It's about 7:30 in the evening on a warm summer night in Big Bear. You're out in the back yard of Fawnskin Cove, relaxing to the sound of the lake and watching the sun set behind the mountains to the right. Dusk here is an amazing hour, it signals to the world that the work day is over and reserves a bit of time for reflection before nightfall. Today has been an amazing day at Fawnskin Cove - you have a lot to be thankful for - and tomorrow is going to be even better. At first light, it is possible to catch a fish by tying some fishing wire to the end of a stick. All you need is a small lump of cheese or peanut butter to force onto a hook and... you are up and running. Your feet are dangling off the end of the dock, the breeze is brushing against your face and a feeling of contentment has washed over you like never before and this is just fishing! If you don't layback and fall asleep on the dock, your plan is to walk into town with your equally lazy dog Sandy for a bite to eat and some Fawnskin window shopping. Tonight it's wild fishing stories around the fireplace and Jaws on DVD. Tomorrow's theme is a toss up between kayaking and mountain exploring - with a little bit of planning you can probably do both - and lucky for you Blockbuster is just across the water! Fawnskin Cove is a wonderful place to discover your passions - come and be young again.
