SWIM MEET

 

Carson's First Swim Meet:

 

 

FORT BRAGG

 

 

The sun was setting and the campfire blazing as we pulled into Van Damme State Park to join the Collins clan for a few smores.

Jeff told us where he and his friends from Chico would be diving for abalone in the morning.

After a good night's rest, we met Jeff on the trail where he pointed out the spot where his group pulled some abalone.

Later, the group posed for a group shot before going to breakfast.

 

 

After breakfast, while Jeff rested, we took a walk near the motel to enjoy the coastal scenery.

Then we played some miniature golf with Tori and Mikayla before heading back to the beach to fly a kite.

Later in the afternoon, Shane and Mikayla challenged some Chico friends to a tennis match.

 

 

GOLD BUG MINE

 

June ended with a trip to the Gold Bug Mine in Placerville.

Maggie and Carson joined us on one of our favorite stops for the grandkids (See 2009 trip)

After posing in front of the mine, we put on the hard hats and hiked through the dark, cool mine.

Then we visited a real blacksmith who explained how the stamp mill worked.

Lunch followed at Original Mel's with a special hamburger meal in a classic car for Carson.
