My 20s weren’t a great time in a lot of ways, but I had a lot of great times on a pontoon boat on Lake Norman. There was a period where we were out on the lake almost every summer weekend.
Naturally I jumped at a chance to go out on the boat last weekend. I do have to say that going on the boat in your late 30s with a toddler is a very different experience. (I would strongly encourage anyone not to go out on a boat alone with a 4-year-old.)
