Camping and Scuba extravaganza!
So, Wednesday afternoon, we drove to Bullhead City, AZ which is about an hour away from Las Vegas and just across the Colorado River from Laughlin. They have these great camping sites right on the river and that's where we set up camp.
We ate our favorite camping food which is egg, cheese and ham, grilled on an english muffin in our grilled cheese maker that we held over the fire. We ate waaaaaay to many of them...but we always do.
Then it was s'mores! We ditch the graham cracker and just stick the chocolate right in the middle of the marshmallow and roast them until it's all melty....we ate too many of them too.
The next day, we packed up our stuff and drove to Cabinsite Cove on Lake Mojave. The water was sooooooo cold...even in our wet suits. We went down to about 60 feet and the water was so clear we could see everything (except for the thing we were looking for).
After a rest, some grapes, some water, and some pretzles, I took over the navigation and we went down again. The water seemed even colder the second time...but no matter, in a couple of minutes I found the sunken school bus we were looking for. It had been sunk there for search and rescue training. We swam all around it, but we were both too chicken to go inside. We floated there, gesturing "after you", "no, after you," until we were both way to cold to stay down any longer.
It was a great trip!
