lake powell

I just got back from a week-long adventure on Lake Powell that was equal parts heavenly and harrowing. We rented/captained a 59-foot three-story house boat with a steep learning curve (to say the least). My childhood at the helm of 13-foot Boston Whaler did help with navigating buoys but beaching the behemoth was basically... trial by fire (or water, as the case may be)! Thankfully, another dozen-strong family on shore came to our rescue! Despite the additional (and daily) stress of figuring out the generator, anchors, wind direction/drift, water recession, and sulfur fumes, all the while contending with 100+ temperatures, we did just fine. We marveled at the otherworldly buttes, plateaus, crumbling cliffs, and deep emerald green waters. We water-skied, wake-surfed, paddle-boarded, swam, hiked, cliff-jumped and wake-surfed some more. And I even got to bust out my summer holiday finest, including the A Piece Apart dress, the reversible Marysia bikini, below, the floral Mille dress, last pic, plus this Tory Burch caftan (to also be worn excessively this fall with jeans and long shorts), this And Other Stories swimsuit (cute under an open button-down), and this macrame trimmed Jaline cover-up.
