family beach day
A group of us had a delightful time at Pineview Reservoir in Morgan County with paddle boards, canoes, and communal food and treats galore. Steven gratefully went to get pizza for lunch to slake our appetites which proved effective and delicious.
Because the reservoir is located in a small valley, ringed by mountains, wind is minimal and the water is usually calm. That was the case when we arrived. But the often glassy, ideal for waterskiing and wakeboarding soon became a little more rough when the wind started up. The reservoir however has nice sandy beaches, and we had a delightful day making memories.
An afternoon up in Morgan county with the fam playing, eating, and celebrating life.
