|As we paddled away from the dock, this was the view.|
Yesterday, Father's Day, my son, grand.toddler and I rented a small paddleboat for 30 minutes at $9.00. It was perfect. You are given life jackets, release the boat from its mooring on the dock (a chain) and climb in. In this case, Ariella sat in the middle.
It was a cloudy, cool morning and, in fact, so early there were only a few other boaters. Or joggers and walkers! We saw kayaks with fishermen, ducks, Canadian Geese and the best of all, water lillies in bloom...beautiful white flowers! Just a taste, but enough at that. Dark and light greens punctuated with colorful boats made the day--or, in our case, the 30 minutes! It was perfect!
|From the boat, these water lillies are spectacular!|
|A new boat ramp can be seen here together with a bicyclist.|
