I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Discover Boating. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
I am proud to announce I am an Ambassador for Discover Boating! I love the Summer, and I am thrilled to be fortunate enough to live in sunny Florida. We have plenty of waterways, oceans and lakes to explore for the experienced to a novice. You can paddle down a river in a canoe or kayak or take lessons to learn to sail the world. You can even ride on the back of a steamboat or a dolphin cruise to see the wonders our oceans have to offer.
Ever since I was a little kid, I have had an affinity for the water. I owe my love of the water and all it has to offer to my Uncle David. My uncle used to get old boats and fix them up, sometimes he would even make kit boats from scratch, and then sell them. It seemed like every time we came to visit, he would take us out on another boat. My favorite memory of the sea and my entire childhood was on one of these boats with my uncle. It was a catamaran similar to the boat pictured above and he was sailing it on one hull. I was on the hull closest to the water; and when the hull went up in the air, I was so close to the water rushing by I remember I could have stuck out my tongue and touched it. It was exhilarating and free!
