing so I have a book to read, a bottle of wine, to enjoy, suntan lotion (providing we find some sun) and my camera to record our mini vacation.
We decided to leave our boat at home this year, for a few reasons. First, there really wasn't time to get it ready, second it was 'buried under a ton of stuff in the barn, due to some renovations which had been done out there, and finally, we usually travel up over the Cascades as Mr C does not like to tow the boat through Seattle and also there is the ferry fare from Whidbey Island to the mainland to consider. Anyhow, this time we will take the faster route over Snoqualmie Pass to our destination.
See You all when we get back. You all have a great weekend.
