Biking On The Water

Needing a little something different to do on a hot summer day? This just might be your ticket. You can be out on the water, get a little exercise, and if the weather is hot enough take a dip and cool off.

Paddle boats are perfect for a great family activity.

While we were up in  Wallawa Lake we rented paddle boats for a while. Most larger lakes, especially those in a touristy area, will have paddle boats for rent. They are inexpensive and very easy to use. As long as you know how to peddle a bike you can do a paddle boat, so they are perfect for all ages.

Keep in mind, that no matter how hard you paddle your little heart out, you will not go very fast, so don't get too far out if you are on a time crunch, or only have your boats for an hour (Yes, I am speaking from experience here ;o): paddle boats are for that perfect, leisurely activity. We had fun just paddling out and then floating there talking. A few of us even jumped in, though that glacier water was a bit to cold for most of us.

So, pack up the kids, head down to the lake, and get a paddle boat for something inexpensive and different to do.
