While in Lake Havasu we rented a boat and took it through the channel under The London Bridge, then into Lake Havasu.
We saw some pretty neat boats and light houses. (well replicas)
The views on the lake were great too.
We decided to take a boat ride up the Colorado River to Pirate’s Cove in California for lunch. That being about a 4 hour boat ride each way. I was sure to pack activities for the kids to do. Every one stayed pretty entertained. Tyler and Katey turned to coloring for a while.
Tyler even spent some time helping Daddy drive the boat.
We did stop for a swim. Here is Emily drying off and relaxing. Then out of the blue Emily says “Wait a minute, we left Arizona and we are going to California on the Colorado River? That is so crazy!”
We saw the sand bar.
We had some pretzels with us for a snack and I think somebody threw one out of the boat, because the next thing I knew we were being attacked by birds. Let me tell you that really made for the memories.
One even landed right on our boat.
We entered Devil’s Elbow, which is a very narrow gorge. We are used to that seeing as how we live right by Flaming Gorge.
We knew we were close when we saw a pirate boat.
It was just beautiful there. It really felt like paradise.
We boated over to the gift shop and saw another pirate ship.
We took the Colorado River back home.
But not without stopping to go seashell hunting first. We got some really big sea shells. It was a really great time.
