At Lake MacBride

This post is a continuation of our vacation in Iowa last July. Six of us went to the lake one fine day that summer and that includes me, hubby, Wayne, Melissa, Sherry and JJ. Lake MacBride is located in the South-East part of Iowa. It is approximately 12 miles south of Cedar Rapids, IA. As usual, we brought with us some foods to eat so we don't have to starve or buy instant food sold at their counter. Lots of people were boating that day, some were swimming, others were sunbathing.

We ate lunch first and then Sherry, JJ and Wayne went canoeing. I never rode a canoe before and I was hesitant to try so I just watched them while riding their canoes. I was later persuaded by Sherry to try the paddle boat when I went down the ramp to the boat rental place, where they rent out canoes, fishing pontoons, rowboats, weird water-bicycle-floaty-things and of course paddle-boats. It was warm that day but I enjoyed the scenic view we passed by while on the paddle boat. My skin became darker after that. I was the only Filipino among the group and I look so dark sitting beside these fair-skinned Caucasians. It made me wish to have a fair skin too, lol!

looks like you have tons of fun! We haven't tried picnics yet. I don't think it is a good idea here anyway. The tropics is bugged with bunches upon bunches of mosquitoes. hehe :)
