Too Early in the Year to Dream of Party Cove?


I don't know about you, but today's sudden warm up in temperature has me thinking of summer and, with it, the Lake of the Ozark's Party Cove.

As I reported back in 2005, it can be pretty wild down in Missou-rah's backwater Sodom and Gomorrah. On any given summer weekend you're likely to see more than your fill of public drunkenness, nudity and sex.

No, it ain't exactly family friendly -- until now.

This morning one of my Internet trollers (I have a small army of them) sent me a link to a new Party Cove Web site. Over the years, the notorious inlet has spawned dozens of Internet sites stuffed full of X-rated photos snapped at the cove. (I'll let you do the Google search for those on your own.)

But is the first I've heard of that comes with the wholesome .org tag. The Web site actually appears to be a sales vehicle for Lake Ozark property, but it does have a few photos that let you get the basic idea of Party Cove.

Lame, yes. But won't cost you your job if viewed from your work computer.
