August 24-26, 2009

We headed towards Flathead Lake Monday morning and stopped in Kalispell to get our air conditioner repaired. It had stopped working a couple of weeks ago and August is not the time to be without an air conditioner. The RV dealer we stopped at gave us the name of the guy who does their air conditioning work. He was able to fix the air conditioner (a switch had burned out) in a couple of hours and we were on our way. We drove to Polson, MT at the south end of Flathead Lake and are going to stay here for a few days. We are staying at Eagle Nest RV, which has a cherry orchard on one side, a golf course on one side and a horse pasture on another side. It is a really nice park with lots of grass and trees. Unfortunately, we are at the end of the cherry season and we might not be able to find any fresh cherries.

Tuesday morning we decided to take a drive around Flathead Lake. This is a very scenic area with lots of fruit orchards. We found a fruit stand and bought cherries, peaches, tomatoes and corn – fresh produce is wonderful, we do miss our garden. We stopped at Bigfork, a nice resort town on the East side of the lake, and walked around looking at the shops. We found a great store that makes preserves, fudge, flavored honey, etc. We got some huckleberry jam, huckleberry honey and huckleberry fudge – Mmmm good! On the other side of the lake we stopped at Mission Winery and found some excellent wine we couldn’t pass up. When we got back to the RV park Rex washed the 5th wheel.

Wednesday was spent doing laundry, washing the truck, bathing the dogs and relaxing.
