Saturday started off with yet another great breakfast spread courtesy of our wagonmaster(s) David & Nicole Guhsé. They’re still on track to receive an A+ grade for their performance so far 🙂
Our rally schedule for the day called for “no organized day time activity” until our Dinner Cruise aboard the Canyon Princess at 5 PM. Agenda below:
However, before we did nothing for the day – we set up an impromptu “GearHead Session” after breakfast.
A “GearHead Session” is simply a forum for members to discuss anything related to our beloved Alpines – usually of a mechanical nature. There is a always a wealth of information to be gleaned from our members. Subjects discussed during the session included, but were not limited to; tow bars, tow bar breakaway switches, receiver hitches, dual-pane window fogging, lubricants and sprays for steps & slideouts, water tank dump valves, and more. It was a good session.
The rest of the day was pretty much a hang around do-nothing day that I used to finish up yesterday’s blog post.
At 4:30 PM all the Alpiners headed over to the Marina to get ready for our scheduled dinner cruise.
A couple of our members showed up in the exact same shirt which got a good laugh.
We hung around in the Lodge lobby until it was time to go down to the dock.
That’s our ship on the lower left in the picture below.
Some of us took the courtesy tram down to the ship…
while others walked down…
and here she is – the Canyon Princess: The website says the following about this tour: While relaxing aboard the Canyon Princess, you will enjoy the breathtaking sunset on Lake Powell. This dinner cruise combines spectacular Wahweap Bay scenery with a delicious dining experience. The Canyon Princess Dinner Cruise includes a delightful menu made up of salad, breads, a variety of entree options, and choice of dessert. Your favorite beverage is available for purchase at the bar. This two-hour dinner cruise aboard the Canyon Princess is sure to provide you with special memories of your trip to Lake Powell.
We boarded the ship for our two-hour tour… uh oh, did I say two-hour tour? Hmmmm… sounds familiar somehow 🙂
Lots of carp and some stripers were hanging out around the dock.
We were all seated in the dining area and pretty much had the entire boat to ourselves except for a few other couples.
The dinner was great!
Now – enjoy some pictures of our evening dinner cruise:
We returned to the dock all too soon. It was an awesome evening!
Back at the campground we walked around the campground loop with little dog “Coach” and stopped to admire Greg & Marcy Vaughan’s light show…
It was a warm and pleasant evening. Later, we hung out with a small gathering of our Alpine friends outside one of the Coaches until it was time to call it a night.
Check back tomorrow for a recap of Rally Day 5 which includes a tour of Glen Canyon Dam.
