Even though it’s almost time for to head back to school, summer isn’t over yet.  Here in Western NY, the weather is just about perfect – mid 80s, a light breeze – not too hot, not to cold!  It’s the perfect time to be outdoors, soaking up all the sunshine and fun we can before school, Fall, and sooner than we would like, snow!

One of the best ways to enjoy the great outdoors in Western NY, or wherever you call home, is on a boat! Boating offers so much in the way of family fun, whether you prefer fishing, sailing, or playing on Jet Skis!


My daughter spent six weeks this summer with her dad in Oklahoma and I think the highlight of her summer was studying for and earning her Jet Ski license!  While I wasn’t there to experience it with her, I know she made a lifetime of memories this summer! I remember being out on friends’ ski boats in the summer at the lake when I was her age, and those are precious memories!

    Here in Seattle we are big on boats. I grew up with them, and even if we don’t own our own we know plenty that do. Sometimes we’ll have girls nights by chartering a sailboat (captain included). I didn’t know you needed a jet ski license!

    When I lived in South Florida, we had jet skis. They are so much fun! I was driving jet skis before a car. Water activities are a must for the summer heat.

    Congrats to your daughter for her licence, I wish we had that kind of weather in the UK currently its wet and miserable. I wish I had a summer vacation on a boat but last week I was on a canoe in Lithuania does that count?
