Lake Powell~ Bullfrog side

Make a PhotoShow Full Size

Been about 6 years since I've slept in a tent (air mattress a must!). It was so nice sleeping on the shore of Lake Powell, enjoying "dogs" & S'mores over a campfire, and introducing the desert night sky to S & S, exuberant stars. The weather was perfect and the lake was like bath water. Our future slalom girls loved being pulled on the tube, playing on the rock beach, and sleeping next to us in the tent. I loved hearing their giggles, watching them fall asleep in my arms while sight seeing the lake, and seeing their face light up to each new thing (campfire, riding in tube, watching Trevor jump into lake off rock...). They are great little travelers and have so much fun with their brothers. Magical times.

We did face a few snags... Our poor boat took a beating on this trip. On the way down, the travel cover flew off the boat, ripping out all the snaps, and taking out the side mirror of the car behind us- Oops. Then, on the lake, the back lounge deck cover gave in- great! When we were heading back to the Marina, we helped a stranded jet skier and her jet ski hit our boat, leaving a nice fortunately small crack in the back of our boat. What can you do? It could've been a lot worse and was still worth it all. We made it home safe and sound and had a blast! Now with a few minor repairs to do before we go out again.

It sounds like it was a fun experience.. At least problems come in 3's. You already had 3 with the boat, so maybe there wont be anymore where it is concearned!
