Do you know this kid? He had a kind of rebirth today, a renaissance, if you will, back to age 18.
|This picture has its own story - maybe I'll tell it someday!|
Dimond O has been gone for many years as a Scout camp, and now is just another Forest Service Campground. But Evergreen Lodge still stands as a restaurant and tavern, plus a whole lot more. It has been developed into a major resort attracting visitors from far and wide. Two of those attracted today were the 18-year-old kid and his wife. OK, the 18-year-old kid is now 73 and his wife is still quite young.
How did we find Evergreen Lodge? We found it beautiful and beckoning and welcoming. We had a delightful lunch there today. Oh you mean, how did we FIND Evergreen Lodge. We were playing with our new Garmin nuvi GPS, to see what more it could do besides misdirecting us many miles on an unnecessary back road. One of the opening screens asks “Where To?”
One option is “Points of Interest,” and a sub-option is Food. That brings up a series of screens listing types of food: All Food, Mexican, Asian, Bagel or Donut, etc. I touched All Food, and Evergreen Lodge popped up, 6.7 miles away! Well, that must be as the crow flies, because the Suzuki had to travel at least twice that far.
(If Rick of Rick and Paulette can put in a tutorial, so can I!)
We of course drove to Evergreen Lodge, were captivated by the beautiful new resort, and by the cute young waitress who took this picture of us. We had a chicken Panini sandwich accompanied by a delightful Sauvignon Blanc.
On the way home, we noticed this ranch for sale. While the structures are probably totally unsound, the view was unspoiled. And we took these pictures with the windmill for Mike McFall.

This evening was grilling time. We did a ball-tip roast, just big enough to cut into two nice steaks. And it was splendid!
What a fine ending for this Sunday in … Our Life on Wheels!
