Camping

I think we used our boat more this past week than all of last summer! Four years ago, Jim and I bought a boat and even though it has a cabin, we mainly use it for day trips to go a bay about a half hour away from where we live and have stayed on it once overnight. This past week, I was on vacation and Jim's two sons stayed with us. Jim suggested that we take the boat across the lake and stay for a couple nights at a metropark with a marina. He was unable to take the whole week off, but the marina is closer to his work so we left a car there so he could work half days. We had a great time! There was a lot for the boys to do with the beach, pool, putt-putt, etc. and even though the weather was hot, luckily, our boat came with a portable AC unit, which made sleeping quite comfortable. While the topic of a larger boat did come up, we will definitely be planning a similar trip for the near future.
