The last few days were a bit cooler and a few of the days the lake was a little rough. That didn't stop Will, grandpa and Jake but the rest of us opted to stay off the boat.
We spent some time up at the bridge fishing. We didn't have a lot of luck up there this year.Drew got some web blasting practice in.
Emily was content mostly just sitting in her stroller watching everyone.
Friday night was our last night and we enjoyed a meal up at the steakhouse. The weather was rainy so no one went out fishing. Tony was able to finish the puzzle that grandma had brought that we all had worked on throughout the week. The guys got the boats out of the water while mom and I finished packing. We finished the night with a fire in the fireplace.
Saturday morning we got up early to pack the boats and get on the road. All week we kept a poster on the fridge documenting what fish were caught each day. The person who caught the most bass for the week would be the champion. After doing some math and averaging out (since grandpa missed some days) the winner of this years Ten Mile Lake Tournament of Champions was...Will. He won the belt buckle. And yes, that is a trout, not a bass. Details, details. As usual we took family photos before we left.This was the view of the lake from the front of our cabin the morning we left. This will be our last year up there for a while. It is bittersweet. I have come up here every year since I was a child. We decided that since our kids are getting older it is time to travel a bit and see some new sites. So, next year we are planning to take a vacation elsewhere. While I will miss not coming up here, it will be fun to go some place new.
