This is Priest lake...a huge lake...lovely water...great sandy beaches.
We had a great camp site...very close by.
WE boated around, swam, made several sand castles, went to resorts, hiked, played games, four square and more! 
This chipmunk loved our potato sticks and he would eat some and then hide the rest...he would take one and rest it on a tree , in between was so cool!
Then he would go back and eat them.
we also had deer that came through our camp and a sweet frog. 
Here is one of the sand castles...
the beach was pretty hot and the sand was too.
The smell of pine tree and water was great!
One day someone played bagpipes in the was cool.
