Lake Powell is a phenomenal kind of place.  The very first time I saw Lake Powell from the distance my heart skipped  a beat..... its crystal clear blue water was something from a picture page...the rocks are  painted with its colored sand., depending on how high the water levels are...it fluctuates so the water leaves its mark on the rock ... I was in awe the entire trip... got to see it at its best. One day it rained and i was able to see double rainbows.... and a waterfall dripping  from a rock up above.  We were living in a houseboat   that my friend owns.. It was like living a dream...... the house boat was equipped with a full kitchen where I cooked our meals. It was like a small house ..... fully equipped for  all our needs.
We spent our days boating in the Eliminator ( fast speeding boat ) and our nights looking at stars,  telling ourselves how lucky we were.
One day when we were boating..... we passed  this slow moving boat... my friend said Let's race them.... then one of our   towels sort of flew out of the boat... my friend... being the great swimmer he is.... stopped the Eliminator and jumped into the water... all I   could see was darkness... and no sight of my friend.....I think,  my heart stopped...... I was in the middle of nowhere in Lake Powell ...(im not a good swimmer and my friend is over 6 feet tall  and over 200 pounds..and im only 5feet tall 110 dripping wet ) I thought my friend had drowned, then he  came back up and with a smile he said.... I got it,  I got it...... Those are great memories of Lake Powell and its allure.... it still calls at me......... Mariss.... come and bathe in my waters again..... ;-)
