Album 1 of 2 at The Lake Norman Sandbar also known as "Beachin Island" from Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend 2015. NOTE: Album 2 of 2 is posted below the Bootleggers Album. The weather was perfect the lake temperature was a little cool but unquestionably refreshing. We haven't seen this many boats and people at the Sandbar in probably 5 years (Including Holiday Weekends). We have no idea what changed this year but there had to be 250 boats with 1000+ people rafted up in 3 primary lines. The Saturday raft was put together very well and no one had to spend much time adjusting anchors and re-setting the lines.
