Lake Murray Ahoy!

Thanks to my friend, Carol, who not only is a great mud run captain, but also captain of her pontoon boat, we made our first visit to Lake Murray here in South Carolina.  We'd heard great things about the lake including the fact that at the time of it's construction, it was the largest man-made reservoir in the world.  So we (including a friend of the girl) jumped at the opportunity when she invited us out for a cruise on a hot 98 degree day.

It was smooth sailing (or I guess motoring is the better word), and we definitely enjoyed the breezy ride.

After touring a bit around the Dreher Shoals dam and Goat Island (apparently there used to be goats on the little island to keep the foliage at bay), we dropped anchor and took a swim:

Though, for me, it was more of a dip in this cool hammock thing which made me look more like a big Franny taco than a reclining sunbather:

But perhaps I've said too much, according to the sign on the boat:

Needless to say, it was an AWESOME way to spend a hot South Carolina afternoon.
