Watered the garden and then got breakfast going. It was going to be a stay at home day. Ken was working on a different way of tying down the front kayak. He's got if figured out now. :) I was working in the bunkhouse, just cleaning windows etc. That's more of a fun job out there haha.

I was done and it was about 1140. Ken came in and said he just wanted to let me know that our plans for the day had changed. We were heading out to the Walker River State Recreation Area and having lunch. He wanted to test drive the new tie downs on the kayak..Ok, any excuse works.
Ken was having the last 2 pieces of his pizza so I made myself half a low carb wrap, my version of cheese and tomato sandwich LOL. We jumped into the truck and headed out. Kayak did just fine. The park is only 20 miles from our house, which is nice.
We went to the grand opening a few years ago and have been back a few times just because. It's a four mile gravel road to the park off the main highway. They've added an RV campground which is really nice and well spaced. It would only cost us $10.00 for water and electric hookup. Then we drove over to the no hook up campground which was open when the park opened. There were people camping there, but again well spaced and spacious sights. Families and kids, nice to see!

We found our spot, got the chairs out and sat against the truck out of the wind. The sun was shining, mid 70's so perfect. Enjoyed our lunch and drinks. After awhile we headed home.
|We were out of the wind, nice and sunny!|

|The Walker River is near the campground..looked deep and moving to me|
but we did see families walking back after playing
|Even a couple of picnic tables near the river|
|A nice campsite..kids and families :)|

Back outside later in the afternoon while Ken got the barbecue ready. He barbecued home made turkey burgers and they were delicious! We were both beat so it was an early night. :)
Turned the coffee on about 0530 this morning. Ken actually turned the heater on too, first time in quite awhile. 43 degrees! It only got to 59 and with the wind all day felt much chillier. Tonight the low is supposed to be 33 so Ken got the wood stove in the house ready to go for a fire. Tomorrow 70 and then back into the 80's on Tuesday.
|Wind and awesome clouds|
Ken worked on getting the garden set up for the drip system. He went to True Value in town but they didn't have what he was looking for so we'll stop at Lowe's on Tuesday on our way home from Winnemucca. Hopefully he can finish it up on Wednesday so we can leave Thursday or Friday.
|My garden is growing! Even have two blooms on one of the squash plants|
|Jersey knit sheet fits perfect over the garden, supposed to be 33 degrees|
I worked on making coffee treats to freeze to take with us. Kept me busy in the kitchen for a lot of the day. Getting slower in my old age LOL. Pulled out some enchiladas from the freezer for dinner. Made some lettuce coleslaw as I didn't want to go to town for a head of cabbage.

Pretty much that was our day today. 1630 almost Happy Hour 😊 Thinking it'll be indoors today. Have a good night!
