    No Matter What, I Love It

    I just got home from camping and boating all weekend since Saturday. My phone fell in the toilet at the Campgrounds on Sat and wouldn't work until now. It has a bright blotch on the screen now. On the bright side, I'm tan! When I was boating, my uncle was going fast over some...

    I do not own a boat but have friends

    that do. I love to go out into the marina and pull up the anchor and cruise around the waterway for a hours. We girls will normally make a nice lunch for everyone to enjoy. After lunch, we all jump into the water and go skinny dipping. Many of us will lay out on the deck and...

    I Want To Learn To Sail And Someday Sail Around The World....

    I don't know why, but all my life I've had a love of being on the water and a desire to sail. I don't know where it came from... I've never owned a sailboat. My lifestyle (I'm a biker, a hunter, a gardner, and a lover of the mountains) choices aren't even very compatible...

    This Is the Life!

    There is no greater feeling than being in my own boat, out on the open seas. It makes me feel alive and free. The sea spray in my face, and the wind in my hair as I glide along in the water. At any time I can break out the poles and fish my troubles away. One day I'll just get...

    My husband I have friends with a cabin cruiser

    near Fort Lauderdale, FL. We go with them and others a couple times a month for a weekend of boating, seeing different sights, swimming, sunbathing, and eating prepared foods and drinking soft drinks.

    Holidays On the Canals.

    I love this we do it every year with my Mum and Dad. Its nice because you all have to pull together as a family. We take turns at steering the boat and working the locks and then have barbecues at night. There is usually very little TV signal so we play cards or a board game with...

    Been Too Long Since I've Done It

    Not since I've been in middle school have I gone out on the water. Right now it's not very feasible for me to do so what with all my moving around and the like, plus a motor boat isn't really in my finances. I just miss the feeling of being on the lake and taking it easy. Our old...

    First In, Last Out!

    I love my boat so much. I think I'd lose my mind if I didn't have it. It's on it's last legs and I'm having to repair something on it every year. I really don't have the money for it, but there is no way I'll get rid of it. If it were a choice between fixing the hot water...

    Had the privilege and opportunity to get out on

    the boat and enjoy the sandbar at Nixon Point here in Miami. Even if there weren't that many boats and people out there like in the past, it was still a joy and a blast to be out on the water, even if there was a baby shark near by! :)~

    I love going boating

    and swimming nude. When we all jump into our boat we are all bathing suits for the guys and bikinis for the girls. After we get away from the beachhead, we all remove our swimming attire and go naked into the water. It is great to have the freedom to be naked with others and...
