The Water - Sharing the Fun
We all know water and oil don't mix. Sometimes neither do the activities on the lake it seems. Peace and quiet, long-weekend peaks, wake boarding, canoeing, reading time on the dock, screaming kids (and sometimes adults too...),your neighbours loud music, fishing boats, speed boats, big boats and even bigger boats, little boats, night skies and dock lights and well; it can get a just a little overwhelming.
So what's the solution? Managing expectations? Being tolerant? And probably remembering the impact we all have on each other and thinking of the other person too.
POINTS TO PONDER:
PWC's, Wake Board Boats and Slow Cruisers
Towing Sports, Water Skiing and Wakeboarding
