Being a big-time boater, the winter can leave me missing the sunshine and the water I so frequently enjoy in summer! So, I decided to rack my brain and come up with some inspiration on how to still enjoy boating this winter, and get your family excited for next summer's boating season too!
Roche Harbor is such a secluded and beautiful place in the Northwest that not many have been. If you haven’t visited, this post is to inspire you! There is so much to do from enjoying wildlife and scenery, to eating, and even relaxing at the spa. All the deets are right here for you!
The boating scene is an incredible part of the lifestyle here in the greater Seattle Area. Not only are we lucky to be surrounded by the Puget Sound, but right in the middle of our city sits Lake Union which boasts beautiful waterfront views and places to dine out. Lucky for us boaters, Lake Union has some restaurant gems that feature docks for boaters to pull up to, so you can enjoy a meal or cocktail by water. On this outing we launched our Cobalt R5 in Bellevue and motored over to Lake Union for brunch at Westward Seattle.
Car seat safety in our culture seems pretty cut and dry, and the majority of people understand it. However, a recent (almost drowning) emergency at work made me realize that safety with our kids around water is not as well outlined. As a person working in the marine industry, I do feel a strong obligation to advocate for water safety for all the children out there - boating or not! This post contains good information on when kids should wear life jackets, and how to find the right one to fit them. Thank you for reading, and please do share with other parents out there!
