On the lake at last!
We left Richfield at about 8 a.m. and arrived at Bullfrog Marina about 11:30 a.m. There might be a faster route than going through Capitol Reef National Park on Utah SR 24, but no more scenic one!
The marina was a zoo - all the "go fast" boats were pulling out, but we got the boat launched and the truck parked without incident.
Got launched about 12:20 p.m., Russ and Toni were anchored just outside the launch area in Traveler. We rafted up, had a drink and lunch, and then motored a few miles up Bullfrog Bay, which is one of the few areas with a good bottom for anchoring. Russ dropped the hook on Traveler, and we rafted up in Daydream.
The weather is great, the main reason we love Lake Powell so much! First order of business was taking a swim to cool off.
Toni rowed Baxter to shore just because. Baxter loves this place too!
A little later Russ and I kayaked in and Patty, Toni and Baxter took the dinghy in for a stroll.
Back on the boats, we had drinks and dinner and fished a bit. I caught a small catfish and released it. We need a boil of stripers to come by!
This may be the last day I have an internet connection on the lake for some time, on the lake you only have cell or internet when you are in sight of Navajo Mountain where the cell tower is located, so I will keep writing and upload as possible!
