It was a cool evening in Atascadero. The water was still and the colors beautiful. The lake was busy with people. Some were fishing, some walking around the lake, , some just sitting and enjoying the stillness of the night , like the elderly couple standing near a stump reading a book. In our little spot you could hear the music playing across the lake. We enjoyed our fishing as others across the water participated in the Atascadero Lakeside Wine Festival. It seemed to be a good evening for all. This quiet little town does come to life.
