Stevens Creek CP Lakeshore Picnic Area, Cupertino, July 18, 2019

Stevens Creek Reservoir was nearly full in July for the first time in a long time.  This made for a beautiful painting subject for us, a pleasant place for a picnic for a group of residents from a neighborhood rehabilitation center, and a fun place for paddle boarding for a group of children and their leaders.  It was a warm day, but Stevens Creek CP Lakeshore Picnic Area has lots of beautiful oak trees giving shade to many picnic tables with good views of the reservoir, so we were very comfortable.
