We visited Lake Colbun for the first time in February. It is a huge manmade lake approximately 30 miles from Talca and sits in the foothills of the Andes. The lake is used for watersports of all kinds!

On the weekend we stayed, we had such pleasant weather! As the day progressed, I noticed a few more people had drifted down to the picnic area by the water. Until, there was quite a collection of folks catching up on the news with families they hadn't seen since last summer.

Several boats were anchored off shore or along the docks. Many people were pleasure boating and others were fishing. We did a little of both!

Daughter-in-law, Lily, gave us a thrilling ride around the lake one hot afternoon. We skimmed over the water, approaching the majestic mountains beyond the banks and skirting small islands thrusting up from the depths. It was exhilarating!
