We had set this date up at the wedding in June.
My phone and VHF warned of severe thunderstorm for the area. Had a quick look on the weather radar and determined that it would be over after 6pm. At around 5pm, a NASTY cloud front came in from the NE, and pelted us with major rain, hail, lightening, and winds. Max wind recorded by the wind instrument was 35 knots.
Joanne called asking if we were still on.
Everyone showed up a little at 6pm, and we had appetizers and it was sunny and beautiful.

We took a mooring ball by the beach, but found it was too bouncy for cooking dinner.
We went back in the harbour and dropped anchor.
Dinner was great: BBQed kabobs with potatoes and salad.
We ate down below in the cabin
|Butter Tart for dessert (no raisins!)|
The sunset at anchor was AWESOME
It was such a nice night, that we motored out into the lake for a bit:

Thanks for a great night!
