On Saturday morning, the River-Rama began on Broad Creek with 5 boats rafting up for some fun on the water.”Miss Grace” joined the raft up and did a great job serving as the “food truck”, providing drinks and lunch service.

A quick shower came up just after lunch, causing a quick return to the docks; but everyone quickly settled in poolside for the afternoon.Later that evening, a prime rib dinner, followed by dancing capped off the weekend’s festivities.Hope to see everyone again next year for one of River Dunes favorite weekends!
