California Here I come...


Only 2 days until I (Jana) fly out to California for 2 weeks at our family cabin at Bass Lake! Unfortunately Kent won't be able to join me this year, which totally stinks. I will be flying to the Bay Area (that's San Francisco for you Texans) and staying with my good friend Debbie Obernesser for a couple of nights, connecting with my college roomie/friend Elisse, then hitching a ride with my dad to the lake. I have gone to Bass Lake every summer of my life, and I am not about to give it up just because I live 1,600 miles away!

Forks burgers, fireworks, mountains, taco salad, onion rings from Miller's Landing, Whoopee Cushions from the Corner Store, waterskiing and tubing, a comfy hammock to read on, family, friends ... I am so JAZZED!

For those of you unfamiliar with Bass Lake, it is a beautiful emerald green lake just a few miles outside of Yosemite National Park. And unlike Southern Texas lakes, this one is not brown and you can see underwater. And... no large reptiles (though my brother Jeff used to tell me that someone had released Piranhas into the lake as well as "fresh water sharks"- That's big brothers for you.)

I am so happy you are coming out! I am sooo excited, as well, to be going to the lake. You're right, you shouldn't have to give it up because you moved 1600 miles away :)
