We Are Excited To Go to Lake Don Pedro
Saturday July 11, 1992
Lazy morning. Up at 8:30 a.m. time to get the wash done and pack the food and clothes for Don Pedro. I have good energy all day again.
We are all excited about going to Don Pedro for 6 days.
Since I was a little girl my family always went camping on the shore at Lake Don Pedro every holiday weekend in the summers: Memorial Day weekend, Fourth of July weekend, and Labor Day weekend. We always added an extra day onto the end of the weekend to avoid holiday traffic, so enjoyed 4 days of camping, boating, water-skiing and swimming. This trip is unusual in that they are not leaving until Sunday and are staying for 6 days. It was often baking hot in July because it is located near Modesto in California's Central Valley, but sometimes on Memorial Day weekend we got rain. This tradition faded away after Mom passed away, along with many others.
