Scott had today off! Of course, he spent the morning on the phone diffusing issues at the hotel, but by lunch, we were good to go. It was incrediably awesome to have Scott for a whole day after a month straight of working.
I packed the food bag full of nuts, and dried fruits, and Scott made hard boiled eggs for the lake. Technically, the lake at Oregon Ridge is a quarry. There are no natural lakes in Maryland. The middle of the quarry is 45 ft deep, and it's a super quick drop off. My girls are not swimmers, so we have rules about how far, etc when at the lake. Today, however, was the last free day, and the guide ropes were all set up across the lake marking the shallow, safe spots, and the drop offs and deep water. The girls were able to wade out up to their chests without worry. This time, I remembered to bring our newly turned frogs to release back. We stayed most of the day, and then went grocery shopping.
For dinner, Scott roasted some chicken and we had a fresh salad with homemade dressing. Perfect.
