Eagle Nest Lake Vacation – 6 of 15

Katie and Daniel exchanged basic information as he rowed the boat toward Eagle Nest Dam. He’d be a senior at the high school in Taos in the Fall, but lived on a ranch farther up the valley. He worked at Eagle Nest Lodge in the summer, when they needed extra help.

Katie explained that she was vacationing with her parents and would be a junior at the Oklahoma City High School. She studied Daniel’s shoulders as he worked the oars.

“Do you like to fish?” he asked.

“Don’t know.” She smiled at him. “I never have.”

He grinned. “Or we can just look at the scenery.”

She shook her head. “That’s too passive. I’d rather fish.”

“But you don’t know if you’ll like it.”

“Oh, I will.”

He grinned at her and paused the oars. “Sure of yourself, aren’t you?”

“I try to be,” she said.
