It is a lovely, beautiful, warm day so we thought we would head to the lake and take a spin (and lunch) on the pontoon boat before the madness that is the 4th of July weekend sets in.

While staying at River Island State Park in Parker, Arizona we had plenty of time to explore the area of Parker and Lake Havasu City. The area has lots to offer as far as campgrounds, RV Parks, entertainment, restaurants, hiking, biking, boating, and great weather. What more could you ask for? One of the first stops is the Lake Havasu …

The southern part of the Coeur d’Alene River is known as the Chain Lakes area. There are 10 lakes that feed off the river and there are passageways (channels) that lead you from …

Being a photographer, a boater, and loving birding we like to head out on the St. John’s River and …
