Today the weather was beautiful!! So my mom and I and two of her friends went to Lake Julian and rented a pedal boat! It was so lovely! It was also my first time every being in any type of boat.
Lake Julian is a man made lake, and its purpose is to be a cooling agent for the local power plant. So unfortunately you can't do any swimming in the water, but you are able to rent boats for fairly cheap. Even though there is always that gigantic air-polluting energy plant looming in the background the whole time, the lake is a really beautiful place with nice parks and is plentiful in ducks and geese. You have to admit though, the energy plant does look pretty majestic against the lake.
These pedal boats are so neat!!
What a workout!!
The best part was when ducks began to follow our little boat around! It was so adorable! They were hoping that we had something yummy for them to eat but unfortunately we didn't think to bring bread along. Sometimes they had trouble keeping up but would catch up when we stopped, then circle our boat! They were so precious!
They were some very brave little critters.
It was a very enjoyable day overall and I can't wait to go back!
