The Contra Loma Sunset

The other night my wife and I took the kids out to Contra Loma with a bunch of cousins to Barbecue some hot dogs and played some football... It was a great time... It was last Friday night and there was no one there but a couple of fishermen... The nice weather this weekend really started to begin on Friday night ...Eight of us, four girls and four guys  played four on four  football on the grass next to the waters edge till about 9pm ...Boy was I sore , but what great fun ! ... The sunset on the lake was beautiful as you can see below here ...
This  Mallard Duck and her  ducklings were cruising the shore line doing some supper time feeding  while watching us play ball ... Contra Loma Reservoir is also a great place to take the kids fishing... There are many very  large Rainbow Trout stocked regularly at this lake as well as a variety of other types of fish including the occasional Sturgeon and even Salmon...
When my son was smaller he won a trophy at the Compys Kids Fishing Derby that is held in the fall  there at Contra Loma ...We sure enjoyed our family picnic at this place last Friday night and we plan to do it again soon ... What a great resource to have so close to home ...
