Where Do I Park the Boat?

Perhaps, here?
Really, I did not know that these places exist!

Actually, it is not a boat parking. It is actually the storage of rental boats of Aquaholics.

Anyhow, the Director of Al's department sponsored an outing in Lake Travis on a barge. According to Al, they anchored at some place in the Lake and they started jumping out of the barge to play in the water. (Al did not though.) Beware the water snake! Yikes!!!

Meanwhile, Al discovered that Aquaholics also rent out pontoons (small boat with "balancers" on each side of the boat) for about $65/hour. So one of these days, we will go.

I am not very comfortable with it though... no one among us have done it before. Although our neighbor said it was easy to control and navigate. But what if the pontoon tips over? (that's why it has balancers!) What if there are water snakes? what if???

Any of you tried this already? Send me tips (aside from the sunblock and the life vest)...

Anyhow, I'm sure I'll get over those. And when we eventually go, you will see the photos here too!

Pontoon boats are soooo fun. They go slow and steady and allow for a leisurely ride across the lake. Many people dive from the sides and have even been known to BBQ on them. Not sure this is really safe. FIRE on a boat floating above water? Oh well. You gotta try it! I am pretty sure you'll love it. How are things going for you these days with your journey to parenthood? Thanks for the comment on my journey a while back. Very sweet of you. You're in my thoughts and prayers and I'm here if you ever need anything.

Thanks Nicole! That's another reassurance about these pontoon boats. Will bring back those photos once we go do it!

In response to your comment tonight, my brother was actually born at Clark. My parents loved living their and met some of their best friends while stationed there. Good memories. Good people.
