We're back at our friends house moochdocking just south of Prescott. They have a great place for us with water, electric and a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains. How lucky are we? We arrived in the evening as the sun was getting ready to set.
The next day Dotty and I headed out for some kayaking on nearby Watson Lake while Steve and Doug had to work. Too bad for them :-)
Watson Lake is one of two reservoirs at the Granite Dells, outside of Prescott, that was formed in the early 1900s when the Chino Valley Irrigation District built a dam on Granite Creek. The other is Willow Lake. The unique geological formation of the Dells, consists of massive granite boulders that have eroded into rounded bumpy and unusual shapes. It is very popular for kayaking, fishing and hiking.
This one reminds me of Kermit the Frog.

A beautiful day for kayaking!
This dragon fly was buzzing right along with us as we paddled for quite a distance.
We headed back just in time to beat this crazy storm that was blowing in. Lots of thunder and lightning. Quite a show!
What a great day on the water! Thanks Dotty!
