The Pedalboat

We have a beautiful pond in front of the yard and it’s full of fish.  It’s deepest part is about eight feet, I think.  On good days when there’s not pollen and it not cloudy you can see the fish swimming around.  We have perch, bass and blue gill in the pond.  We also have some massive carp to keep the pond clean.

I love the gazebo but my favorite part of the pond is riding around in our pedalboat.  Hubby bought it for me for Mother’s Day a few years ago.  Last year we didn’t bring it out of storage but this year we did and I had high hopes of spending a good deal of time in it reading and relaxing.

All cleaned up and ready to float.

It seats four comfortably and can seat three up front and two in the back.  There's cup holders built in and a cubby hole in the back for books, towels, food, drinks.

Well, I haven’t been it but once since we brought it out of storage and that was to empty the rain water out of it so it wouldn’t sink.  It’s been horrible boating weather even on a small pond.  It has a lovely canopy that goes over the top to shade you from the rays of the sun.

With tomorrow being the first day of August I’m hopeful that the sun will be seen more and we can play on the pond as we have in the past.
