If you don't already have plans for this weekend...by which I mean, if you aren't going to the Bourbon Festival...try this::::
A few weekends ago the hubby and I (and the dog of course) rented a pontoon boat on Patoka Lake in Hoosier National Forest, just over the river in Indiana. For around $80 (including gas!) we puttered around the lake all day. We fished, we drank, we swam, I drank more because Nick was driving, I swam more because I was drinking so much. You get the picture. It was an amazing time.
It's just about an hour drive(much closer than the oh-so-famous Lake Cumberland) and the lake is lovely.
So pack up the cooler and give it a shot. There might not be many more warm weekends in our future so take advantage of them while they're here!
