Poway Lake: soothing, calm, beautiful! Poway lake is a great place to go for an invigorating hike or to enjoy a picnic under the shady sycamore and pine trees on its grassy hillsides. There are plenty of tables and barbecues and there is even a covered deep pit barbecue that is available by appointment. It's great for large groups and parties. If you don't want to cook, they have a nice little grill restaurant overlooking the lake that serves burgers, fries and shakes. You can't swim in Lake Poway, as it is a drinking water reservoir, but you can fish from the dock or take a motorboat or paddle boat out onto the water. I think it's the prettiest lake in San Diego County.

You know Christmas is coming to San Diego when you see the tree flocking booths pop up in vacant lots. I think the folks back East would laugh if they saw these, or maybe they'd cry because they know we
don't get any snow.

Walking a south Poway trail I surprised this cat. Then I saw that it was not a house cat. Bobcat? I only had my phone camera. This was the second picture. Cat started away, I made some clucking sounds and the cat stopped to look and took a third photo.
A handsome cat. Cool, too.
