We’ve touted it before. And, we will again. That top-deck party boat at Bartlett Lake is THE place to have a party!

A few days before this issue of AZBW/WOT went to press, a group of us (ranging in age from 17 months to 71 years) boarded Barty Doll or Bartlett Belle (or whatever Bryan and Eric Church are going to name the craft) for an all-day cruise around beautiful Bartlett Lake.

The day was a typical Arizona July scorcher, but underway, with the wind and water acting as one giant “swamp cooler,” we were all quite comfortable.

Of course we visited. Of course we ate (and ate) from our onboard picnic table. Of course we enjoyed the scenery and watching other boats, wake boarders, and tubers. But, the real highlights came with our stops.

Almost everyone aboard tried the boat’s water slide. Hesitant at first, once down the slide and into the cool lake waters, the kids and adults alike thoroughly enjoyed their splash and swim. We also rented tubes from the marina, and several of our guests simply lazed around on those behind the boat.

But, the details are just those: details. The actual experience is the only way to know what an excellent time this boat offers. I can’t imagine a better venue than this for business gatherings, family celebrations and reunions, or just a great getaway with those who love the water.

Editor’s Note: We thank all those at Bartlett Lake Marina for another wonderful day and for their caring, careful service to their guests. A special salute to Bryan and Eric Church and to Kyle, who made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our cruise. Also, we are grateful for the photos provided by Rose Werner and her sister Bobbie Bennett.
