For this weeks family day Kevin chose to have a picnic at Cordeaux Dam. We haven’t been here since the kids were young. Since Athena’s girlfriend and Christy’s friend were joining us, we decided to take two cars. The dam is only about 30 mins away and we were treated to a very nice Winters day. It was cool and crisp with bright blue skies. After parking we walked across the dam, with numerous stops for photos.
After our stroll we found a great spot to have our picnic. I imagine in Summer you would have to get here very early in the day to grab this spot.
We were treated to an awesome Mexican salad that Athena had made at home.
And after lunch there were some games (and I read a magazine while enjoying some warmth from the sun)
You can check out my vlog if you’d like to see more of the day. We all had a fabulous time and I think we’ll be visiting another nearby dam very soon.
For my choice of family day I decided on a visit to the Nan Tien Temple for lunch and a walk around. We’ve been having some gorgeous Winter weather but with a cold change due on Sunday, we decided to have day out on Saturday for a change. Athena friend Tara also joined us and both she and Athena had fun taking photos as well.
It always seems weird seeing ponsettias turning red in the Winter. I know they are Winter plants but since they are always sold here at Christmas time, I associate them with Summer rather than Winter.
Most of the leaves are gone from the desiduous trees.
First up we went to the Dew Drop Inn for lunch.
I ordered this soup but it was actually a little bland and was really the first thing I’ve ordered here that I didn’t love.
With full tummies it was time for our walk around the grounds and take LOTS of photos. Enjoy….
