Bicycle on Water across this big blue planet called Earth!
Water covers most of our home we call Earth. 71% of it is covered by saltwater with the remaining 29% comprised of continents & islands and their freshwater lakes & rivers. Only 2.5% of the Earth's water is fresh water that is found in lakes, rivers & frozen glacial waters.
75% of all land on Earth is located within 1 mile of a waterway so most of us have live very near to water. We all have access to enjoy it's beauty! I hope this article will help to remind us of the pleasant memories of spending time on the water.
Boating and being on the water has had a huge impact on my life. I have always been drawn to it from the time I was very young. Many memories of life on the Great Lakes are with me today largely due to my parents and grandparents. We went boating, picniced on small islands & fished every summer. I would like to share some photos of those memories. The first one is of me & my Dad when I was about 6 years old.
Many young men found their love for boating while serving in the military. My Dad & his younger brother both served in the Navy.
Their father's before them (my Grandfather) loved being on the water & taught his children to fish & we were in turn taught as well. We learned to respect this Earth, all it's creatures & the waterways. To this day I remember the smell of the water & fall leaves on the ground.
Yes, this is a sturgeon that was caught during the 1950's (now protected) in Cheboygan County Michigan. They are now protected as they are considered a living dinosaur of the Great Lakes!
Not surprising that I married the little boy in the picture with his father & grandfather who also loved the water, fishing & boating!
We are now passing that legacy on to our children & grand children.
Time spent on the water as families will never be forgotten! Sea-Cycles and WaterBikes are made for good, clean family fun!
