“We’ve got to live, no matter how many skies have fallen.”
– D. H. Lawrence
There’s something kind of eerie about lakes. I guess I could blame it on watching tons of thriller and horror movies with extremely huge crocodiles, man-eating piranhas, or people drowning and never being found again. I’ve also heard that it’s harder to swim in a lake than it is in an ocean. It’s safe to say that it’s not exactly my first choice when it comes to going on a trip.
My family ended up choosing Bass Lake as our destination. We rented a pontoon boat with a grill and spent the entire day on the lake. It was awesome. We also rented a canoe and a kayak. I didn’t really swim as much as I would if I were in a pool or the ocean. I mean, it was fun, but I was still a bit wary. The sun was shining and the soft breeze made the weather just perfect for different water activities as you can see below.
After this experience, I’m obviously looking forward to heading out to the lake again in the future. Maybe next time it would be great to try a speedboat or hop on a jet ski. I highly recommend that you should experience this for yourself if you haven’t tried it yet.
My tips for this trip:
- Water shoes. Yes, the bottom of the lake hurts. It’s filled with rocks and sharp edges. I highly recommend Keen sandals.
2. Bring lots of food and water. If you rent a boat with a grill like we did that’s even better.
3. Bring your camera.
4. Bring a waterproof dry bag especially for kayaking and canoeing. This saves your gadgets, wallets and other stuff from getting wet.
5. Have fun!
