May 1 - Day 6 - Lake Cruise

After hanging around in the morning, eating breakfast, playing pool, doing a little laundry, talking and laughing, we headed out to take a lunch lake cruise.  The boat was called the Bleu Wave and had about 48 passengers.  They served a deli sandwich bar for lunch.  The cruise lasted two hours, so we were able to spend a little time in each area of the boat - the upper deck, the salon, and the open bow.  We did get into the bar, since you had to walk through it to get to the bow and to get sodas.

The cruise went from Stateline over to Emerald Bay and back.  The weather was perfect, warm with a light jacket, sunny, light wind.  Seeing the lake from the water gives a whole new perspective to the beauty of the lake and the mountains, as they look different from every angle. 

We were glad we had driven around the Bay yesterday and seen it from that viewpoint and with the information we learned then, as it helped make today's tour more interesting.  As cruise boats always do, they took a picture of the group, which we purchased - one copy only, which Gary or Richard will scan and email to all of us.  It was actually a pretty good picture - except maybe of me!

After the cruise, we stopped at the grocery store to pick up a few items, including stuff to do hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill this evening.  Then, we went back to the condos.  After resting, playing a game, reading, etc., the guys went out to the big grill to cook our dinner and the girls got everything else ready.  Dinner was really good!  And the Boston creme pie was a perfect dessert!

The rest of the evening, we just hung around.  One of the couples always watches that TV show about losing weight, I forget the name, and it was the finale, so we watched that.  Well, some of us read while everyone else watched, but we were all there together and watched a little of it anyway.

So another day ended and another day as good as the others.  We really only have Wednesday and Thursday left, as we have to drive back to SLC on Friday.  Boy, how quickly time goes when you are having such fun!
