Montana - we've had some hot weather up here and what better place to be than on the water or driving around exploring. One of our neighbors told us about a great place to eat that's on the lake, so of course we had to check it out.

Doesn't look like much from the road, but they do pack a crowd. What better place eat then on the patio looking at Flathead Lake. He also told us about another place on the water in Woods Bay.

The water was a bit choppy from the wind, but there one ski boat pulling a surfer. Our neighbors dined here the next day and got to watch someone on a hydra board (someone that wears a jet pack and flies over the water). They said it was quite a show.

We dined at McKenzie River Restaurant for our free flatbread pizza (for signing up). The view is awesome as you can see in the picture. Of course we also did some boating. We launched at a State Park just south of Big Fork (which is at the northeast corner of Flathead Lake) and we motored up the Flathead River.

We caught a couple tiny fish and then I caught a nice size Pikeminnow. We didn't keep it as I read they're not good eating. That means leftovers tonight! There are some beautiful homes along the river as well as a housing development with a marina and fuel dock. We'll have to look a little closer by car.

We heard about a small lake nearby and drove out to check it out. It's a nice little lake, but we didn't see where we would be able to launch the boat. weve been playing pickleball in the mornings, before it gets too hot. Last Friday was a hot day so we took the boat up to Lake Mary Ronan We fished, but not a bite maybe Weston was our good luck charm for fishing! It was definitely cooler on the water with a bit of a breeze 👍

Our patio with our new shade cloth. What a difference it makes.

Flathead Lake is such a picturesque place that but for the winter weather I'd be happy living there forever.
