Come summer and most of the people living in the Pacific North West take to the water, though the waters are quite chilly. The calm waters of the Puget Sound and the heavy rainfall that this state receives make it a famous boating destination.
I went through the same emotion one fine summer day and took to the waters on a speedboat off the Whidbey Island. Exploring the vast waters with the controls of a speed boat in your hand is an exhilarating experience.
Even better when you anchor your boat in the middle of nowhere. I certainly get an awesome kick out of it. Do you?
