I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Discover Boating. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation in sharing how to choose a boat and other tips.
Some of my best summertime memories have included the water. I remember my mother joking with me that I was born a fish because it didn’t matter if it was swimming, fishing in a local stream, sitting on the beach, white water rafting, or out on the lake. I just wanted to be near water.
There wasn’t a lot of opportunity for the beach unless we were driving down to Old Orchard, which we did a few times each summer. But there was a lot more opportunity for spending time on a lake. My uncle’s family had a camp on a lake that we visited fairly regularly, and the family of one of my friends also had a camp on a different lake.
There was always a lot to do at camp – laying out in a hammock, fishing, cooking out. And, of course, getting out on the lake. I could stay out all day tubing, if given the chance.
