Every year we gather a bunch of folks and go splash around in Lake Chelan. It's when we all get to relax, hang out, and, for one, conquer their fear of water. Ok, yes, that's me. I have an odd fear of deep water if I can't see the bottom. So what better way than to go to the third deepest lake in the country. Clocking in at 1,486 feet, it is definitely the nightmare of the fearful. But oh so much fun! 

This year we weren't met with scads of sunshine but smoke filled skies from the 215 fires in the surrounding area. Thank you, Canada. Didn't damper the mood too much. Below are a few of my favorite moments.
