Pontoon the Beautiful
We live on Posey Lake in Hudson, Mich., and every year we have a boat parade for the Fourth of July. This year, my granddaughter, Cassidy, was the Statue of Liberty and kept her balance and her hand in the air the entire trip around the lake – which takes about 45 minutes!

Sleeping on the Job
When my in-laws celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary, we all met at Pokagon State Park for the weekend. One of the highlights was renting a pontoon boat for the day, on which my father-in-law promptly took a nap while the rest of us fished.

One Last Ride
My two nieces, my good friend and I are all teachers who come up to the cabin in mid-October to celebrate our annual girls’ weekend. One of our activities is to take out the pontoon for the last ride of the season. We have been known to dress up in snowmobile suits and go out for a midnight ride too!

The Perfect Perch
A blue heron uses our pontoon to spot his next meal.

This is how we have fun and save gas at the same time on Long Lake.
