7 Ways to Explore New England by Boat


Author: Guest Author

I lived for a year in Colorado. The mountains are strikingly beautiful, but there was one main reason that I only lasted a year- water! I adore being around water. Any kind of water will work, but I want it all- lakes, rivers, harbors and the open seas. My family has a long history with the water and that is a history that I continue to pass on to my kids. 20 years ago I settled in New England because it is an ideal place to continue my love affair with all things water. When you visit my area, exploring New England by water is one of the best ways to experience the best it has to offer. Here are some of my favorite ways to enjoy New England by boat: Continue reading

Life Is Better On A Boat


Author: Guest Author

It’s officially summer and the temperatures in South Louisiana are heating up, fast! When I was little, summer meant pool parties and going to the beach. Now that I’m older, I still frequent the pool, but getting away to the beach takes coordination and time we (my husband and I) don’t always have. Instead, taking our boat out can be a day trip or even an overnight trip (if we stay at our friend’s camp), weather permitting!

A little back story: Josh bought a boat three years ago, before we even got married (priorities, am I right?). I’ll admit I was little wary at first, I mean the only boat we’d ever had before that was a canoe. But, ever since then, it’s been a staple in our weekend plans. After all, weekends on the boat are weekends well spent.

Discover Boating This Summer

I kinda hate to admit just how wrong I was about this.

Especially since my husband was the one who was right.

But, I was oh-so-wrong about boating and boats.

You see, I thought we didn’t need a boat and that boating was expensive. My husband would show me pictures of boats and I’d glance at them, make some sort of non-committal noise and then go back to whatever it was that I had been doing.

But, then we went out on a friend’s boat a few times.

And suddenly, I got it.

Exploring Boats As A Family


Author: Guest Author

I remember learning how to water ski when I was 7 years old. I had snoopy skis that were tied together so I wouldn’t end up in the splits. I started off standing in about a foot of water and taking off from the shore line. Over the summers I continued to improve and by high school I was able to ski slalom. We had family friends with an awesome lake house and we spent every Labor Day of high school on the lake inner tubing and skiing.

Summer Solstice on the Lake


Author: Guest Author

We had a unique opportunity to hit the lake this last Wednesday, and we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to celebrate the summer solstice on the water. Being on a boat is one of my favorite things, albeit I don’t get to do it very often at all. The breeze, smells of summer, and sound of the boat slipping through the water are just the highlights. That’s not to mention the memories your making with your people. They just can’t be beat. Basically, what I’m saying is you need to book a boat now because you absolutely will not regret it!
