Saturday morning was spent at the fishing beach which may not be the most appropriate name for the place... Needless to say, none of us limited out. In fact this was the only catch of the day and the trip for that matter. And who was the big winner you ask? - it was me of course...
The view of the muddy water from the fishing beach... Marie and Nina sat in the sun with the Maddog.
After lunch we decided to see if we could get Maddie to swim. Here she is with her back feet on the lake bed and her front feet scratching the heck out of Marie...
Getting better... OK in too deep - back to shore...
As time went by Maddie got better about the water and swam for 30 seconds at a time Stopping occasionally for a reassuring hug.
She had not quite figured out that shaking accomplishes more after you are out of the water... She did remember to take her ball with her as she left the water.
Back on solid ground One last swim before heading back to camp...
She did much better than we had expected and we were happy with the progress. Not sure what it was, but Cameron found something...

Talk about a mud bath...
Nina on the shore as Marie, Jordan, Cameron and Maddie swam and I took pictures...
This is a shot of the log Nina was sitting on from the end where her feet were... Evidence of recent erosion as the water levels have been dropping in the lake.
Back at camp and dried off, Maddie and Cameron enjoyed a game of soccer while I set up the tent.
Maddie was issued a yellow card for illegal use of mouth...
