Day 237: Speed.

I am still home. On dry land. And vacation still seems as if it were a mirage in the desert. As I recap, I think about what it means to be on a boat and in a house – and how so much of that meaning changes when you add the two together:

House + Boat = Cruising

So here is Lake Powell Day 2:

Today we cruised. In a house. That is also a boat. On a very, very large lake. It sounds like it’s right out of Make-Believe-Land. And it kind of is…Because it’s pure magic to be living in a house that’s also a boat with a slide off the back deck.

But who needs a slide when you can just jump off the side of your house and land in a lake? Certainly not this group of travelers.

I can’t say I am as brave as these plunging backflipping people, but I did pretend to be “the king of the world” at the front of the boat.

Then I plugged my nose and jumped anyway. Feet First.

Speaking of firsts… there were many firsts on Day 2:

  • Our first 5-hour cruise on a houseboat
  • Our first experience pumping out “poop” (yes… emptying real poop containers) at the poop station. It was closed when we first pulled up so we had to leave, which isn’t an easy feet in a huge HOUSE that is a BOAT. Then, just as we were pulling away from the dock the Park Ranger came out and removed the closed sign. Poop Station Open for Business!
  • It was also our first time cooking on a houseboat (That would include bang bang cauliflower, peanut sauce chicken, fish tacos and Asian rice thank you very much!)

We also had our first rare bird sighting. A pink flamingo and white swan.

But the best sights of the day were finding shapes in the massive canyon walls. Angels, faces, animals and art.

Can you see the whale in this photo?

More tomorrow.

{what do you see?}
