Road Trip Day 6, Friday - Smith Mountain Lake

We got the deluxe tour of Smith Mountain Lake.  The shoreline is crowded with homes of various sizes.

Some are much more modest. (my style)
Some are sprawling mansions.

The lake is formed by damming the Roanoke River.  The level is relatively stable and trees come down to the water line.
Today is our last full day with Alan and Virginia as we will leave tomorrow morning to find our way to the Blue Ridge Parkway.  They live on Smith Mountain Lake in the community of Moneta, Virginia, very near the lake but not quite in sight of the water.  They bought a nice pontoon boat in February and took us on a tour of the lake.

Wow, look at the big house! Like you, I'd rather have something smaller. I always wonder who lives in these mansions... I mean, it must feel empty.

I bet there is some fish in that lake!
