Maurice decided that seeing this area by boat would add another dimension to our time here and went and got a license to drive a boat with a motor. You don’t need a licence to use a sail boat for some reason. I don’t remember needing one for any kind of boat in the States either unless things have changed. So, with license in hand we rented a boat for half a day. To begin with Maurice wanted to buy a boat but I’ve been down that road in my “former life” and I know what a hassle that can be. As some one said, “The two happiest days in your life are when you buy a boat and when you sell it”. I’ve only been on a lake in a small boat and found parts of the open water we were on pretty rough. We will have to see if it was just rough on that day or if it will always be.
