Jet Skiing Lake Havasu

Our last stop before heading home was at Lake Havasu. We had always heard that it was a crazy spring break town. It really wasn’t as bad as we thought it would be, plenty of old retired people too! But it definitely partially lived up to its reputation. There was one area along the beach filled with high school and college kids that were completely trashed and mostly naked. But other than this it what a pretty place to see!

We decided to rent jet skis for an hour. Jeb had only been once before and I had never been on one.

As was a common theme on this trip, it was very windy that day. This meant large waves and very choppy water. I made jeb drive the entire time because I was afraid I would flip it. Even still it was kind of a terrifying ride!

Looking a little disheveled by the wind!

The ride away from the beach wasn’t too bad, but fighting the wind and waves getting back was pretty intense riding. I was gripping Jeb so tightly that unless he fell off, I wasn’t going anywhere!

This is the “London Bridge” in Lake Havasu. The city paid millions of dollars to have this purchased and shipped over from London, when the one there was being redone. Seems that money could have been used in better ways… but at least it is pretty!

We watched a guy using one of those water jet pack things and it was really awesome to see!

These mini lighthouses were all over the place in Lake Havasu. Apparently they are replicas of actual lighthouse and are to scale, just 1/3 of the actual size.

We ended a fantastic trip with a nice dinner by the water! We also explored the breweries while we were there and were surprised to find some pretty good ones!

This was the restaurant we ate dinner at, the Turtle Beach Bar.
