Town Lake Cruise

With beautiful Fall weather in the air, Marilyn and I decided to take an evening cruise on Tempe Town Lake. We packed up some wine and trail mix and drove to the dock. Being successful at smuggling our party supplies on board, we pulled away from the dock and headed for open seas/lake/river.

Under the Mill Avenue Bridge

Evening turned to night and lights illuminated the city around us.

We shut off the motor, cracked open the wine, and life was good.

Dusk over Tempe

We passed under many bridges and count ourselves lucky that no one dropped a rock or spit on us.

One of the things to avoid hitting

The boats are electric and sponsored by local utility company. One of the valley's finest companies to be sure. Being electric, they don't travel too fast which is good because when it gets dark you can't see where you're going. Maybe that's why we were the only boat on the lake.
