Camping- End of Day One

While we thought the trip was starting off wonderfully, it turns out that we had actually set up in the wrong site, so we had to move EVERYTHING to the correct site...very hot, very tiresome.

After we moved everything, to the correct site, we went down to the lake and waded in. Very cool thing, there is fool's gold floating all through the lake so it was like swimming' in gold!!

Eventually 2 more of the party showed up and we launched the boat. First thing we did was go and try to register w/ the sheriff. As we pulled up to the dock, I grew wings and managed to jump from the boat to the dock and helped guide the boat in...quite the change from last year.

We then spent the next couple of hours on the lake stopping to relax and drink a little bubbly.

As the sun set we anchored the boat, went and took quick showers and now we are grilling up some tritip, corn, and salad and again listening to the crickets....

Aside from the dirt and the bugs, this is the life!!

Feeling jealous.

I don't usually associate camping with a boat. Fun.
