Christmas in Lake Havasu

Yes, it's another Christmas post in January. Suck it up people, my memory is terrible. I'd forgotten that I'd even taken pictures of our holiday in Havasu until I was looking through my pictures for a different post.

After spending Christmas Day at my parent's house, Dan and I packed up the car and headed up to Lake Havasu City, on the Arizona-California border, where Dan's parents' live.

Although this is kind of our yearly tradition, we added something new to the mix this year: a ferry trip across the lake for lunch!

We got on the boat at the bridge, headed across the lake on a very chilly day, and had a warm lunch on the other side at the casino on the reservation. It's actually only my third ride ever on a boat. That's what happens when you're a desert rat!

For those of you who don't know, Lake Havasu's is known for housing the London Bridge. As crazy as it sounds, in the 1970's, a very rich man disassembled the old London Bridge, brick by brick, had it sent across the Atlantic and the majority of the USA, and reassembled in the middle of nowhere. 

Even though I've been to Havasu at least a dozen times, the small town always finds a way to surprise me.
