Everyday Adventure - Day 30 - Boats

I really didn't think I'd get anywhere near the water, so I didn't think I'd have the opportunity to photograph boats.  I had chores to do, and errands to run. Hubby and I had a brunch date. We were going to make some paper boats to photograph, but it turns out I didn't need to. One of my errands took me out to the mall. When I returned to my car, I found these parked beside me:

They weren't the only watercraft cruising the town. Everywhere I went a saw boats, kayaks, canoes and paddle boards on their way to the water.  

After supper Hubby and I decided to head to the water ourselves. (OK, we really headed out for gelato, but the gelato shop is located conveniently near the water.)  It was a beautiful evening for a walk at the marina. (And for gelato.)

There were more boats than I could photograph.  Even the under-construction water park is anchored by a pirate ship. (Anchored. HA!)

The thing is, it is unlikely that we would have headed to the marina if I weren't taking part in Everyday Adventures. Our evenings are usually spent quietly at home while we mentally prepare ourselves for the next day of work. Not even the call of gelato can get us out the door. I'm so grateful that Tammy of Rowdy Kittens organized A Month of Everyday Adventures. The challenge was just what I needed to inspire me. Well, that and gelato.
