Detroit Lake - Again

OK, so you're probably getting the hang of this - we found a great little cove at Detroit Lake to boat-camp in and we keep going back to the same spot. This time both girls came and we overnighted. The weather was beautiful this weekend, quite warm but the wind kept us cool enough.

Hanging out on deck...

...being goofy

They were driving each other nuts at times, but you would never know it when the camera was turned on.

The V-Berth is perfect for sleeping two little rascals!

The next morning we were back to monkey business...

Abby and Mim love "casting" and then reeling the line back in real fast. I'm not sure if you would call it fishing, more like target practice. But they love it.

Top of Detroit dam. I don't know why, but it always freaks me out to be on top of the dam. Maybe it's the 600 foot drop just over the other side of that railing they are leaning on.

The wind was strong, and gusty, throughout our sail back from "our" cove. I only dared put up the mainsail, and even then was making hull speed (6 knots). Not too shabby.
