Best vacation in a long time!!!!
Now I know this is a fishing forum, but I felt like I should share this in hopes that maybe I could encourage someone else who shares the love of whatever the waters has to offer. Me, my wife, and kids along with some long time friends took a vacation to Lake Martin, in Dadeville, Alabama. Pulled the boat from the salt and put it in the fresh. When I was younger I had a passion for water skiing, and went almost every other day during the summertime. I guarantee I have skiied just about every inch of the local bayous and rivers, and as a kid spent time on Smith Lake doing this as well. I hadn't skiied in about 6 years, so was looking very forward to going. We rented a house for four days, on what seemed to be the perfect spot on that lake. Once we got there and got unloaded, we wasted no time in getting wet. We did everything from tubing, skiing, wakeboarding, and kneeboarding, and trying to teach our kids the same with lots of laughs. This vacation brought back a lot of memories for me, and hoped to build some for my family. We were definetely probably the only center consoles on the lake but looked the best I assure you. This trip really took the meaning of a vacation to a level of what a family vacation is supposed to be. Didn't wear shoes or a shirt the whole time I was there, and never left the house until time to come home. Grilled out every meal, and ate like kings. I know a lot of people like Disney and Universal and such things as that, but I am going to tell you, that with kids, that aint no vacation, that's work. I guarantee my kids had ten times the fun these four days than they ever had a week at Disney, and you actually get to spend time with your kids, family, and friends. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we have rebooked the house for the last week in July for another vacation there, and might even do one more in September. Again, I hope this inspires some one around here to go, anywhere for that matter, but have a true vacation, and enjoy yourself!!!
Happy 4th to everyone.
