We love where we live.  Not only are we three hours from the beach or mountains, but there is always something to do.  Especially in the spring and fall, before and after the humidity.  There are swamps to explore, rivers to walk on.  We can go to baseball games or kayak the canal.  Or, in this one date night, take a beautiful open air cruise…with music…on the canal.

It was probably one of the most memorable and beautiful date nights we have had.   There was a great interpretive museum before we went on the two hour or so cruise.  We had no idea what to expect with the music and all we knew was that it was bluegrass.  The music did not disappoint.

Another treat was we were able to watch the sunset.

This is Butt Bridge.  I know what you are thinking and you can snicker all you want.  But (no pun…okay, yeah it was), Sir Archibald Butt was a hero of the Titanic sinking and an ambassador for the United States.  He is credited with saying “Women and children first.”  So, this bridge may be called Butt Bridge but there is a reason for it…besides the obvious.

Bonus treat was watching the sunset.

Mark and I agreed that this would definitely not be our last canal cruise!

My advice:  Don’t just sit around complaining there is nothing to do…go out and explore!  You may very well be missing out on a true hidden treasure.
