Saturday Get-Away

This Saturday we went with a group of friends on our 3rd annual Lake Jocassee get-away. The weather was beautiful the first year we did a trip like this. Unfortunately, year two was a total freezing cold wash out (though we had interesting adventures none-the-less). So this year we prepared a little bit better and brought sweaters and pants on the boat.

The day started out chilly and overcast, but it warmed up enough for most of us to get in the water. It was still not as beautiful as it had been on year one, but a definite improvement from last year!

As always, great friends, great food, great times.
