I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Discover Boating. I received collateral to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Being outdoors by the lake in the summer makes me very happy. There is something about the scenery and the sound of the water splashing that is very calming, and this mama loves a nice calm evening.
Here was a beautiful shot of our view the last time we were at the lake.
While we are on the lake, we love to fish. When I was small I was always my dad’s fishing buddy and loved to get out there and try to catch the biggest fish. Today, we love to take our daughter with us and are teaching her how to fish also. Our time at the lake has created such fun memories that can continue to be passed down for generations to come.
While on the lake, it is important to remember boating safety. DiscoverBoating.com is a great resource to visit to learn more about boating, safety, and what type of boating equipment that you may need before you go out on the water.
I enjoy coming to this site to research the type of boat that we may need depending on what water activities we will be doing on the lake. Occasionally, depending on what water activities we decide upon, we like to rent boats if our family doesn’t have the particular boat available. For instance, you use a different type of boat for tubing than you would if you were going on a big fishing expedition.
Boat maintenance is something that is very important also. Here in the Midwest, we have to winterize them to protect them against the elements. Keeping up with the maintenance on a boat is much like that of a car, you have to make sure that the oil is changed and that you do various checks throughout the year. DiscoverBoating.com has all of that information, as well as where you can rent boats, boating clubs and organizations, and even boating information for kids. It truly is a great resource to visit before you go out on the water.
What type of boating do you like to do? Would you rather troll in a fishing boat, or lounge on a pontoon?
