Goat River Day Trip

Wayne, John, Bro (John's trusty Lab), and I took the new Hewescraft out for a leisurely cruise.  We love how it performs. It'll be a fun and safe boat for our frequent lake travel to and from the cabin. This week's day trip was through Goat River into Goat Lake.

Goat River can be tricky to navigate in low water, but we raised the outboard and cruised through slowly.

Wayne and Bro went up in the bow to watch for submerged rocks, snags, and sand bars.


One advantage of low water is that you can see where many (but not all) of the snags are located.  Fortunately, the route is well marked because it's part of the famous Powell River Canoe Route.


On the way home, there were spectacular reflections as we passed through the stump forest where the river empties into Powell Lake.  Wasn't this a beautiful way to end a nice day in the new boat? -- Margy

  3. We went and visited Westport, sat by the water. It was lovely.
    It's nothing like your spot of heaven, but I really love visiting yours!
