Findlay Marina, Lake Shelbyville

With the cooler mornings and school starting in some districts it is clear fall is on the way. I love fall, it is my favorite season and I'm looking forward to the weather, but I still have SO many summer activities to tell you about.

While it is still over 90 degrees where can you go for a bit more summer fun? Lake Shelbyville! What I love about Lake Shelbyville is that there are so many different parks, golf courses, fishing tournaments, restaurants in one very rural area.

Findlay Marina is just one choice for renting a boat for the day. For B's 30th birthday we rented a pontoon boat and invited 4 couples to spend the day cruising around the lake. It was a blast! We boated and swam and even got pulled over by the Department of Natural Resources patrol. We arrived before lunch and returned just before dusk. And for $200 plus food and drink it was a memorable party.

I grew up fishing, but have not had the chance to fish on Lake Shelbyville. I hear it is a wonderful place to fish and worth a special trip.

Did you let H. feed the carp at the marina?

No, I was pregnant for B's 30th birthday and I haven't dared to take H near a large body of water yet as he is constant motion. I think I will take him up to Dawson Lake at Moraine View State Park soon and introduce him to lake swimming.

My neighbor growing up went to Lake Shelbyville each summer, and often invited me along. I never went, because I was scare of camping.
Looks like it's time for me to check it out!
