River Regatta

Posted on August 22nd, 2010 by Jean


I’m so proud of Tom (above in yellow shirt) for filming the Bullhead City River Regatta 2010. He took great video of the festivities. It was originally estimated that 11,000 participants floated nine miles down the Colorado River between Laughlin, Nevada and Bullhead City, Arizona. Now numbers are closer to 15,000 people floating for 3-4 hours in 109° heat.
 
If you’d like to take part next year, visit the regatta’s official website or like it on FaceBook.
 
It took me a few days to edit the 90 minutes of video down to 4 minutes of highlights. So far, we’ve had over 3,000 views on YouTube. Everyone has been very positive, stating how much fun they had or how they won’t miss it next year.
 

 
If I were to float down the river, I’d need a buoyant tube, good friends, and cold beverages.

Naked Pirate

Posted on May 31st, 2010 by Jean

I didn’t see any naked pirates, but I did see bikini clad wenches this Memorial Day Weekend at the Naked Pirate Beach Bar. The holiday marks Pirate Cove Resort’s one year anniversary. The resort is located on Park Moabi Road, 11 miles southeast of Needles California, along the Colorado River.
 
Even though the resort was packed with partiers, we had no wait at the bar for cocktails and a less than five minute wait for a table in the restaurant. Our window seat overlooked the balcony bar plus the river, and there was no shortage of eye candy. Boats of all sizes cruised up and down, and the water taxis were in constant use.
 
Our lunch was served quickly and the food was delicious! The fried calamari was served on a bed of french fries, and the pulled pork sandwiches were so large, we could have split one.
 
The dj’s music wasn’t too loud, and the dance floor had more lurkers than dancers. Before leaving, I had to take photos and video of the scene. I will definitely return here, and will bring the children if it isn’t a busy holiday.
