I have a pretty small boat. Just a simple aluminum boat, about 13 feet long. Its got its own trailer so I can tow it, I don’t need to put it on the roof of the car and that’s good because doing that is hard work.
Last week was school holidays to I took may family, including my kids, away for a few days.
4 days actually at a small resort about 4 hours drive away. Unfortunately there was a really strong wind and heavy rain when we left and I thought it was going to be a really rough drive but the wind dropped and the rain stopped after about a half hour, the sun came out and it turned into a pretty nice day. A great day actually.
And it was a really nice holiday resort and the kids loved it. So many things for kids to do. The killer of a good holiday is bored kids, if you’ve got bored kids then they aren’t happy, and if they aren’t happy you aren’t happy. But here there was so many things to do for the kids.
Nothing is worse than bored kids. They get in your face about it and so you’re irritated and they’re bored. I like to read a book while I’m away on holidays so having bored kids interferes with the reading.
But the kids were happy over the weekend, which was nice. There were so many things that they could do, including jumping up and down on this huge plastic blow up thing, and they just loved that. That alone kept them happy.
And in the games room there was something that the kids loved too, a massive television that had a kids movie showing every night so they just sat in there all the time in the evenings.
And there was also an outdoor swimming pool so they played in that for hours too. They both love swimming so that pool paid for the holiday.
But I mentioned my boat. I took the boat along because there was a river there and I could take them boating on the river. And it’s useful for taking stuff along too. The kids bikes wouldn’t fit in the car but no problem getting them in the boat. So the kids got to ride their bikes.
So it was really worth taking the boat along. We spent some time on the local river puttering up and down looking at the scenery and having a good time. We stopped and spent an hour or so having lunch while the kids ate and had a swim in the river. And we got to sit and read a book in the sun.
And the local lake was great too. Last summer I bought an tire tube and rope and towed the kids around with it so I brought it along this time too and they loved it just as much. In fact it was difficult to get them off it. They just wanted to spend the day there.
So that’s our holiday with the boat. It was fun, the kids loved it and we all had a good time.
