The kids had to go to school on Memorial Day as a snow make up day. That could only mean one thing - Boat Date! As soon as the kids were on the bus, my bride and I hightailed it to the boat with books/magazines and cooler in hand. By 8am, we had anchored in a nice quiet cove by Lake Norman State Park. Out of the way of the holiday boat traffic circus in the main channel, we relaxed, took some dips to cool off, and even went for a short paddle exploration into some other coves. We ended it with a nice waterfront view lunch at the Midway Boathouse Grill. It was great except that the time went by so fast and we had to be back to meet the kids off the school bus way too soon.
On this Memorial Day, we remember those who gave their lives for our great country.
