Returning from our first outing on the boat . . .
View up the cove from our dock:
Pics of the house we stayed in . . . huge kitchen that opened to the living/dining room:
The back porch . . . the boys and their "papa":
Returning to our "estate" on the boat, we were the last dock on the left:
Matt, coming out to help unload the boys from the boat . . .
More house pics . . . the living room:
Geared up and ready to roll . . . out on the lake, that is . . . sun screen, hats, water shoes, and life jackets, check!
(Can't you see the enthusiasm?)
Pa, giving tips to the lake-goers . . . don't jump out the boat!
The only way Cam would sleep was in the boat . . . so, lots of boating during nap times and just before bed!
Grey's favorite was driving the boat (with Mr. Jim, of course)!
Mom and Cam
Cam, feeling the wind in his hair . . .
Oh, so tired! Resting his head on the boat!
Cam's "do", looking like the wind has been in his hair
Grey's first time catching a fish! (but he accidentally touched its fin, and he was scared of it after that)
Sunday night, out to dinner at "The Pointe" . . . almost everyone ordered fish n chips!
All-in-all, a great mini-vacation. We would definitely recommend Lake Gaston - very family oriented with nice houses, and prices were definitely cheaper than Smith Mountain Lake. The house we stayed in was brand new and very spacious. We are definitely keeping the lake trip in our vacation rotation!
