Cobbs is on a series of connected ponds. On Tuesday, we went on a cookout/adventure to the upper-most pond. We spent the day on "Big Island" which is the biggest of the 7 land masses people camp out on up there. We went with two guides, who drove the motor boats and cooked us an amazing lunch of cookout foods and fried potatoes. There were also delicious homemade pickles. My grandma got excited that I was excited about pickles, and happily asserted the traditional assumption. I'm almost positive she's wrong....
After the cookout, we had a few hours to explore the island and read and such. Tom went fishing with the guides and was quite successful. He caught a salmon and a trout. Pretty impressive eh? They were delicious, we ate them for breakfast the next day. He was lauded as the mighty hunter for the rest of the week.
It was another really hot day, so when Tom got back, we decided to go cliff diving. Paul, Tom and I all took the plunge.
It's pretty amazing how long you feel like you're in the air when you do the jump. Guaranteed to get your adrenaline pumping!
