My weekend...............

Spent the weekend in South Carolina, home of great bloggers and
wonderful adventures.  An old college friend has a place on Lake
Keowee in Upstate South Carolina.  Lake Keowee is a man-
made marvel, created, I suspect, by Duke Power to provide a
source of cooling water for its nuke plants.  I would guess that
some hydro-electric and recreational benefits are being reaped as
well.  With lots of fingers and coves, the lake has over 300 miles
of shore line and has a surface of more than 18,300 acres.  Pretty
fair sized body of  water.  I had always thought of South Carolina
as being flat.  That would be wrong.  It is pretty, though.

A few of us gathered for some fun and fellowship.  Remind me
next year to pass on the water skiing.

The still of the morning
Instruments of fun or tools of our destruction?

A beautiful day for a leisurely boat ride

The day was tired and so were we

Tired, but not too tired for steaks from the grill.  Yum!

A good time was had by all.
