Pontoon Boating on Lake Perris

(18 photos in gallery)
Lake Perris, a beautiful, man-made lake in Riverside County, was the location of my son’s 31st birthday celebration last weekend. Friends and family pitched in and rented two pontoon boats for the day. We headed this way and that across the lake, sometimes in the same direction, other times opposite ends of the lake. The first few hours had some rough water, strong currents that made swimming extremely difficult, and skies that were threatening storms. Thankfully, once a giant dust storm blew through one of the passes and on by (a very strange sight I must say – reminiscent of stories of the Dust Bowl), the storm clouds cleared out. The rest of the day brought calm waters and wonderful swimming conditions.

We found a great spot to drop anchor in the lake at the furthest side of the island, where few wave runners and other boats ventured past. The water was jump-in perfect temperature! We’d brought enough food along that we could have lived on board for a week or two! The day was really fun, and for most of the group, a drive of less than 90 minutes from their homes in the Los Angeles area. ~SueBee (photos by SueBee)

    What a beautiful spot. I’m glad that the water temperature co-operated.

      Yes, and the weather. There were predictions of lightning storms.
