I’m on a Boat!

We finally had the opportunity to get out on the water this weekend and we had quite the boat for the ride. The Lady of the Lake is a paddlewheel boat that takes you on a tour of Lake Minnetonka. paddlewheel boat

Lake Minnetonka is the 9th largest lake in Minnesota. Its name comes from the Dakota language and means “big water.” It was my first time on this large and popular lake, I was glad that I wasn’t driving:

Boats, boats, everywhere!

Everyone was out enjoying the beautiful day, even the dogs!

They took us through a hand-dug channel and we found some wildlife:

And we learned some of the history around the large estates that surround the lake and are built its islands:

We realized that we were being watched. Do you see what I see?
