Four Points Bulletin

Travels north, east, south, and west of our Oceanside home base.

A trip to Lake Havasu wouldn’t be complete without getting on a boat so we booked the Copper Canyon tour through Sunset Charter and Tour Co. Copper Canyon is an abandoned mine, the largest copper producing mine along the Colorado River. Now it is a spring break hotspot, where boaters go to jump into the river water from cliff faces of various heights, egging each other on with delight. Our tour also included information about the various lighthouses along the shoreline. There are 28 little lighthouses in total, all of which are miniature versions of famous lighthouses found in the United States and Canada. They aren’t just novelties but functional navigational aids, the west coast lighthouses all have green lights and the east coast all have red. So with red lights are on our right, we headed back to the London Bridge, as we watched a boat race a seaplane from its starting position (something I think we will never witness again). Only in Lake Havasu!

    Love reading all about your fun adventures. Water color is so pretty. 😊

    1. Agreed! The water color was epic. So tropical looking, even though I am sure it was frigid. Not Alps frigid though…
