Nantahala Lake 2013

The day that we’ve been waiting for all summer was absolutely amazing! We have had some crazy weather this summer. Rain, rain, rain and more rain so this day was canceled about 4 time. But in the end it turned out to be the perfect day! Like it was being saved just for us. When we first got there it was in the low 70’s so I was kinda of worried that the water would be to cold. But the temperature warmed up a little bit and the water felt really nice!

In 1942 Nantahala Power created the lake to help give electricity to the war effort.

We got there at about 11am, and sat and talked with our friends for a little bit and then had some lunch on their deck. But the first thing the younger siblings did was go a stick their feet in the water. Here is a sneaky little picture I took of them.
