Once we finally found where we were supposed to be, we had a wonderful time catching up on old times and hearing about the last 20 years or so and what had transpired in their lives. Steele's boat was a 2007 Aloha (I think a 30 foot) party pontoon and it was in lovely condition! He was very creative on how he hung his fishing poles and other items up on top to save space in the boat. And, Cindy created a great holder for all the water weenies.
Here's a little video of us leaving the marina.
It was so fun to listen to the two guys chat and chat. We went to BYU with Cindy and Steele back in the early 80s and our kids were little together so it was great to catch up! The weather was fabulous on the lake...cool air with little heat and NO BUGS, which made my day! It was so hot in Hot Springs and down in Hope that morning.We had to leave by 8 p.m. so that we could get the rig ready for an early morning departure, but the anchor decided it wanted us to stay longer and got wrapped around an old tree sunk at the bottom of that part of the cove. Steele tried every which way to dislodge the darn thing and we finally had to get close to land where Scott jumped off, grabbed and rock and they sunk the line of the anchor. Steele would just have to come back and get one of his boys to dive down and figure out how to get it unstuck. Driving back to the dock was amazingly beautiful in the sunset!! And, this isn't even using a filter! Gorgeous!
We disembarked, said our goodbyes and headed on our way. I'm so glad we took the time to pay Steele a visit and catch up on old times. It made up want to buy a boat and float
