It was awesome...choppy as usual. Our Bay was out for a few quick runs but we spent most ouf our time on our son in law's Maxum.

We tubed, bbq'd and all went parasailing (even the 4 and 11 year olds)

The boys love tubing!

Hello,

How surpised i was when i realised that the Lake Geneva where you have been is not the same Lake Geneva where i live...

"My" lake Geneva is in Switzerland (Europe). It's first name is Leman Lake, but it's more know as "Lake Geneva".

Have fun there, as i will have here !

Flybird,

How great to hear from someone on our "sister lake"!

My Lake Geneva is in Wisconsin - it is apx 5000 acres and about 10 miles wide. It has wonderful clarity and is plenty deep for me (up to apx 150 feet).

Would love to see pictures...please share sometime!

More info from the local tourism department:

Hello,

It would be cool to share pictures from "our" lake !

First of all, i give you a wiki link about "my" lake:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Geneva

There are some good picture relative to the swiss lake. I remember one winter when it was freezing and windy. There was a lot of ice on the border of the lake.

When I find some pictures, i will create an album and give you the link !

Have a cool week-end.

Sly

Wow. I'd disappear for months at a time on a lake like that. Just give me enough food to live off of.
