A Perfect End to Summer!

Sunny Daze
We just returned from 10 wonderfully peaceful days at Lake Powell. With no cell phone or TV service, it really was a 'get away from it all' vacation. (Our only regret is that we were not able to listen to Conference.) The temperatures were in the mid 70's, just perfect for lounging, reading, relaxing, playing games, watching movies, touring, hiking to Anasazi ruins, watching beautiful sunrises and sunsets.....(and taking photos). We went down with friends who stayed for a few days and left just as some other friends came and stayed for a few days. Michelle, Sawyer and Jessica came down during this time as well. Toward the end of the week, Tyler and 7 of his closest friends came down and livened things up. The old folks were content to tour in the boat and do all of the above mentioned activities, but the younger people wake boarded, rode the tube, built sand castles, and gave us a country western dance exhibition.....(yes, even Tyler!!!) First time being in charge of a houseboat was a big learning curve, but we've decided that it was a great idea! We're already looking forward to next year, so put in your reservations early! (Sleeps 10 in beds, and 10-15 in sleeping bags on upper deck. (I'll post more photos tomorrow)
