The reservoir just down the street from our house opened up for the season only about a week ago, right after ice out. Elizabeth has been helping me over the last 2 years put the finishing touches on it so it was only fitting that she get to come along on the initial shake down cruise. Andrew on the other hand really didn't want to go in the boat at all. He was certain that the engine was going to be too loud and he generally doesn't like to ride anything that moves so he got off to a bit of a rough start.
The boat ran great and we all had a real good time in our little boat. I'm really looking forward to taking it up to the mountains this year and exploring some of the lakes up there and doing some fishing.
On the way back to the boat ramp Elizabeth helped to drive and did a great job. Andrew also seemed to be enjoying himself as well this time around. I'm looking forward to our next adventure on the water!
