Milk Run

Can you imagine going to the grocery store by boat? In Leland, you can hop in a little boat, drive through the river, tie up at the dock provided and climb these steps to the grocery store. The pretty planters shown here match the window boxes out front. So cute. I've noticed that teenagers don't mind "running an errand" when they get to go by boat.

Now that is what I call a milk run.

How delightful. The only time we did that was when my family owned a holiday house on our lower lakes, at a place called Clayton. It was 8 miles by river to the nearest town of Goolwa. My family would all pack into the speedboat to go shopping but there wasn't room for everyone so I always had to ski. That's 16 miles!! I was only in my late teens/early twenties so I was fit enough then. I'd never be able to contemplate it these days.
I love this photo, Anne.

I love it, Mmebenaut! What a great story - thanks for sharing. I know my readers will think waterskiing to town is fantastic.
