Bull Shoals Lake Day 5: Houseboat for Sale?

Mike was able to capture the sunrise from the top of the boat on our last morning because his sore finger woke him up early.

Just after the sun rose, a lone duck flew in from nowhere. He hung around the boat for a bit so Mike threw him some bread pieces.

We left the mooring and cruised back to the marina early. We said our goodbyes to Sven #19. As we left the lake and turned the car toward home, we drove over the dam to get a good look at the White River.

The nine hour drive home was pretty brutal but we survived. In a lot of ways, the trip was much different than we expected. Since the lake was flooded, the diving was a little disappointing. We had hoped to catch more fish including a walleye or two. The lake itself was much more beautiful than we expected and the experience of living on a houseboat was much more enjoyable than we expected. Our plans of one day owning a larger sailboat are no more. The first night home we spent googling houseboats for sale. Maybe one day...
