Cedar Creek, Joe Pool, Fork, and Lewisville are all the lakes here in North Texas that I have been to. Our family owned a lake house on Cedar Creek lake for most my younger years. I would love to swim, fish and go canoeing across the lake. My grandfather would also take us out on the lake in his Sea Ray and whip us around on skies or a tube. I can tell you that nothing makes you learn to swim than getting dumped off a inner tube at 15 mph (that is fast on water). I loved those summer days. Some days I sure miss being on the lake with Ron and my GranGran.

DFW Boat Expo

These days we do not have a boat, but I would love to be able to have one. In fact, we are going to the DFW Boat Expo next week just to browse. This expo is going to be one of the largest events of its kind ever. It is being held at the Dallas Market Hall and will have over 450 boats and watercraft will be on display. If you are looking for a new boat, 20 North Texas Boat Dealers and 100 vendors will be taking part in the four day show.
