After safely arriving at our cabin on Lake Taneycomo in Branson and unloading our stuff, we headed to Old Chicago Pizza House for a quiet afternoon on the patio over the lake.
On Thursday morning and afternoon we set out in three boats, with guides, to catch the largest fish. Gary won that prize by pulling in an 18 inch beauty. The weather was perfect except we needed a little wind to add ripples to the calm water. That helps the fishing.
On Friday we set out in the same fishing groups on yet another perfect weather day and Dan won the the prize for the largest fist with a 20 inches. After dinner at the Farmhouse we played poker till late.
Gary, Dan and I sent Randy, Dave and Joe off to home on Saturday morning then we went to Dogwood Canyon for a 6 mile bike ride along a trail of waterfalls and carefully manicured parks. Afterwards we relaxed at Big Cedar Lodge.
