The family Lake Powell trip always brings with it the promise of down time. This year was a little bit more busy with more people during the first part of the week. We had a fairly large group of people down and at times it seemed like there was nowhere to sit down. We all had a blast. Two groups went home early leaving a few of us there.
The water was great every morning and we went out for some early skiing. It was the best skiing I have had in a long time. Going out on the boat early has its perks; the air is nice and cool, the water is glass, normally only three of four people are willing to get up and go, and you can go for as long as you want.
The trip was great. We ran into some hiccups at the end when our boat gave out and then returning to the marina the houseboat's starboard engine gave out. It was fun just being with family and friends. One of my favorite things was to just sit and talk with my dad. There is no other vacation like Lake Powell.
