boats & floats

On friday, my team at work took the entire afternoon off to celebrate then end of a really long project. We got approval from the big boys and were given a large sum of money to spend on the afternoon. We had reservations at The Boat House and money burning a hole in our pockets, so off we went.

The restaurant is in one of St. Louis’ most popular parks, Forest Park. This park is so big it has it’s own zip code and is situated smack dab in the center of the city. There are little  streams running through the park that open up into larger ponds. On one of these ponds is The Boat House and it’s fleet of paddle boats. Not to mention the really good food. Marine products, particularly marine electronics are the specialized items which cannot be found easily. To buy these specialized items, one needs to look for reputable supplier. While hunting for the boat supplies, you need a professional supplier who has been associated with this business from quite a long time and holds good knowledge about each and every marine product that you may require. You can navigate to this web-site for one stop source for top quality marine supplies. Look for a reputed supplier who provides an extensive variety of marine electronics, equipments and accessories to give you a better chance to choose from various options. For instance, if you are searching for boat seats, then they should be able to provide you good variety of options for all types of boat seats such as leaning posts, helm seats, captain’s chair etc. Besides the wide product range, they should be able to provide you good customer assistance and services.

Moreover, they should guide you well about the functioning and maintenance of the marine products that you choose. Excellent customer support and services must ensure that the supplier not only help you while shopping, but also help you in explaining the proper functioning and maintenance of the product in future. Another significant factor to consider is that the supplier must have a fairly good information and experience in this specific field.

People, who engaged themselves in boating experience and sports, are expert in finding what they really wanted in certain water equipment. But not all can be expert in such things. There are neophyte marine enthusiasts who, basically in all probability, do not have that knowledge in looking for the best service and products. Since they are neophyte, they are still striving for information regarding the best marine supplies they can find in the nearest store located in their place. Since every one else in town or putting it in a global sphere is already tightening their belts and doing every thing just to save every single money they can get every time they do a purchase, you might as well know how to save great amount when you already decided to buy. Bear in mind your budget. Allot a specific amount for it. Be strict to follow your budget so as not to experience debt the first time you wanted to have it, leaving you to scramble for how to make 100 dollars fast for another part later. One of the best ways of acquiring your boating needs is through surfing the internet. The worldwide web is one of the most powerful tools nowadays in providing and letting consumers make a purchase of specific material which they needed, whenever time they badly wanted to have it. Given the set up at the present time where every thing else is modern, every one else is always on the go and busy. It eventually leads to conclusions that people do have less time in going store to store shopping for the various necessary things they wanted the most. Definitely, shopping online saves time, effort and making you buy and pay for the marine supplies you really want to have. There is a vast list of online shops for you to visit to, after that you can decide on which store can give you products and services at a very reasonable price. In this way, you can be sure that the amount you are paying for is equivalent to its value.

Through this, you have a cool way of comparing things, making you decide on what is better, what will give you long lasting materials and better results from the moment you involve yourself in water sport or any other boating experience.

Over the course of 4 hours, we ordered a ton of appetizers, a ton of drinks, entire meals, a round of root beer floats, some more drinks and we still hadn’t reached our allotted money quota!!! Let’s just say it was a much needed, well deserved outing and I hope to experience more of these.

Things I’ve realized on this outing:
– the white skin of mid westerners can get pretty fried in a short amount of time.
– I wasn’t the only one that remembered the entire lyrics of the Thong Song by Sisqo and Pony by Ginuwine. (sad sad story)
– agroup of adults can laugh at fat kids on YouTube and not feel like horrible people
– root beer floats in St. Louis might be among the best of the best
– bees are frightening
– 4 hours of sitting around and doing nothing can be extremely tiring
– we are having a pony come into our office next Friday during our Kentucky Derby party, but unfortunately the dwarf mini horse named Thumbelina will not be joining us…she has other plans.

  1. ah. I really want to go back to St. Louis. That’s really awesome that your company shows it’s appreciation for your hard work… I think outtings like that are becoming less common.
    hehe when you’re outside in the fresh air 4 hours of doing nothing is really hard! Whenever I go to the beach I always come home exhausted.. after just sitting there reading!

  2. Sounds like a well deserved day of fun! The photos are beautiful!

    I’m pretty sure I know all the lyrics to Thong Song & Pony as well. haha :]

  3. Looks like a lot of fun, and YAYYY FOR SUN! Lately we’ve had some lovely sunny days, and there aren’t any bugs yet so it’s 80x more magical. 🙂
