After the cyclocross race this morning, a relaxing afternoon was in store for Rachel & me. And being such a beautiful, sunny day, what better way to relax and enjoy the weather than by floating atop a body of water? We invited both my parents, but only got one bite. Since the kayaks were both claimed, my mom dusted the cobwebs off her old inflatable boat and we were a trio.
Thus we filled a cooler, loaded up the truck, and headed to Hartland Pond! As a kid I spent countless hours at this pond because my grandparents lived out their days here, but after they passed my family sold the house. Thankfully, though, all town residents are allowed access via the public beach, so we carried our boats to the water’s edge and hopped in!
My mom is currently recovering from shoulder surgery so she got towed around the Pond, luxuriously, by yours truly.
It was a perfect way to spend the afternoon together and I can’t wait to do it again. Perhaps next time my Mom’s shoulder will be healed and she can do the towing!
