Swimming, Swimming in Lake Chabot
Mystery Maker: Kathleen
Location: Lake Chabot, San Leandro, CA
It had been years since I had hiked the full 8 miles around the lake and this time I was taking Chris along for the ride. I decided to start the morning with a little breakfast in bed. After all, every good hike should start with fuel.
Chris and I were well into our relationship and planning our wedding, but these quiet excursions were an opportunity to reconnect. No cell phones distracting us or guiding our conversation. Just the two of us talking about our past, our dreams and what the future holds.
I was happy to create a new memory in a place that held so many old happy memories. If you ask me, Lake Chabot really is a hidden gem.
