This Is How We Discover Boating This Year
Vacation this year took us from our resort area in Big Bear to the world’s fun place in Miami. Yes, we went from one lake to another. For the adults, this was a mixed trip of business and pleasure. Lee had her residency for her PhD work so we chose to take the whole family and make it a summer thing. For the kids, it was all vacation. Of course, we got to spend some time with our daughter who goes to school in Miami.
The weather was weird this year. When it was not raining, the boys spend most of their time in or on the water. Between the pool and the lake, this was a water filled trip. My brother-in-law has all of the water toys; boat, jet skis, and inflatables. He likes to take the kids out on the jet ski. My brother-in-law mixes speed with safety in a way that only comes with expertise. He and the kids always wear a life vest and the children know what to do in case of accident or emergency. With that, he guns it, going fast by a child’s standards. I have seen him go a lot faster without a child onboard.
I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Dad Central for Discover Boating. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
