hiya! so, friday came and it was fantastic, fantastic, i tell you!!! a while ago, tom discovered a new lake. you would never even know it existed because it is in a neighborhood at the end of the street. we road our bikes there, picked up some cherry rejuvenating power along with some nectarines and found a spot on the sand under an umbrella. thanks don castro (that is the name of the lake), for providing umbrellas, my skin thanks you.
this lake is pretty, pretty awesome. one, because it is big for being a man made swimming lagoon. two, you can actually bbq right next to the lake AND lastly, the water is heated so it isn't freezing cold, it is perfect on a hot day. it was bliss, truly bliss. we listened to some tunes, soaked up some sun, threw the tennis ball around and ate some cherries. it was perfect and when it was time to go it was soooooooo hard to leave. we are heading over there after tom gets off work today. this is my kinda place and i could easily find myself there everyday i have off. have i mentioned how perfect this lake is?
we headed home, washed up and oh gosh...we did.... we went out on the town. since moving here, we haven't really ventured out, well....because there really isn't a night life here nor any place we have wanted to go. but the a's were playing, we were hungry so we found a super awesome dive bar, ate some divey food and drank many beers. it was so fun! plus we got to watch the regulars and i met a few dudes who tattoo in the area and i will be talking to them soon and seeing if they need a shop girl! it was a fantastic day, and we have our silly town to thank for it! thanks hayward sometimes you are pretty awesome!
