We spent this past week on the houseboat on Lake Powell. It was the most wonderful time, full of 10-hour a night deep sleeping, amazing, healthy meals, tons of swimming, and lots of running around and having fun. Hank's family has been going to the Lake for many years before Hank was even born, and he grew up spending weeks at a time on his families boats- so he is a total water baby. I was raised on the ocean, so lakes are a whole different thing for me, but I have to say, I love Lake Powell and I was super excited for this trip! So we left Sunday evening and drove up to the Lake and got there around midnight. Hank's Mom and step-Dad had already flown their plane up and spent the 4th there, so they came back to their slip and docked Sunday night so we could sleep there after arriving late and head out to find a beach Monday morning. Their slip is right at the very end so all you see if water and canyon, simply beautiful. So we spent the night very comfortably and headed out around 9am on Monday. Hank and his Mom took the speedboat to scout out a beach to dock at, and once we arrived we got the wave runners down and had a great time. The whole week was a blur of water and fun, and the pictures tell the story best I'm sure. If you'd like to see more, you can check out my Flickr. Yay!
Hank's Mom decided to name the boat "Fins Up!" :)
