Lucky Peak Reservoir... It's just a short drive, about 25 miles east of home. It was a beautiful day and we had been couped up in the house all weekend, not feeling well enough to get off the couch. This shot was taken at the south-west end of the reservoir, closest to Boise. This photo does not show the many boats on the water that day... We saw sail boats, ski boats, row boats, kayaks, canoes and rafts. The dock above was taken from clear across this photo and to the right some. Can you make out the trees along the banks clear across there? There's a park there with a marina and little store. All the parks around this reservoir are for day use only. Here's some info on the reservoir...
How much shoreline is there on the Reservoir? There are 45 miles of shoreline, most only accessible by watercraft.
How deep is the Reservoir? When full, it is 258 feet.
The high desert here is turning green and just coming into full bloom . We had a record rainfall this May, highest ever recorded. Though rain was much needed, I believe we are still in a drought here.
Leaving the reservoir, we came upon an Amphicar! Check it out! It's a land and water car. This couple had pulled out in front of us on our way home, dripping water from it's tail end. I wish we had seen it in the water, and coming out of the water... that would have been cool!
See the water propellers underneath?This was just too cool!
Molly had her puppies Friday night while we were out to dinner. We had just given our first of Lucy's pups away before going to dinner and came home to more! This was May 20th. By that Sunday morning, one of the little ones passed away.
Molly's girls at two weeks old, Friday, June 3rd.
And Sadie, last but not least... We are keeping her! Sadie comes to work with me and gets to visit with our patients everyday. Sadie, at nine weeks old, weighs just two pounds. A bundle of fur and joy. The patients love her. I'm told over and over again how Sadie has just made our patients' day.
