Destination Days: Day on the Water

August 7, 2017
2 min. read

What’s your favorite place to go on vacation? Many people’s top spots revolve around water, such as a beachfront rental property or a lakeside cabin overlooking the shore. If you don’t have any water-centered vacations coming up this summer, consider planning a day trip to a local body of water like a creek, lake, or pond.

There’s something about the soothing roar of the ocean or the reflection of clouds on a lake’s glassy surface… Or perhaps it’s the excitement associated with water sports like surfing, skiing, tubing, and boogie-boarding… Or maybe we just appreciate the cool breeze that comes in from off the water, or the option to go for a refreshing swim whenever the sun gets to be overbearing.

Whatever it is… days on the water are always a joy. They also make for the perfect picnic setting—a scenic dining experience with a glorious view. So pack up your picnic baskets and head over to your favorite locale for some fishy fun!
