More Lake Powell

No surprises - we spent the weekend on the water. On Saturday, we went to the Chains, instead of our usual Lone Rock beach. (the bottom picture) The Chains is closer, is more sandstone than sand, and is far less crowded. We ran into some friends there and spent the time swimming and laying about. Brian brought his fishing pole, made a few casts, gave-up, and jumped into the water. On Sunday, Jyn & Chris, and their daughter Lauren, invited us out on their boat. Brian was off on a hike with the park botanist to find an endemic species, so just the kids and I went. We spent about 8 hours on the lake and could have spent even more. All three kids spent 90% of the time swimming or rafting in the water. (They only came out to eat.) They were all brave enough to go tubing behind the boat, as well. It was very relaxing. And many thanks to Jyn - she was such a sport the entire day, considering she has a lingering bout of morning sickness.
