At one o’clock we took an interesting narrated scenic boat cruise on Lake Havasu. We began by passing under the world famous London Bridge and out onto the lake. Each block of the bridge was disassembled in England, and reconstructed in Lake Havasu City to become the second largest tourist attraction in Arizona.
Lake Havasu, a reservoir, was formed in 1949 when Parker Dam was built 15 miles south on the Colorado River. There are 4 major dams and 36 smaller dams on the river. This is the busiest boating lake in the southwest United States. Camping along the lake is accessible only by water.
A Lighthouse Club is responsible for building 1/3 size replicas of famous lighthouses in the U.S. These lighthouses have increased safety on the lake and there will be a total of 40 when the club has completed them.
The staff graciously treated our Adventure Caravan group to a Lasagna dinner tonight. Thank you Sally, John, Madi and Spence.
