What a difference a week can make. Now it's cloudy and rainy, but last week we took our barge out on a warm sunny day.
|Sandy beach near Dunn Dock on Powell Lake.|
Rather than stopping at a logging barge ramp like we usually do, we beached ourselves on a sandy shore.

We hiked the shoreline looking for the old road with a rusting winch from early logging days. Winches were used to haul logs and equipment up and down the steep slopes along the shore of Powell Lake. The road was too grown over to explore in our shorts and water shoes.
We'll return another day to see if it's still there.
On the way home we used the good weather for some quad seat fishing. No bites, but I caught some really good rays. -- Margy
