Center Hill Dam Part 1

This past weekend we went to Center Hill Dam to Chris's cabin to celebrate Hope's 36th birthday! We had a great time even with all the rain. It cleared up on Saturday afternoon for a couple of hours and we were able to enjoy a walk down to the marina (two and a half miles to be exact but who was counting)! The kids had a blast looking at the boats and picking one to rent when we go back down this summer (we decided on a pontoon boat that had a slide off the top deck that landed you in the water). We had planned on going canoeing but weren't able to b/c of all the rain, something about the river was having to be regenerated to keep it at the right level since there had been so much rain lately.

We also enjoyed a nice lunch at a different marina Saturday afternoon. We got to check out a really nice houseboat that I will be buying if I ever run across an extra $220,000! It had 4 bedrooms and 2 baths and this really nice party deck up top! It would be so much fun to own one and park it on the Intercoastal Waterway and whenever we wanted take it all the way down to Florida :) A girl can dream, right! Saturday night we had a low country boil for dinner that was great. Then the rain settled back in and we pretty much stayed in the cabin the rest of the time. Hopefully when we go back this summer we won't have so much rain and can get out more.

There were daisy's up and down the road. Matt took this picture and it looks like the flower is floating.
