Lake Gifts Perfect for Christmas

We all miss the lake in the winter months.

But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be getting ready for next season!

Time at the beach. Relaxing on a boat. Enjoy cocktails in the heat of the summer.  It will be here before we know it.

I found this website called Signals.com that has a section full of lake gifts.

If you have a loved one who enjoys being at the lake, these are perfect gifts for Christmas!

I just love the tote above! Be sure to pass this on to your loved ones (or Santa) hint hint : )

Olympic Sports at The Lake of the Ozarks

If you’re like us, the London Olympics have been on our television constantly ever since kicking off.  We’ve watched everything from gymnastics, to water polo, volleyball, and table tennis.  Another sport we love to watch is kayaking.

Of course, not everyone wants an intense race to the finish line.

That’s why at the Lake of the Ozarks, you can rent a kayak and take a relaxing journey down the little Niangua River or paddle around on the lake.

Be sure to check out Little Niangua Campground and Lake of the Ozarks State Park for kayak rentals.

You don’t have to be an Olympian…but be prepared to work your arms and take in the beautiful sights and sounds of the Ozarks life!
