Grapevine Lake, Texas ~ last Friday night

One cool way to beat the 100 degree heat!  Get invited for a ride on our best friend's boat.

Houses on the lake aren't allowed to have docks?  Our group headed to the marina from Coppell.  I guess it helps to keep the land surrounding the lake natural looking.  Like the the above picture.

We headed out on a Friday about 7:00 PM, still about 102 degrees outside.

It is a pretty large sized lake, the Gaylord Texan Resort is at one end. 

Yes, I will be glad to live in the guest house at this place.  I promise to be quiet, you won't even know I am there.  

Another huge place on a cliff.

We headed to the "beach".  You just anchor and float.

Our gourmet dinner.  Hey, those are chick-fil-a nuggets! We went all out.

Sunset with friends and finished off with fireworks over the Gaylord Resort.  Great way to start our weekend.  

I love the blue boat! We are keeping our calendar free every Friday night, just in case we get a call to cool off and start another weekend the right way!


  1. This looks like so much fun!! Guess the heat isn't so bad when you are surrounded by WATER! Great pics and post!

  2. Oh how nuce to be invited on a boat ride, Your photos are beautiful!..Christine

  3. It's been years since I've been to Lake Grapevine. The homes are fabulous. Thanks for the boatride and sunset!

  4. That house looks like maybe even the garage would be an OK place to live!
    Sounds like a fun day. :)

  5. How fun! I haven't been to that lake in quite awhile other than going to the Gaylord a couple of times. I used to go that lake all the time when I was younger.
    By the way, Chik-fil-a nuggets are the best!

  6. Looks like a lot of fun. I have never been out on the lake, that needs to change.
    Thanks for sharing your fun time!
