Poker Run!

We had a leisurely camp breakfast on the lovely porch and let Stela take her first lake swim on Saturday morning. The rest of the Scruggs arrived mid-morning and we borrowed our friend Pat's floating dock for the Poker Run. We registered at the sand bar, put in our $5 a person to join the fun, and headed out all over the lake to gather signatures and prove we had visited each 'point' of Star Lake. Nathan jumped overboard and swam a few times, but the rest awaited the warmer water on the sand bar. Back at the registration area, we drew cards from a bag after turning in our signatures. We took second place and won $95! Fun day!!
Digging in the sand in preparation for her first Star Lake swim
On the floating dock, heading to the sandbar
Out and about collecting signatures
That way, Captain James!
Coming in toward the sandbar
Lots of floating docks, a Star Lake specialty
Walking Stela at the sandbar

James and grandson Ryan captain the floating dock
Guess which direction the wind blows!
Tuckered out from all that sandbar swimming
